* CelebrityParadox: Given that there are several references to various aspects of late-20th century pop culture (e.g. punk rock, Jacqueline Susann, etc.), there's an underlying implication that the Star Trek series must not exist in this universe. (The implication is even stronger in the novelization. Kirk actually introduces himself to Dr. Gillian Taylor by saying "I'm Kirk, and this is Spock," and she doesn't react as if that's significant of anything--this within a larger sequence in which she marvels at their lack of familiarity with everything from Waylon Jennings to pizza.)

Sorta-mimicked in the Novelization, in a way: most of the tour group watch the videos without much trouble, but Kirk and Spock are disturbed to say the least, because to them such violence was uncommon in their century.
