  • Fandom Nod: Early in "Light and Darkness", Kirk mentions the last line in the Enterprise's famous mission statement: "to boldly go where no man has gone before". Spock's reaction echoes a popular criticism:
    Spock: A split infinitive, Captain.
    Kirk: What?
    Spock: The proper grammatical expression is 'to go boldly where no man has gone before.'
    Kirk: Somehow I think it loses a little in the translation.

  • Polished Port: The Mac version of the game had improved music and sound effects, several bug fixes, and at least one additional pre-rendered cutscene.
  • Science Marches On: In "Light and Darkness", the Omegans profess their belief that all things began in a burst of light. Spock - an immaculate scientist of the 23rd century - remarks that this is in accordance with the Big Bang theory. However, we now know that the universe was not actually visible at all until around 380,000 years after the Big Bang. All matter in the universe was opaque until around the 300,000 year mark, and even then all electromagnetic radiation was compressed to non-visible microwaves for the next 80,000 years, before the first visible-light wavelengths appeared.
  • Throw It In!:
    • The CD-ROM talkie version of the game was made some time after it was initially released (on diskettes). Some of the spoken lines do not match the original text (for instance, whole sentences being skipped or altered). However in one particular piece of text where McCoy reports his medical scan of a cataleptic woman, he stumbles over his own words and stops halfway through a piece of Technobabble with an audible snigger. This was kept in (though it's possibly just bad Quality Assurance...).

    • Also, in the random combat sections, Uhura has a couple lines which are read by another actress, perhaps from a temp track. Oddly enough, the same lines are read by Nichelle Nichols in the 25th Anniversary game.

How well does it match the trope?
