Shakespeare Dialogue in XI.
Should we have it used in XI like in TUC? I personally think they went overboard with it in that movie but isn't Star Trek modern day Shakespeare being told?

Should we have it used? The film's already in the can! lol It's a little too late for that, isn't it? :)

Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day.
Then shall our names,

It is now the very witching time of night
When Romulans sleep and the wormhole itself breathes out tachyons to this world
Now could I drink hot brandy and lay with Orions whom during bitter day I would quake to look onto.

KLINGON: By my family's honour, hand me that bloodwine!
FALSTAFF : What is honour? A word. What is in that word honour? What is that honour? Air, a trim reckoning.
KLINGON: You better be silent and give me my bloodine, peta'Q!
FALSTAFF: Honour, who hath it? He that died a Wednesday. Doth he feel it? No. Doth he hear it? No. 'Tis insensible then? Yea, to the dead. But will it not live with the living? No. Why? Detraction will not suffer it. Therefore I'll none of it. Honour is a mere scutcheon - and so ...
