Julius Caesar was a play written by the human playwright William Shakespeare about the assassination of the early Roman leader Julius Caesar.

Julian Bashir introduced Elim Garak to the play, although Garak found it to be farcical, telling Bashir he knew Brutus was going to kill Caesar in the first act. During the Battle of the Omarion Nebula in 2371, Garak paraphrased a line from Julius Caesar to his father Enabran Tain: "The fault, dear Tain, is not in our stars but in ourselves." (DS9 episodes: "Improbable Cause", "The Die is Cast")

Garak also found Julius Caesar to be "politically misguided." (DS9 novel: A Stitch in Time)

Alternate timeline[]

In an alternate timeline, Admiral William T. Riker attempted to quote Shakespeare in 2408 by claiming that he wrote "the fault is in the stars." Commodore Data corrected him by pointing out that the correct quote is from Julius Caesar Act One, Scene Two: "Men at some time are masters of their fates: The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings." (TNG novel: Imzadi)
