Those at the table echoed him and raised their glasses. 'The undiscovered country.'

The part of Romeo was already taken by this annoyingly heroic-looking young man. Only the nurse had any other real scenes with her, and I was willing to go to whatever lengths to be close to her... Oh Lord. I wore a hot, sweaty nurse's costume for four weeks of performances, not to mention rehearsals, for a girl whose name I can't remember anymore.' "

The reason there were two actors was that one was human, while the other was Klingon. Or at least an actor dressed up as a Klingon, for the owners had not managed to actually locate a Klingon who was willing to go along with the charade. The fact was that the true origin of Shakespeare's plays had become something of an issue between Klingon and Terran historians, both claiming that the other race had swiped the Master's work--and planet of origin--without so much as a by-your-leave.
As a result, in Shakespeare's Tavern, the human and faux Klingon would occasionally face-off against one another and emote in their respective languages. Robin hated to admit it, but the faux Klingon seemed to show far more passion for the Klingon text than the human did for the English. "

What's that from, Ramos?'
'Shakespeare . . . Henry V,' I replied, glad that I happened to remember; but I hoped Chee wouldn't quote from Timon of Athens. I had skipped Timon in the Academy Shakespeare course; Jelca had actually said yes to going on a date, and it put me in such a dither, I couldn't concentrate for three days.

In their hands, everything became two pages long. The Bible, The Tempest, The Republic, Paradise Lost. There they were, neatly capsulized in the memory of SKULD, waiting to be printed out on two pages. So, of course, for the thousands of novices who read nothing else, those summaries became the work.
