Films mentioned Edit

The following background note is quite conclusive.

Of all the films mentioned on Star Trek that exist in the real world, The Exorcist was the one most recently released.

I'm not able to disprove the statement, so I left it in the article, but I thought it should be brought to the communities' attention to verify it's accuracy. — Vince47 09:40, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

The statement is most likely accurate. Very few movies have been shown on screen and most of those were very old ones (1940s-1960s type). Though the statement is really a poor excuse for a background note. — Morder (talk) 09:58, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

That does seem to be the case. The Andromeda Strain, which came out in 1971 was close, although Trip may have been referring to the novel. In any case someone may run across a reference which challenges this, someday.— Vince47 10:54, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Does E.T. count? I'd also double-check for background stuff from future's end, it's chock-full of pop culture background stuff (not just in the seti chick's office), lots of which has not been documented yet. -- Capricorn 12:32, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
It wasn't actually "mentioned", just referenced. — Morder (talk) 12:33, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

It's funny that Capricorn asked about Future's End. One of the movie posters for Vampire Vixens appears to have been made in 2003, but it's not really MA appropriate and obviously not what Rain's poster was for as that episode came out in 1996, and i think that poster was for a made up film anyway. :)— Vince47 12:45, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

I've got another question on this. While the note may be accurate, is it anything but trivial? Is there really notability to this? --OuroborosCobra talk 00:17, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
I don't think so. It's pretty close to a nitpick, if it isn't one.--31dot 00:20, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
I don't see it as a nitpick but it is worthless as I noted above... :) — Morder (talk) 00:38, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
