* A fairly common nickname for [[spoiler: the Catalyst is [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey the Starchild]]]]. This is doubly fitting, because Arthur C. Clarke was famous for writing novels with solid science [[spoiler: that took a sudden left swerve in the final act.]]

* A possible numerical anagram shoutout: [[spoiler: Legion has 1,183 geth programs in its platform.]] Although most would call it a StarWars ShoutOut, but it's really more of a ShoutOut to GeorgeLucas, who many attribute to the revival of the science fiction genre because of the popularity of the movies. The number comes from a film he made earlier called Film/THX1138, and has been hidden in all his movies since. It also pops up in various other places when the writer wants to shout out StarWars, IndianaJones, or Lucas himself.

* Spacer Shepards can eventually get an assignment called "Old, Unhappy, Far-Off Things". Assignment names tend to be straightforwards, but this unusually poetic one is actually a line from a William Wordsworth poem, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Solitary_Reaper The Solitary Reaper]].

* Franchise/{{Stargate|Verse}} shoutouts are a-plenty in this game. Most notably would have to be the Prothean artifact imprinting partial knowledge in Shepard's brain, and despite being the one unlikely human who was genetically capable of handling it, he still has to seek out the help of the advanced race who created the artifact to sort out his mind again. This same plot led to Shepard discovering the fate of the Protheans and saving the galaxy several times over and led O'Neill to discovering the Asgard and saving the galaxy several times over.

* Compare the opening of Film/TopGun [[note]]On March 3, 1969 the United States Navy established an elite school for the top one percent of its pilots. Its purpose was to teach the lost art or aerial combat and to insure that the handful of men who graduated were the best fighter pilots in the world. They succeeded. Today, the Navy calls it Fighter Weapons School. The flyers call it... TOP GUN[[/note]] to the opening text of ''Franchise/MassEffect'' [[note]]In the year 2148, explorers on Mars discovered the remains of an ancient spacefaring civilization. In the decades that followed, these mysterious artifacts revealed startling new technologies, enabling travel to the furthest stars. The basis for this incredible technology was a force that controlled the very fabric of space and time. They called it the greatest discovery in human history. The civilizations of the galaxy call it... MASS EFFECT[[/note]]
