    Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow sounds straight out of TOS.

    I love it.

    I'm sure "Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow" is quoted in Spock vs Q.

    In the sense that TOS used plenty of Shakespeare-quote titles, yeah: "Dagger of the Mind," "The Conscience of the King," "By Any Other Name," "Wink of an Eye" (maybe), "All Our Yesterdays," The Undiscovered Country. Although there were a fair number of Shakespeare titles in other series -- TAS: "How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth," TNG: "Thine Own Self," DS9: "Past Prologue" (a paraphrase), "Heart of Stone" (maybe), "Once More Unto the Breach," and "The Dogs of War," VGR: "Mortal Coil," DSC: "Vaulting Ambition," "What's Past is Prologue," "Such Sweet Sorrow," and "There is a Tide...," LD: "Where Pleasant Fountains Lie," PRO: "All the World's a Stage," SNW: "A Quality of Mercy" (a paraphrase).

    So the only shows not to use Shakespearean titles are Enterprise and Picard, which seems ironic in the latter case.

    I noticed Kathryn Lyn (The Lower Decks writer who wrote wej Duj, and based T'Lyn on her own cosplay character) has co-writing credit on Those Old Scientists.

    I'm going to take this as a good sign.

    There's something beautiful and bittersweet and mysterious about it. Which, of course there would be since it's from Shakespeare.

    I take it as an excellent sign, since "wej Duj" was not only one of the greatest episodes of Lower Decks but is one of the greatest episodes of all of Star Trek, period.

    :lol: Columbo has an evil half? And shouldn't he be taking down a corrupt asylum administrator instead? (For the record, Columbo's "Dagger of the Mind" was the episode set in England with Honor Blackman as a Shakespearian actress.)

    BTW, I just found out today that the Lower Decks crossover episode will be partially animated, which makes me even MORE excited to see it!
