The Introduction of the Klingon Hamlet suggests a massive, fraudulent rewriting of history as the reason that Terrans believe that a human named William Shakespeare wrote Hamlet from his imagination in the 1600s in place of the truth that the Klingon Wil'yam Shex'pir wrote Khamlet and that the English version is but a translation of the original Klingon. This history-rewriting theory is challenged, and an alternative theory involving time travel is offered, in which Wil'yam Shex'pir travels back in time to become William Shakespeare and to translate his own works into English. This alternative theory is supported by references to Star Trek canon and other writings.
