Celebration Quotation – March 4, 2016

Today’s quote is from Julius Caesar – but if you are a Star Trek fan, you may recognize it as one of the lines spouted by Christopher Plummer’s  Shakespeare-spouting Klingon commander in the film Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (a title that also borrows from Shakespeare.)

"Cry 'Havoc!' and let slip the dogs of war!" Julius Caesar, Act III, Scene 2

The Shakespeare-Star Trek connection is extensive – you can find it cataloged here at Memory Alpha Wikia – an online encyclopedia of all things Star Trek.

The image is an engraving of a painting by German artist Johann Heinrich Ramberg, published in1805.
