Bold Bones

Star Trek–Shakespeare’s Star Wars

I recently made a post about how drama compares to narrative and poetry. (Link to it here.) Shakespeare’s Star Wars by Ian Doescher is a good example of narrative (film) converted to drama employing poetry (verse). And I couldn’t help but think the line “To boldly go where none hath gone” was a Star Trek reference. While it is spoken by Han Solo in the Star Wars play, it fits perfectly with the character of Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy from the Star Trek movies.
