Holy Grail
Any objective of a long and difficult quest. In Old Earth lore, the Grail refers to the plate or cup used by Christ at the Last Supper. The Holy Grail subsequently became the object of knights' quests in tales from the late Agricultural Age of Europe, and became a recurrent image in subsequent Western literature. The term has since been adapted to contexts completely unrelated or irrelevant to the original.
