I didn't think you could do that

I noticed that a certain well-known Federation heavy cruiser was namechecked in John Sickel's excellent story in CL43.

Has an equally well-known motion-picture company had a change of mind?

No there seems to be a clause for its use if its omission would be glaring obvious. Also notice it was mentioned by others relating to a specific event.

What that means is it better be a kicking story set during a specific plot point and then no part of the story can takes place aboard it or involves it crew.

Right. We can mention the enterprise but not use it, and mention it when it's omission would be glaring, such as a ship name list, or a story that takes place on the same day as a trek episode.

The fact the NCC-1701 was mentioned added much to the story in CL43 and even enhanced the classic episode.

Makes more sense that "Outposts 2, 3, and 4 are gone" was the due to the efforts of other Romulan ships.

Nice touch.
