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."
There was a Salt Vampire among the aliens in the Rura Penthe deleted scenes in Star Trek. Pic HERE.

Re: What episode is the most unreferenced?

I've got the ultimate contender!
VOY: Living Witness

Because it is set in the 31st century and beyond on a world without further contact with the Federation, nobody is going to revisit it in our current timeline.

The only references I could think would be sth. like a Kyrian Starfleet officer from the far future in a DTI incident or, more likely, Warship Voyager becoming playable in STO. Unless there's another short story about it...

^Sorry, but there's a terrific Strange New Worlds IV story, "Personal Log" by Kevin Killiany, that's a direct sequel to "Living Witness" told from the backup EMH's POV.

I was 'afraid' Strange New Worlds would strike again. There has to be some unreferenced episode, after all.

It introduced Kathryn's Gothic holonovel, I'm not sure whether that counts. But as posted above, VOY episodes are most likely, in general.

It's incredible, I can't think of a single episode that hasn't been referenced somewhere in TrekLit.

Has there been any reference to the episode "Paradise" from DS9? If there is, I bet it's in Strange New Worlds or something.

In Keith R.A. DeCandido's Enterprises of Great Pitch and Moment, Sisko tells Picard about Alixus trying to destroy the runabout.

Re: What episode is the most unreferenced?

Actually, I just thought of another "Man Trap" reference: back in the 1970s, there were a number of whimsically illustrated Star Trek "NO SMOKING" signs in (I believe) the Lincoln Enterprises catalog. One of them was "Smokers will be introduced to the Salt Vampire." (Another one, with a picture of NOMAD zapping somebody, declared that "Smokers will be sterilized.")

So curious - has TNG's 'Transfigurations' ever been mentioned to anyone's knowledge?

Memory Beta has Zalkonians listed in the "species" section of Q-Space's reference sections.
