Heck, I have references liberally sprinkled throughout my own WIP--Star Wars, Babylon 5 (especially), a little bit of Star Trek, Dune, a few others. But those were included for my own amusement, and to see if anyone would notice them (which, thus far, I have been disappointed on the majority), but I didn't actively steal anything: I aknowledged that I got the initial idea for the story from a Star Trek DS9 episode called "Distant Voices" which I then took the concept from and expanded it in my own direction, and the title is a direct homage to a Babylon 5 episode which is a favorite of mine, but I freely aknowledge that I put those in there--mostly for my own amusement, and the fact that my imagination insisted.

But trying to pass off someone else's work as their own isn't a tribute--it's theft, nothing more, nothing less.
