(written from a Production point of view)
In a letter sent by the Committee for Quadcentenial, Jean-Luc Picard received confirmation that he would be attending a series of commeration activities in honor of the Apollo 11 moon landings. The activities would last for four days. Concluding the confirmation, the writer quoted this charater's lines from the play. The lines were,
- Four days will quickly steep themselves in night;
- Four days will quickly dream away the time.
- And, then the moon, like to a silver bow,
- New-bent in heaven, shall behold the night
- Of our solemnities. (Act 1, Scene 1)
The writer advised Picard not to be solemn.
