  • Moby-Dick, the great white whale, was a fictional character created by writer Herman Melville in his book of the same name, originally published 1851. During his lifetime Moby-Dick was constantly being hunted by Captain Ahab, one of who's legs had been bitten off by the great white whale. But after their passing, both Ahab and Moby-Dick ended up as ghosts, living together forever on the Phantom Prison Planet. Over the course of 600 years together, Ahab set aside his grudge and began to see the great white whale as his best, and only friend. The two of them were inseparable until the villainous ghost pirate Harpoon hatched a scheme to use Moby-Dick in his scemes to plunder space faring luxury cruisers. First, Harpoon had to seperate Ahab from the whale, by capturing him and holding him in chains on the Phamtom Prison Planet. Luckily, Futura, Jessica Wray and Time Hopper managed to rescue Ahab by allowing themselves to be taken captive and brought to the place Ahab was being kept. Together they sought out Moby-Dick to help the Ghostbusters free the great white whale from Harpoon.

  • "Moby Dick" était un roman publié par Herman Melville en 1851. L'histoire décrit la quête obsessionnelle du capitaine Achab pourchassant un grand cachalot blanc appelé Moby Dick qui lui avait arraché une jambe par le passé. Cette obsession conduisit Achab et son vaisseau à la destruction. (Réalité extrapolée *) En 1986, lors d'une visite au Cetacean Institute, l'un des visiteurs demanda si les baleines attaquaient les gens comme dans "Moby Dick", le Dr. Gillian Taylor expliqua qu'ils ne pouvaient pas car la plupart des baleines n'ont pas de dents. ("Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home") Khan Noonien Singh avait lu "Moby Dick", livre qui figurait d'ailleurs dans la librairie du SS Botany Bay, tout en étant désireux de se venger de James T. Kirk. Durant la recherche et la bataille avec Kirk, il cita des extraits de ce roman ("...To the last, I grapple with thee; from hell's heart, I stab at thee; for hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee."), et adapta certaines lignes ("I'll chase him round the moons of Nibia and round the Antares maelstrom and round perdition's flames before I give him up!"). ("Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan") En 2063, Lily Sloane compara l'attitude de Jean-Luc Picard envers les Borgs au désir d'Achab de détruire la baleine blanche, lorsque Picard insistait pour les combattre au lieu de détruire l'USS Enterprise-E avec les Borgs. Cela mit Picard dans une telle rage qu'il détruisit la vitrine des maquettes de vaisseaux du passé dans la salle d'observation. Puis, le capitaine réalisa qu'elle avait raison, paraphrasant un vers ("And he piled upon the whale's white hump the sum of all the rage and hate felt by his whole race. If his chest had been a cannon, he would have shot his heart upon it.") Sloane admit qu'elle n'avait en fait jamais lu le livre. ("Star Trek: First Contact") Lorsque les Qatais invitèrent le Docteur à se joindre à sa quête de destruction d'une plante carnivore télépathique en 2375, le Docteur répliqua, "My Ishmael to your Achab?" (VOY: "Bliss") Tom Paris appréciait "Moby Dick" lorsqu'il était enfant. (VOY: "Thirty Days")
  • Moby-Dick was a novel by American author Herman Melville. The story describes Captain Ahab's obsessive quest to hunt down the eponymous white sperm whale that had maimed him years earlier. In the end, Ahab's thirst for vengeance destroyed both him and his ship. In 1986, a tour goer in one of Doctor Gillian Taylor's tours at the Cetacean Institute asked her if whales attacked people like in Moby-Dick, leading Dr. Taylor to explain that they did not, because most whales didn't have teeth. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home) During his exile on Ceti Alpha V, Khan Noonien Singh read a copy of Moby-Dick published by Signet as he became immersed in his own desire for revenge on James T. Kirk. During his search and battle with Kirk, he quoted lines from the novel. While some were direct quotes (such as the line above), Khan changed others to reference space. For example, Khan stated "I'll chase him round the moons of Nibia and round the Antares maelstrom and round perdition's flames before I give him up!" (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) The original, from the novel's thirty-sixth chapter, is "I'll chase him round Good Hope, and round the Horn, and round the Norway Maelstrom, and round perdition's flames before I give him up!" Some thematic elements from the movie were borrowed from the plot of Moby-Dick, including Khan's relentless pursuit of Kirk which ultimately results in his own death and the loss of his ship. Its cultural significance was such that the story was well-known to most people on Earth regardless of their literary knowledge. In 2063, Lily Sloane compared Jean-Luc Picard's hatred for the Borg to Ahab's desire to destroy the white whale when he insisted on fighting them rather than destroying the Enterprise and the Borg along with it, sending Picard into such a rage that he destroyed the display of Enterprise's past in the ship's observation lounge – but when the captain, realizing she was absolutely right, paraphrased a verse from the forty-first chapter, ("And he piled upon the whale's white hump the sum of all the rage and hate felt by his whole race. If his chest had been a cannon, he would have shot his heart upon it.") Sloane, clearly unfamiliar with the words, admitted she had never actually read the book. (Star Trek: First Contact) The original is "He piled upon the whale's white hump the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been a mortar, he burst his hot heart's shell upon it." When Qatai invited The Doctor to join him on his quest to destroy the telepathic pitcher plant in 2375, The Doctor replied, "My Ishmael to your Ahab?" (VOY: "Bliss") Tom Paris was fond of Moby-Dick when he was a child. (VOY: "Thirty Days")
