* TheDanza: the name "Flores" was simply the last name of the actress originally portraying the character in the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Disaster," presumably since it was a one-time appearance and so there was no need to invent a fully-fictitious name. (Little did they know....)
** The actress, [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0282810/ Erika Flores]], later played Colleen Cooper for the first two-and-a-half seasons of ''Series/DrQuinnMedicineWoman'', and appeared in an episode of ''Series/{{House}}'' and of ''[[TheLoveBoat Love Boat: The Next Wave]]''. Coincidentally, her sister is named ''Melissa'' Flores.
** Someone familiar with the fanfic has listed the character on IMDB as Marissa Flores (although this is how it appears at the end of the episode)



* OldShame: Ratliff has since admitted he regrets writing "Time Speeder". Unfortunately, he chose to try to revise it rather than totally erasing it from existence.

In late 1993, one Stephen Ratliff wrote a ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' FixFic to rescue the alternate-timeline Tasha Yar and redeem her half-Romulan daughter Sela, and posted it to the {{Usenet}} group alt.startrek.creative. As a B-plot, Ratliff took several of the [[IncrediblyLamePun minor]] preteen characters who appeared in single episodes of the series--notably including Marissa Flores and Jay Gordon from the episode "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS5E5Disaster Disaster]]", Clara Sutter of "Imaginary Friend", and Worf's son Alexander--and gave them the keys to the saucer while the grown-ups were away.

** Takes a massive level in hilarity when you realise (as Ratliff evidently didn't) that the actual county of Essex is otherwise considered basically the UK version of NewJersey. Especially [[TheDitz in terms of blonde teen girls]].

Maybe with a disclaimer: it's important to note that this character is NOT a parody or satire on MarySue characters. If it were, it would be pure and absolute genius... but sadly, the author is actually ''serious.''
