    Very minor spoilers here. Thought I'd better tag it anyway.

    So we watched "Remembrance" last night.

    I noticed that the fashion of the time appears to have the lapels of suit coats up around the neck. I also noticed that they are referring to androids as "synthetics," which as far as I can recall has never been done in Star Trek before.

    However, where I have seen both of those things before is in the movie "Aliens."

    Coincidence?

    Unfortunately, he was killed by Kylo Ren in a galaxy far, far away.

    Yes.

    It actually means it takes place in the Fallout universe.

    If a Starfleet Marine starts whining about "game over, man" then I might entertain a connection to Aliens.

    The Romulan weapons looked Gigeresque, actually
