Are these the names of Star Trek or Shakespeare characters?

Are Septimus, Balok and Tybalt from the 16th or the 23rd century?

Star Trek has many connections to Shakespeare. Episode names are drawn from the famous bard’s text and Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner, trained as a Shakespearian actor.

Both Star Trek episodes and Shakespeare’s plays involve everything from strange, otherworldly concepts to Earth’s ancient past. With that in mind, here are 15 names from both the iconic sci-fi series and the renowned renaissance playwright.

Come hither and guess each name whence it came.

One of THE best Shakespearean comedy plays ever, (In Living Color) Romeo & Juliet and the Star Trek skits are some of the best I’ve seen on line. 🤣🤣🤣 LMAO

Did much better, 13/15. I remember just about all of Star Trek's characters. Septimus & Drusila threw me off. I didn't like that Star Trek episode, "Bread and Circuses".

I got the same score. I started out strong and then it all went downhill. At warp speed.

4 out of 15 🤥. I always paid more attention to the wardrobe designs, especially the alien temptresses and also the always “Amok Time” fight scene music- 😊

11/15. Two were from a slip of the fingers.

There is a very funny British show called Upstart Crow about Wm. Shakespeare.

wow Don’t laugh but 4of15 I watch Star Trek quite a bit didn’t really keep up with a lot of the minor character names on certain episodes and other than Romeo and Juliet because I had to learn it in school never was big on Shakespeare so I guess that explains why I got 4 of 15.

"Didst thou guess correctly all?"
Base villain, stay thy tongue, and accuse me not thus! Ne'er spoke I any guesses upon this quest, save certain knowledge only!

Though in thine own second query and reply, thou did thyself speak falsely. For foul then fair Balok stood not as child, but fully grown being from a far world. The player who assayed the role was but mere child, that he should give, to the eye of those who were witness to the performance, semblance of diminution in stature.

Well said, Captain Dunsel! The name of the episode is also incorrectly spelled. It should be "Corbormite", not "Carbomite". This has been one of my favorite ST episodes.
