Space... The final frontier...

You've got to admit that the folks at Ascaron are fans of many, many global cultural icons - Star Wars, Harry Potter, Groucho Marx, and so forth. So it wouldn't be too surprising to find a Star Trek reference somewhere in the game as well.

In the eastern side of Enturag, just east of a small lake in the city, there sits a statue dedicated to Worf Thornclaw.

The caption reads: He wanted to be a singer but his father had other ideas. That way, he still had many fans and he was able to kill his critics without getting into trouble.

The name Worf also belongs to everyone's favorite cranky Klingon Lieutenant from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space 9.

I always suspected the Orcs had some Klingon inspiration behind them - and here's the proof.

More Klingons on the Starboard Bow

Fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation and it's various spinoffs will also be familiar with Gauron - the Klingon that Worf helped become the leader of the Klingon High Council after the only other challenger for the position killed Worf's girlfriend and consquently got killed by Worf.

It would seem he's got a statue of his own - of sorts:

Somehow, I don't recall Gauron being confused exactly...


In the cemetary east of Blade Fields, there is a grave marker that reads:

  • Last Words: "Why am I the only one wearing a red shirt?"

As any diehard Star Trek fan can attest, in the original series featuring Captain Kirk and company, if you were on an away mission and you were wearing a red shirt, odds were fairly excellent that you would be dead by the end of the episode. Even Scotty, the chief engineer had a few bouts with death while wearing a red shirt.

In the Orcish Byway cemetery, there's a gravestone that reads:

  • Viking rule of Acquisition 1: Remember where you beached the long ship.

Clearly a reference to the Ferengi Rules of Acqusition from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

It's a double dipper Easter Egg as well. Captain Kirk has a line in The Voyage Home (The Save the Whales movie) where he says "Remember where we parked..." as they walk off of the Klingon ship in Golden Gate Park.

Cities On The Edge Of Forever

In Episode 28 of Season 1 in the original 1960s series Star Trek, The City On The Edge Of Forever aired. In the episode is a portal named The Guardian Of Forever and it displays different images of places throughout time and if one enters therein, one will appear in that particular place and era. The portals in Sacred 2 also flash images of locations, just as the portal in the aforementioned episode.

The similarity is, as Mr. Spock might say, "Fascinating!":
