In Area 51 on 5 July 1986, Jeffrey Carlson told Shannon O'Donnell that he found it curious that the technology taken from Pavel Chekov after he was captured aboard the USS Enterprise earlier that year was several generations less advanced than that taken from Quark's Treasure in July 1947. O'Donnell jokingly suggested that this was possibly due to a "bizarre time travel paradox" such as those featured in Back to the Future. (TOS novel: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1)
Unbeknownst to either Carlson or O'Donnell, this comment was entirely accurate as Quark's Treasure was from 2372 while Chekov was from 2286. (DS9 episode: "Little Green Men", TOS movie, novelization & comic adaptation: The Voyage Home)
