Yes.  Then, of course, there was the episode about the centuries-old
alien who had been Aristotle and Michelangelo and Shakespeare . . . who
invented the "perfect woman," she who being forced to choose between her
creator and Kirk, promptly gave up the ghost.  Can't recall the title of
that one, either-but I think her name was "Gem."

"The Conscience of the King," if memory serves.

Other original series Shakespeare-inspired titles include "All Our
Yesterdays," "By Any Other Name," and "Dagger of the Mind."
