** Spock's SpiritualSuccessor, [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Data]], naturally says the line [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness with his usual embellishment]] in the episode "Data's Day", while investigating the apparent [[TeleporterAccident transporter death]] of a Vulcan ambassador. Having determined that nothing is wrong with the ''Enterprise''-D's transporters, he has Dr. Crusher analyze the [=DNA=] trace left on the pad, and compare it to the ambassador's prevous transporter trace records.

* A variant occurs in ''GundamUnicorn.'' [[spoiler: The titular mech's La+ Program basically acts as a tracer that details the next location the Unicorn should travel to, to in order to get the true coordinates of Laplace's Box, whenever the [[SuperpoweredEvilSide NT-D system]] is activated. As it turns out the final coordinates given by the program was that of Industrial 7, which is ''exactly'' [[WhereItAllBegan where the entire story began]].]]
