Henry V

A scene from Henry V

For the character from the play, please see Henry V (character).

Henry V was a play written by the Human playwright William Shakespeare, the fourth part of a tetralogy that includes Richard II, Henry IV, Part I and Henry IV, Part II.

In 2293, General Chang quoted the play's lines "Once more unto the breach, dear friends" and "The game's afoot" while his Bird-of-Prey attacked the USS Enterprise-A over Khitomer. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

In 2364, in The Globe Illustrated Shakespeare: The Complete Works, there was an illustration of the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Bishop of Ely. This illustration was on display in Captain Jean Luc Picard's ready room on the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Home Soil", "Coming of Age")

The identification of this illustration was made by Jörg Hillebrand and Bernd Schneider for Ex Astris Scientia. [1]

In 2366, Data performed Act 4, Scene 1 of Henry V on the holodeck. The scene featured the characters of Michael Williams and John Bates, and Data played a disguised Henry V. Captain Jean-Luc Picard later quoted from the scene when confronted with a possible war with the Romulans and the destruction of his ship. Data planned to study the performances of Laurence Olivier, Kenneth Branagh, Shapiro and Kullnark as Henry V. (TNG: "The Defector")

In 2370, Henry V was among the literary works selected by Data to better understand Humanity. (TNG: "Emergence")

The title of the Deep Space Nine episode "Once More Unto the Breach" comes from Henry V.
Branagh's adaptation of Henry V was still in theaters when "The Defector" aired.
