Data as Henry V

“The Defector.” By Ronald D. Moore. Perf. Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton, and Michael Dorn. Dir. Robert Scheerer. Star Trek: The Next Generation. Season 3, episode 10. Syndicated television. 1 January 1990. DVD. Paramount, 2002.

Chronologically, the clip below precedes the one in my previous post. This encounter that the Enterprise has with Shakespeare is one I've already written about. But that was a long time ago in a galaxy far . . . oh, wait a minute. Wrong Star-related quotation.

In any case, Data plays the role of Henry V in this holodeck presentation of the play:
