Earth Cargo Service vessels were first established in "Broken Bow" (ENT).

Vulcans and the planet Vulcan were first established in "The Cage" (TOS) in the person of Spock, though neither a full-blooded Vulcan nor the planet were seen until "Amok Time."

The Cor Caroli system is bsaed on a real star in the constellation Canes Venatici. That is has inhabited worlds in it was established in "Allegiance" (TNG). That it is a Vulcan colony was established in "Revelations" by Keith R.A. DeCandido (NF: No Limits).

That Vulcan has a sister planet is based on an attempt to reconcile dialogue in "The Man Trap" (TOS), where Spock unequivocably states the Vulcan has no moon, with images in "Yesteryear" (TAS) and The Motion Picture that show a moon in Vulcan's sky. The name T'Khut (sometimes spelled T'Kuht) comes from fan writer/artist Gordon Carleton, and the name was used in TOS: The Vulcan Academy Murders by Jean Lorrah and TOS: Spock's World by Diane Duane, among other places. (It's also possible that the Vulcanis Lunar Colony mentioned in "Unimatrix Zero" (VOY) is located on T'Khut.)

Page 5:

At the end of "Friday's Child," the son of the assassinated teer of the Ten Tribes, Leonard James Akaar, was established as the new teer, with his mother, Eleen, serving as his regent. However, as established in DS9: Mission: Gamma: Twilight by David R. George III and ST: The Lost Era: The Sundered by Michael A. Martin & Andy Mangels, at age five, Akaar was forced into exile. He later joined Starfleet, which is the source of the Capellans' antipathy toward Starfleet.

Page 7:

That 23rd-century computers were based on duotronics was established in "The Ultimate Computer" (TOS).

Page 8:

As established in "Friday's Child," Akaar was named after Dr. Leonard McCoy, who delivered him. (His middle name, James, was after Captain James T. Kirk, who helped keep Eleen alive long enough to give birth.)

Page 9:

The Zakdorn were first seen in "Peak Performance" (TNG) in the person of Sirna Kolrami.

Page 18:

Chapter 2

Page 21:

This is the first appearance of Professor Sonek Pran. As hinted at in the novel's acknowledgments, the physical, philosophical, and conversational template for the character is the folk singer Arlo Guthrie, who has long been one of the author's heroes (and who is also a Star Trek fan).

The events described by Pran during his lecture in this chapter occurred in "Babel One" (ENT), "United" (ENT), and "The Aenar" (ENT).

Andorians and Tellarites were both first seen in "Journey to Babel."

Page 22:

Kriosians were first seen in "The Perfect Mate" (TNG). Trills were first seen in "The Host" (TNG). Trills had ridged foreheads in "The Host," but later on, the same makeup design used on Kriosians would be used for Trills on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (and all their subsequent appearances), hence Pran's confusion as to which species the student in question belongs to. (An explanation for the change was offered in TOS: Excelsior: Forged in Fire by Andy Mangels & Michael A. Martin.)

Pran's "like a sehlat that could speak: very rare," followed by "a sehlat that speaks Old High Bajoran: even rarer," is a tribute to a similar set of lines uttered by Samuel Johnson (played by Robbie Coltrane) in an episode of Blackadder the Third, one of the author's favorite TV programs.

That the Romulan War occurred prior to the founding of the Federation is speculation, based on the founding of the Federation in 2161 as established in "The Drumhead" (TNG), the dating of the Romulan War from dialogue in "Balance of Terror" (TOS), and the references in "Balance of Terror" to the Romulan War being fought by Earth (rather than the Federation). The details of the war are chronicled in ENT: Kobayashi Maru by Andy Mangels & Michael A. Martin and ENT: The Romulan War by Michael A. Martin.

Page 23:

The Coalition of Planets was first mentioned in "Demons" (ENT), where the initial negotiations for the formation of the Coalition -- a precursor to the United Federation of Planets -- occurred. A dramatization of the final treaty signing that formed the Coalition was seen in "These are the Voyages..." (ENT).

Caitians were first seen in "The Survivor" (TAS) in the person of Lieutenant M'Ress.

The Dominion War commenced in "Call to Arms" (DS9). The Romulans allied with the Federation and Klingon Empire against the Dominion in "In the Pale Moonlight" (DS9). The explosion of Praxis and subsequent Federation-Klingon alliance was seen in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

The Klingon Empire was first seen in "Errand of Mercy" (TOS) as an enemy of the Federation.

The original meaning of "quadroon" was someone who was one-quarter black and three-quarters white. With the massive interbreeding among alien species seen on Star Trek, it is the author's contention that the term would have changed meaning to refer to someone with a background including four different species, and that the term would have fallen out of common usage once such people became more common. (Of course, it would've been better if the author had spelled that out in the text...)

Page 24:

Bajorans were first seen in "Ensign Ro" (TNG). Betazoids were first seen in "Encounter at Farpoint" in the person of Deanna Troi, though we didn't see a full-blood Betazoid until "Haven" (TNG).

In "A Matter of Honor" (TNG), it was established that Benzite reproduction involves something called a "geo-structure," and that people from the same geo-structure look alike.
