Okay, I don’t know how I missed/forgot the Star Trek references the first (2nd, 3rd, ?) time(s) I read this series, but I have found another one. I’m reading book four, Holy Smokes, and Aisling, Jim, Rene, and her Uncle Damian have just traveled by portal to Tibet. The company they used is Budget Teleporters. I’m just throwing that out there. Anyway, the Star Trek reference:
“I feel like I’ve just participated in a Star Trek episode,” Uncle Damian said.
“Ow! Star Trek? You mean one of the episodes when the Enterprise was being attacked, and everyone was shaken off their seats?”
“No,” Uncle Damian answered my question, . . . “I’m talking about how one of the characters always protested having his atoms beamed around the universe.”
And just in case you don’t know, that character would be none other than Leonard “Bones” McCoy, MD! My all-time favorite Star Trek character who was played by DeForest Kelley, a native of Georgia – both the actor and character. And yes, I’m from Georgia.
