* ActorAllusion: Ambassador S'taass is voiced by Creator/CharlieAdler, who has history of both [[SwatKats being a badass]] and [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeResolute being a]] [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeRenegades reptile]]. Hell, the devs once indicated he was voiced by "Cobra Commander"!

* ApprovalOfGod: When fans found out that the ''NX-Refit'', Doug Drexler's popular go-between of the ''NX''-class and the ''Constitution''-class, was going to show up in Season 12, the fans asked Drexler if he knew about this. Not only did he know about it, but he also gave his approval and is so happy that his design is finally being used somewhere outside of books.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Cryptic is allowed to use anything from the TV shows and prime timeline films because CBS owns the licenses to them. However, the [[Film/StarTrek JJverse]] is off-limits (they were allowed to use the story details up until the ''Jellyfish'' and ''Narada'' left the prime timeline, since they appeared in the ''Countdown'' comic series), and anything from the ''Franchise/StarTrekExpandedUniverse'' has to be negotiated for. Cryptic also had to negotiate to use the Guardian of Forever at the end of the "Klingon War" storyline, since the rights to that episode belong to a different copyright holder. CBS has also put at least three ships off-limits to be used or given major upgrades, the confirmed ones being the ''Enterprise''-J from ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'''s Temporal Cold War episodes, the Constitution-refit from the films[[note]]While there ''is'' a Constitution-refit ship in the game, it's only Tier 2 and CBS refuses to allow them to make a Tier-5/Fleet variant.[[/note]] and the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' Warbird[[note]]In about the same manner as the Connie refit -- the Romulan player actually ''starts'' with one, but this is Cryptic's explanation for why there is only a Tier 1 version of it.[[/note]] Apparently some kind of agreement or change happened with the lawyers before ''Agents of Yesterday'', however, as it included both a visit to the 'Kelvin Timeline' as well as usable ships from the films and related materials -- including a Tier 6 ''Constitution''.

And then Cryptic went one up with the introduction of the R&D-only prize of the T6 Light Cruiser/Warbird set, which gives players the mythical endgame Prime Universe ''Constitution''!

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Creator/ZacharyQuinto, a.k.a. [[Film/StarTrek Neo-Spock]], now provides the voice for the EMH Mark ''VI'', and will provide some narration for the tutorials.
** Leonard Nimoy as the general narrator. He'll be [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Mr. Freakin' Spock]], too. (The very first thing he says is to explain why that makes no damn sense, since the major changes he exposits happened after he left the main timeline.)
** Chase Masterson returns as [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Leeta]] (Well, a hologram of her anyway, but still), Michael Dorn reprises his role as [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Ambassador]] [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Worf]] (See IKnewIt below), Denise Crosby makes a comeback as [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Lt. Tasha Yar]] (and as Empress Sela in ''Legacy of Romulus''), and Tim Russ comes back as [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Tuvok.]]
** Popular voice actor Creator/CharlieAdler voices Ambassador S'tass. As a joke, [=CaptainGeko=] once stated that S'tass' voice actor was "Cobra Commander", a nod towards Adler's role as the Cobra leader in recent ''Franchise/GIJoe'' installments.

* DuelingGames: With ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', a fellow FreeToPlay MMO likewise based on a long-running soft science fiction franchise. ''STO'' came out first but ''TOR'' was in a more complete state at launch, though the gap has long since vanished and both games are profitable. ''TOR'' also later added multiplayer space combat, while ''STO'' remains the only major MMO to have fully supported both space and ground combat at launch. The FandomRivalry of their respective parent franchises is certainly there, though there are large numbers of gamers who unashamedly play both.
