The Star Trek name tag seems to have a ‘J’ on it. Is this some tribute to Jonathan Frakes who played Riker aka Number One in the Star Trek: Next Generation series. The actor is also directing episodes 3 & 4. On closer inspection with a clearer version of the poster we can see it is more like ‘No. 1’. We have updated the image.
