As You Like It was a play by the Human playwright William Shakespeare that included the popular line: "All the World's a stage and all the men and women merely players, they have their exits and entrances and one man in his life plays many parts, his act being seven stages..." which appeared on the dedication plaque of the USS Prometheus. (VOY: "Message in a Bottle" set artwork)

In 2364, Q paraphrased a quote from the play, saying that "All the galaxy's a stage", but was corrected by Picard. (TNG: "Hide and Q")

In 2365, and into the next year, several pages of this play from The Annotated Shakespeare were on display in Captain Jean-Luc Picard's ready room on the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "The Schizoid Man", "Evolution", "Ménage à Troi", "The Best of Both Worlds")

The identification of these pages was made by Jörg Hillebrand and Bernd Schneider for Ex Astris Scientia. [1] Pages from this play were also seen in "Loud As A Whisper", "The Measure Of A Man", "Contagion", "Time Squared", "Pen Pals", "The Ensigns of Command", "Unification I", "Conundrum", and "Violations".
