Star Trek: The Next Generation Easter Egg - Forty-Seven!
The number 47 has been prominently featured in Star Trek since Joe Menosky joined the show's staff as a story editor in the fourth season. Menosky, a graduate of Pomona College, carried the "47" plot over from his alma mater and into the Star Trek universe. Since then it has appeared in almost every incarnation of Star Trek. The number turns up in onscreen graphics, statistics named by characters, and other locations in the show. More than a few websites have been devoted to the number's appearance in Star Trek, and a real-life society has been formed to track their occurence throughout daily life.
