In this film a reference is made to the scene Star Trek: The Trouble with Tribbles (1967): When McCoy comments to Kirk that he “took this from Chekov’s locker” (alluding to the container of liquor), Kirk reacts to the impact “I would have pegged Chekov as a vodka man.”, as both are amazed by the sort of liquor that Chekov drinks. This is affirmed as Scotch in the last party scene, when Chekov comments that “It was designed by a little old woman in Russia”. In the first scene, Chekov and Scotty sit in the Space Station K-7 bar, as Scotty states that Chekov “get off that drain abstain from food” and have Scotch rather, since it was “a drink for a man”. Chekov answers that “it was imagined by a little old woman from Leningrad”
