Didja Notice?

 

On page 4, since Sulu has locked them out of the bridge and the turbolifts, Kirk tells Spock his plan to use the Jefferies tubes to climb to the bridge. Jefferies tubes are small service access tunnels on Starfleet ships and space stations; they are named for Matt Jefferies, production designer of the original Star Trek TV series.

 

This issue reveals that Keenser's rank is lieutenant.

 

Tholian Commander Loskene is the same commander who intercepted the Enterprise in the original series TV episode "The Tholian Web".
