Re: What episode is the most unreferenced?

Pretty sure ENT - "Twilight" has never been referenced.

I believe there is an oblique reference in Watching the Clock - Christopher has stated that he tried to reference every Trek episode involving time travel.

EDIT: Yup. Page 121.

It's reference in an off-handed manner by McCoy in The Rings of Time.

Ooh, I got one. TNG "Masks."

I'd be very surprised if that crapfest got a mention anywhere.

Ha, wrong! The D'Arsay are referenced in a STO mission. In there, you have to scan their graves and find out the were poikliothermic, i.e. amphibian. That's why they revere the sun so much.

Also, when I was a child, this was one of my favourite episodes.

Well damn, that is pretty oblique. I didn't realize that was a reference.

Hm. Was "Tuvix" ever referenced afterwards?

The word is poikilothermic, and it refers to an organism whose body temperature is variable (i.e. what's inaccurately called a "cold-blooded" creature in vernacular). Amphibians are poikilotherms, but so are fish, reptiles, many invertebrates, and even naked mole rats (the only known mammalian ones).

Well, at least in this instance my science officer told me the D'Arsay where both amphibian and poikliothermic. Where the Hranrarii poikliotherms as well, I wonder?

Probably some of those mediocre episodes buried in the middle of seasons of TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT. I was going to say Code of Honor, then I realized that Dark Mirror had the Mirror Ent-D sterilize one of their continents.

Nope, Indistinguishable from Magic's got that one covered, and then some.

I think at least one of the numbered DS9 novels referenced it. I know a lot of S1 episodes were referenced, but I can't be sure if Move Along Home was an exception.

Referenced in Rising Son, when Jake remembers his father being a bit iffy on the subject of the Wadi, which he didn't understand given that the Wadi weren't Dominion members.

PS: Here's hoping the political cold war between the Typhon Pact and the Khitomer Accords will be resolved with an epic Chula game played by each nation's representatives or leaders.
