The inhabitants retreat into stasis pods intending to be revived in 5 years. It won’t be until Voyager‘s encounter in 2375. Note that the Vaadwaur during this period were an aggressive race and through their subspace corridor technology have explored and colonized a wide range of worlds in the Delta Quadrant.

Regardless, his plays will be presented through the 23rd and 24th Centuries, and in different styles including Arcturian. The theaters of Emben III will offer some of the best productions. Even the Klingons will be quite impressed with rewritten Shakespeare in the 23rd century. Kirk, Spock, Dr. McCoy, and many others will quote Shakespeare, as will the Klingon General Chang. Briefly on Vulcan after the Enterprise-A‘s decommissioning, Captain Spock will become a Shakespearian actor. Aboard the Galaxy-class Enterprise-D in the 2360s, Captain Picard will have a copy of Shakespeare’s works on display in his ready room. Various plays will be recreated in the holodecks by Data and Picard including “Henry V” and “The Tempest” (holodeck program Data 7-3). On Deep Space Nine, Garak will become acquainted with Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” through Dr. Bashir. In 2373, Q will hide from 0 within a simulation of “The Tempest” in Holodeck 7. The Shakespeare Tavern in El Dorado on Risa in 2374 will feature Klingon and Human debating over the true origin of Shakespeare’s plays. The Klingons claim that he was actually Wil’yam Shex’pir. In 2375, Q will take credit for Shakespeare’s works (“…the drunken sod I knew who couldn’t spell his name the same way twice…”).

The Cardassians will confess to finding the ancient remains of what corresponds to a Bajoran sail vessel on their world.
