And while Lwaxana does get a namecheck, anyone who thinks the title is to do with her or the Sacred Chalice is off-base. This is more about the Macbeth quote...
Said quote being Act I Sc. vii l. 10-12: "This even-handed justice / Commends the ingredients of our poison’d chalice / To our own lips." Macbeth is hesitating over the killing of Duncan because he's contemplating the consequences that will befall him if his crime is discovered.
"Every line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism and for democratic Socialism, as I understand it." - George Orwell, 1946
