Most likely though of course not guaranteed reference for the title text is the recent stories out (about 2 days ago) saying that William Shatner regrets directing Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Quick example of one story here [1] --WJBodin3 (talk) 21:17, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

I would find the timing very suspicious at the very least. I think it's highly likely the news inspired this comic, especially in light of Star Trek being outright named - and specifically that instalment. NiceGuy1 (talk) 13:22, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

It is interesting that all the current frontiers seem somewhat equidistant from the "center" of the squarish figure, as if we have achieved the same level of knowledge/exploration in each category... Daiemos (talk) 15:18, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Each is on its own (unlabeled) axis, scaled to imply parity among the topics. See [2] 16:53, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
...finished exploring it by now (Title text)

If Randall means space and not the movie alone this would contradict the comic itself where space is still a big challenge. --Dgbrt (talk) 16:24, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

I was thinking that myself, he could be saying that star trek has been fully explored, which the could be a slight reference to the relatively hot topic about star trek discovery. Some trekkies lamenting the fact that they didn't want another prequel... If on the other hand it is a reference to space itself, randall could have left the contradiction in on purpose, as part of the joke. 18:02, 4 September 2018 (UTC) Sam
