I still want a Jurassic Park reference.There has only been 2, that I am aware of. one that I can't remember off the top of my head, and Insect in Amber (you know that's a reference.) But there is nothing large, no NPC's, nothing else.And we need more Star Trek references. Having two dozen NPC's, several quests, several objects, and Micheal Dorn (Worf) doing character voices is not enuf!And did you know there is exactly one Sailor Moon reference, which very few people get? http://www.wowhead.com/npc=24840Sailor Vines, drop the rest of the name, and you get Sailor V.

With all due respect, it's a bit of a stretch to call that a Sailor Moon reference. If the character had long blonde hair, maybe, or if she was wearing something closer to what the anime character wears, then I'd agree with you. But I think it's just a sailor whose name happens to start with V.

Along with NPC's such as Sailor Picardo (reference to Robert Picardo, Voyager's EMH) and Sailor Phillips (reference to Ethan Phillips, Neelix) I don't think it's too much of a stretch considering they couldn't just name the NPC "Sailor V" (notice I am saying it's a reference to Sailor V, which was a semi-fictional character played by Sailor Venus) and considering the character is a sailor, it would be out of place to put her in a dress. I would be willing to bet it's a reference. The lack of blonde hair does seem to prove it's not.If someone else knows an actress who's last name is Vines, I would be open to suggestions.

And now that I think about it, if you pronounce the name different, pronouncing it as two syllables instead of one, "Vi-nes", it sounds like it.It could be, it could not be. I guess we will only know if Blizzard says something.
