Would they have to?

I highly doubt that it's part of their IP (I don't recall it from the show), and that seems to be where CBS has the most say -- what IP they will allow to be used, not what made-up easter eggs can't be introduced.

We have been told in the past that CBS has to approve everything that goes in the game, including Cryptic's own designs.

Sure... if they're meant for actual use in-game. Making testing placeholders that never get used in live assets is nothing new to game development. I loved looking at test junk in another MMO's game files

I don't care how long you've been playing. I only care about how you play.

Heh. Set this aside for a random drop on April Fools Day 2013. I wouldn't mind getting one just for kicks and giggles.

Come on. It's a joke.

This from the IP that gave us Space Lincoln, et al. Probably doesn't belong on holodeck, but you can be sure I'd be saluting with fireworks if I saw this on tribble.

On a side note, I jokingly asked Jamz for such a ship when he popped onto TTS the other day. Well played.

ok... I'll bite...

So what if they didn't... Has it somehow destroyed your enjoyment of the game?

My only problem with it is that I found it to be rather lacking... it needs oars.
