# 1 Just caught a TOS reference...
09-14-2013, 11:26 PM
Was running the "Project Nightingale" mission again and noticed a character reference, not sure if intentional to the TOS episode "The Naked Time."

When you hail the USS Nobel, you speak with Lt. Kathleen Riley. Could this be the descendant of the same Riley from the USS Enterprise that locks the crew out of Engineering while singing over the intercom, "I'll take you home again, Kathleen"?

There's also the fact that the T5 T'varo light warbird comes with a console that lets you shoot the plasma weapon from Balance of Terror.

And the enhanced battlecloak on it has the ship decloack long enough to fire it then reclak just like the Romulan
ship did in that episode.

And then there is some Romulans being allowed to use Klingon ships in STO.
