In DS9: It's Only a Paper Moon Nog asks the hologram character Vic Fontaine,

"Do you dream?"

Is this a reference to HAL from 2001: a Space Odyssey?

    Curiosity, perhaps? – Harry Johnston May 30 '18 at 5:55
  • Would it be 2001 or 2010 that would be the reference? In the movie version of 2010, Dr. Chandra reveals to HAL that HAL and the Discovery might be destroyed when Discovery is left behind, and HAL asks Dr. Chandra, "Will I dream?" – Todd Wilcox May 30 '18 at 13:08
  • Do androids dream of electric sheep? In an alternate universe, Vic is an android, not a hologram. – barrycarter May 30 '18 at 18:58
  • @barrycarter In an alternate universe, Vic would be an enjoyable character. I really hate him. He just brings morbid songs and horrendous story lines. It would have been a novelty if Frank Sinatra Jr played him, but without that novelty, he's nothing! – n00dles Jun 6 '18 at 3:38
