Every time I think my Shakespeare and Star Trek Complete post is complete, I find just one more reference to Shakespeare.

Some may think that the starship is named for Horatio Nelson, but I think it more likely to have been named after the character in Hamlet. Watch the salient points in the clip below and see if you don't agree:
