I've seen at least a couple of 'Hot Network Questions' which, appear to be make oblique reference to Star Trek. Specifically:
- How are there so many species on the space station 'A long way from anywhere V'?
- Why are there no toilets on the starship 'Exciting Undertaking'?
Is there some unspoken rule to the effect of "the first rule of WorldBuilding is you do not talk about WorldBuilding (and also Star Trek)"?
Or have we all been transported into the distant future, where the Star Trek Wars have settled the matter once and for all?
Or maybe it's just one person's entertaining style of asking questions?
Is it forbidden to directly reference Star Trek? Would it be more fun for everybody if it was?
