In the Star Trek novel Burning Dreams, Margaret Wander Bonnano invents a history for Christopher Pike, James T. Kirk's predecessor. Bonnano writes that Pike's father was part Native, Cherokee, and his stepmother was "mostly Mojave, with a little bit of Navajo." These two raised Pike during his teen years and taught him Indian-style values, including respect for the land and its inhabitants. Presumably Pike transmitted these values to the people he subsequently met, including Spock and the crew of the Enterprise.
