What does Elvis need with a starship? (get it?)

~~~

Anyway, I would think that Data and Worf would get some recognition simply because they're one of a kind -- Data in particular is a technological breakthrough that hasn't yet been duplicated to that level by someone other than Soong. Picard would also perhaps become famous simply because of his feats from his position.

Dr. Crusher and LaForge would probably be more famous among academia, but not the general public. They seemed to attend quite a few conferences, and no one can deny their own breakthroughs.

Can't speak for the others, though I'd love it if O'Brien somehow became an unlikely internet celebrity for whatever reason.

Re: How recognizable is the enterprise crew?

Harriman read about Kirk's missions when he was in grade school - those missions (if S1 TOS) were probably around 30 years earlier and Harriman wasn't that old so the information might've been somewhat public right around when it was happening.

Re: How recognizable is the enterprise crew?

Rather than comparing it to real life military I would compare it to astronauts. I would think they'd be at the very least mini-celebrities. Debatable evidence: Picard being almost thrown a parade in Family.

If military people IRL were regularly making first contact with different species I think people would know some personalities... unless it was all classified. In that case a lot of people would dislike starfleet.
