47 is an important and integral part of Star Trek. You might as well ask them to stop talking about phasers or warp drive as well.

I do kind of agree with the OP's point, but in a more general sense; the writers on STO are working much too hard to make everything in game a reference to an episode of the shows, I'd like to see less of that and more focus on STO-specific writing that doesn't just lift directly from the series.

Obviously feeling like you're a part of the show is great and all, but I don't want to spend too much time reliving episodes of it; New Romulus is the biggest step away, and the involvement of the Tholians has been interesting (though I hate fighting them). References to the number 47 I can ignore, but if the writers are working too hard to squeeze them in then it's detracting from the quality of everything else, which I do not like.

If you take away 5 from 47, you get 42. It's a conspiracy, and YOU'RE PART OF IT!

You can call it a better number if you like, I call it... I dunno... numbers or something.
