First off, this isn't a Star Trek post, although there is a tenuous connection! Rather I am refererring to John Masefields wonderfully evocative poem, 'Sea Fever'
I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.
