What's the reference? If that's so, then BF would tie into the '80s continuity and should be added to the list in that thread.
McCoy's fearsome space pirate persona is named "Black Ire". It's probably more of an easter egg than a declaration that the books share a continuity, though.
Yeah, I semi-remembered that after I asked. I agree, it's not a continuity reference per se, just a gag allusion.

Come to think of it, don't Black Fire and Prime Directive both have the Enterprise crippled for months and refit? It's kind of hard to believe it happened twice.
