How the Decrease Deck-ers would know what Voyager seems like at warp is considerably questionable, contemplating the ship was lacking within the Delta Quadrant for many of their careers. Perhaps they visited one in every of Barclay’s holographic reconstructions?
An Antares-type ship from TOS
The traditional Starfleet wreckage on this episode incorporates a ship with the registry NCC-502. Within the TOS episode “Charlie X,” the ship Antares was retroactively given the registry quantity NCC-501.

Decrease Decks makes its second joke about the truth that most individuals on Starfleet ships most likely use waterless “sonic showers.” The sonic showers had been first glimpsed in Star Trek: The Movement Image, however we’ve nearly by no means seen anybody use them. As a result of water can apparently be replicated, we’ll by no means actually know why 24th Century starships nonetheless used the sonic sort. Both method, Dr. T’’ana has a degree, utilizing sound vibrations to get cheese out of fur seems like a drag.
Boimler has one thing in frequent with Jean-Luc Picard
When Fletcher and Boimler joke about their Academy days, we study that Nassicans tried to eat Boimler’s coronary heart at one level. This references the TNG episode “Tapestry,” by which Nassicans stabbed Jean-Luc Picard by way of the center, proper after he’d graduated from Starfleet Academy.
Tendi references the basic period of TOS when she says that among the many outdated Starfleet wreckage, she hopes to search out “ the unique communicators, you realize the clamshell design?” When Dax traveled again in time to the 23rd Century in “Trials and Tribble-ations,” she talked about an outdated tricorder having “basic, 23rd Century design.” Even in Star Trek, persons are followers of the design aesthetic of TOS.
