makes an hilarious reference to the pre-Arnold-era Black Fire
. And Chidren of Kings
is heavily influenced by Vulcan's Glory
and a minor thing from Spock's World
I'm currently reading the TMP novelization, and am gussing that, being penned by GR himself, it was immune to the ban on references. The entire Lost Years
saga ties into it, using some of GR's original characters like Lori Ciana. More recently, Christopher
's post-TMP novels have used stuff from GR's TMP novelization, albeit differently to how TLY did.
