Re: What episode is the most unreferenced?

Nobody's mentioned whether "Tuvix" is later referenced. I wouldn't be surprised if it was, but I'm not aware of it happening.

Tuvok alludes to it in Orion's Hounds.

How about DS9 - "Move Along Home"?
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.
There were also Wadi on board the Even Odds.

Re: What episode is the most unreferenced?

Was TNG's "Transfigurations" (Season 3) ever referenced? I always thought the Zalkonians were somewhat interesting, but to my knowledge, they have never appeared in TrekLit.

Re: What episode is the most unreferenced?

How about "The Man Trap"? With the possible exception of Trelane's stuffed-and-mounted salt vampire (that was probably just a budgetary thing), the only thing I can think of that references it, whether on screen or in print, is my own student short story, Inteview with Dr. Ambrose Crater, or "The Salt Vampire Ate My Parents."

That's one I always kinda wanted to revisit.

Nancy Crater nee Bierce appears in flashbacks in A Choice of Catastrophes.

I'd be really surprised if there's a single unreferenced TOS episode. It's got to be a late-series VOY episode, if anything. "Live Fast and Prosper"?

I've referenced the Acamarians and/or the Gatherers in The Buried Age and Forgotten History. And Acamar III was mentioned in both Greater Than the Sum and Destiny as one of the first planets wiped out in the Borg invasion (though that reference originated with Dave, not me).

Genetically modified salt vampires, designated Species M-113, are featured in a zombie-like invasion of a Romulan mining colony in the Hfihar system, in Star Trek Online, since Season 8.

One of the endgame body armors in STO was originally going to be called Kellerun. Didn't happen, though.

Aside from that I can't think of any further reference to the Kelleruns, T'Lani or harvesters. Maybe Miles's coffee habits?

The Best of Both Worlds is never mentioned again. EVER.

In seriousness, my guess would be some one-off alien-of the week episode of Voyager. It's harder to reuse or namedrop a race in another series's novels when they're off in an entirely different portion of the galaxy.

Right, I hadn't thought of that. Random Thoughs and Concerning Flight spring to mind.
