Both of which originated in the novels and were adopted by the movies.

I also approve of references from STV, Voyager, Nemesis and Insurrection and even the Alternative Factor*....

*Any of you authors ever tried to tackle that one?
There's one Strange New Worlds story that brings back Lazarus -- in fact, the very last story in the very last volume, "Reborn" by Jeremy Yoder. And there must've been some reference to the episode in the Crucible trilogy, since it referenced every episode. Beyond that, though, I don't think it's been touched, which is fine with me. As I've said before, the episode contradicts canon, depicting dilithium and antimatter differently than every other episode does, as well as being inconsistent and incoherent within itself. So I treat the whole thing as apocryphal. I did, however, incorporate elements of the engineering set seen in the episode into my description of the engineering section in Forgotten History, though just in passing.
