    • Kirk: "How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child..."
      The title of this episode comes from a line in Shakespeare's "King Lear" -- 'How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child'. Presumably, this refers to the same theme explored in "Who Mourns For Adonais?"; that humanity has outgrown the "gods", and no longer needs them, despite what they gave it in the past.
