To be, or not to be, that was the question. The answer is, yes, an abbreviated Klingon version of Hamlet is to be.

As reported by TrekMovie.com, Paramount is preparing new versions of original series movies for future Blu-ray release and part of the release will include new special features.

One of those special features will include two scenes from Shakespeare's Hamlet, filmed in the Klingon language, for inclusion on the special features section of Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country. The Undiscovered Country was the movie that included Chancellor Gorkon referring to Shakespeare in the original Klingon, as well as where General Chang quoted Shakespeare while attacking the Excelsior and the Enterprise.

The two scenes will be the "To be or not to be" speech, and the scene with "Alas, poor Yorick, I knew him, Horatio" graveyard scene, using a Klingon skull. The scenes are to be done by the Commedia Beauregard and filmed in the Twin Cities.
