5: Command Training Program
While working to cure Lt. Stamets of his spore-induced coma during “The Wolf Inside,” Cadet Tilly asks First Officer Saru if he will recommend Tilly for the Command Training Program.
A very similar program, the Starfleet Academy Command School, was referenced by Captain Janeway in the Voyager episode “Parallax,” and Deanna Troi took a similar educational path in “Thine Own Self,” studying for, and finally passing, the Bridge Officer’s Test to achieve a command status aboard the Enterprise-D.

Early in the episode, while trying to determine where the USS Discovery has jumped to, the crew discuss Federation fleet activity around Organia.
Ten years after the events of this episode, Organia will be hotly contested between the Federation and the Klingon Empire as part of the Star Trek: The Original Series episode “Errand of Mercy” when growing tensions between the two powers threaten to reignite into war.
They finally name dropped Archer in Star Trek: Discovery!
😃He’s one of Starfleet’s most decorated captains as of 2256.
From Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Episode 5 “Choose Your Pain”

4. Corvan II
The Corvan star system, which appears on the Star Trek: Star Charts as near the Federation/Klingon border is home to the Corvan gilvo, which by the 24th century has become an endangered species.
The creature appears in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “New Ground.” Perhaps the reason the Corvan gilvo is endangered is related to the dilithium mining on the planet, or perhaps a consequence of the Klingon bombardment?
