Re: shared universe, crossovers and easter eggs

I can't deny that part of me quite enjoys the idea that Buffy is in the past of the Trek verse. But then Trek is referenced as a TV show so often on Buffy, it's awkward reconciling the situation. A shame, as for me, Maggie Walsh's cameo in The Eugenics Wars is a highlight of the books, and provides some good background on the character's relationship with the Initiative in Buffy S4.

Re: shared universe, crossovers and easter eggs

It just occurred to me that if Sam Beckett did leap into Jonathan Archer that Al would see a lot of future tech in his role as observer. That would undoubtedly have an effect on the timeline.

I'm sure he tries hard with plot and character and drama, but when it comes to science and worldbuilding, he clearly couldn't be bothered.
Agreed. When you go back and rewatch it, it does not stand the test of time. The science is just awful.
The science in Quantum Leap may be dodgy, but the show itself was brilliant. They don't make TV like that anymore.

Back to crossovers -- didn't anybody mention "Stargate: SG1?" I remember when Jack said -- referencing naming their new starship -- that "they didn't go for it." Sam said "for what?"

Jack said, "they wouldn't let me name it Enterprise."

(I probably misquoted a bit.)
There were lots of other Trek references when they went back in time to the 60s, and Jack told the cops his name was James T Kirk. Or when he asked if the fighter had phasers.

And in 200 there was a parody of a bridge scene (an episode that also featured a brilliant Farscape parody).
