There was a Dr. Who reference?
There was some initial confusion as to the device "Kirk" was holding in the first couple of strips. Some suspected it was the Doctor's sonic screwdriver. As a result a line or two was included about temporal distortions. However, NCC-1701 based the device upon the fountain pen like "servo" used by Gary Seven from "Assignment: Earth". Fortunately, since Gary Seven supposedly beamed not only across the galaxy, but also through time, the lines about temporal distortions was still within context.

Me, shoot, I'd have had a ball tossing in some "cross-over" with the famed BBC series (as I'm a fan of both), but just in the off chance some might not be too thrilled, I resisted the temptation.

Sincerely,

Bill
