Default 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,
Familiar in their mouths as household words,
James T the king,

Spock and McCoy,

Sulu and Chekov,
Scotty and Uhura,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.

No, only because it's been done already. Maybe something Roman would be fitting

There is more in Star Trek and literature, Horatio, Than is dreamed of in your philosophy.

That's a good one!

I think it's okay to reference the Bard once or twice in the new movie. Shakespeare and other classics certainly are a staple of Trek past, so it definitely wouldn't be out of place.

"O heart, lose not thy nature, let not ever the soul of Nero enter this firm bosom."

Or some enthusiastic Klingons on the field of battle!

"Hark! I hear their drum. Fight, warriors of Kahless! Fight, bold yoemen!
Draw, archers, draw your ba'thlets to the head! Spur your proud targs hard, and ride in blood; amaze the pe'tak with your broken staves!"
