TRIVIA

  • E.C.S (Earth Cargo Service) 'North Star' is mentioned in the STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE episode 'Fortunate Son' as having suffered a disaster which left few survivors. So either this is the same unlucky cargo ship, or it has been re-commissioned.

  • As per their assignment patches, Fletcher and O'Dell are from 'NX-03 Challenger'.

  • The destruction of Rag & Bone Man's ship E.C.S Poseidon as a result of an unprovoked attack is reference to the mysterious destruction of an Earth freighter, the Ticonderoga, in the STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE episode 'The Aenar', which is revealed on screen to be at the hands of the Romulans who are attempting to destabilize Earth's alliances.  

  • Amongst the 'things' Rag & Bone Man has collected are; Starfleet-issue thermal blanket, emergency oxygen respirator, multiple ration packs, an engineering tool-kit, a hand scanner, an ODN scanner, a PADD stylus, a stainless steel coffee cup, a communicator, EM-33 pistol, an iso modulator and Fletcher's phase pistol/holster.
