Something else I personally think would be cool is if there were an exchange in a new series that would go something like this:

"They're like the Furies, Captain? I don't see how they're similar to the figures from Greek myth."-a Lieutenant

"No. I'm talking about a group of aliens that first invaded back in Captain Kirk's time and later during Captain Picard's time. I'm surprised you've never heard of them before."-the Captain
No. That's horrible. It's an inorganic and awkward exposition dump. That is not how you do references.
