So my wife and I are watching season 1 on the DVR (SyFy is playing them at 3AM EST as a binge refresher before season 2) and in episode 10 one of the characters says something that totally surprises me. She says that the name of her group of magicians (hedge witches?) is called "Free Trader Beowulf". I do a double take, rewind it a minute, and play it again. Sure enough, this group is calling itself "Free Trader Beowulf", after the quintessential Traveller starship.

While I think the nod is cool, I can't for the life of me think of why the writers would put a sci-fi rpg shout-out into the script of an urban fantasy that's basically Harry Potter--the Grad School Years.
