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.

Got 12 of 15 - missed numbers 6, 7, and 14. I know Shakespeare a little better than Star Trek but know neither of them well. Guessed at more than half of them so I'm good with the results. Kinda.

You got 14 out of 15 - Heigh ho! Didst thou guess correctly all? The only one I didn't know was #6 and I guessed wrong. I know Star Trek a lot better than Shakespeare so I should have ruled out Start Trek and guessed Shakespeare but.....alas, poor Yorick. :)

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.
