What a Dev does in their spare time is none of our business, so thats cool. That said, actually putting it in the game is basically making fun of the people who asked for a T5 connie. So if you guys want to make fun of players in such an official way...ok. Did CBS actually approve this being put in game?
it is only if you see it that way...
after all, people could have seen Galaxy Quest as a insulting parody of Star Trek, but they didn't. they saw the affectionate part of the parody.
and while this joke isn't exactly affectionate, it's not insulting either. it's simply a joke, so it's better to laugh and move on
