We’ve… traveled back in time to save an ancient species from… total annihilation. So far… no… signs of aquatic life, but I’m going to find it. If I have to tear this universe another black hole, I’m going to find it. I’ve… GOT TO, MISTER!”

Raj says he talked with Alice Krige’s gynecologist, referring to Alice as “The Borg Queen From First Contact.” Wil gives Sheldon an autographed still-in-package Wesley action figure, but Brent Spiner promptly opens it upon seeing it. Brent then offered Sheldon a autographed still-in-package Data action figure to make up for it but Sheldon declines and declares Brent his new mortal enemy.

“The Weekend Vortex”
Amy mistakenly refers to the Star Wars video game the guys are playing as a Star Trek video game. Penny corrects her, saying the guys don’t like when the two franchises are mistaken for one another, and even suggesting there is no difference between the two.
“The Transporter Malfunction”
Penny buys Sheldon and Leonard mint-in-box 1975 Star Trek transporter toys. However they refuse to play with it, as it would lose its value. That night Sheldon dreams his 1975 Mr. Spock action figure (voiced by Leonard Nimoy) declares it illogical to own a toy that he doesn’t play with. After Sheldon accidentaly breaks his toy (and replaces it with Leonard’s) he later has a nightmare about being chastised by Mr. Spock about his actions and being attacked by a Gorn.
“The Hawking Excitation”
Howard says “no” in Klingonese when telling Sheldon that he wouldn’t introduce him to Stephen Hawking.

“The Launch Acceleration”
Howard tells Raj “You watch Star Trek, I live it” when discussing Howard’s aborted mission to the International Space Station. Leonard and Sheldon again play three-dimensional chess. Later Leonard comes home to find Sheldon and Amy playing “Star Trek doctor” with Sheldon uncomfortably lying on the couch while Amy, dressed in a Sciences division blue TOS women’s uniform, pretend-scans him with a toy Medical tricorder.
“The Countdown Reflection”
Pasha Lychnikoff starts a multi-episode arc as a cosmonaut on board the International Space Station with Howard, first going up in a Soyuz rocket. Despite his initial offer to do so being soundly rejected, Sheldon performs part of Howard and Bernadette’s wedding in Klingonese and says”and the Klingon High Council” when pronouncing them man and wife.When the rocket is launched, Sheldon quote the title sequence from the original series saying “Boldly go, Howard Wolowitz”.
“Children of the Gods”
Arriving on Abydos, Major Ferretti gives Daniel Jackson a Vulcan hand salute.
This season 2 episode has Jack O’Neill identifying himself as “Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise” when captured by the US Air Force, after traveling back in time.
When asked if he could “beam” Colonel O’Neill and Teal’c out from the X-301, Jacob Carter retorts, “What am I, Scotty?”
In the background of a shot, a tourist can be seen posing for a photograph while performing the Vulcan hand salute.
Cadet Hailey refers to zat’nik’tels as “those phaser things”.
When Tanner and the others beam up to their ship at the end of the episode, the beam pattern and color is the same as that of the transporter beam from Star Trek: The Original Series.
“The Other Guys”
Doctor Simon Coombs, is an avid Trekkie.
Dialog in the episode includes:
Felger: “Bite me, Coombs! At least my heroes exist! If this was a Trekconvention, you’d be all dressed up like a Klingon!”
Coombs: “Vulcan, Felger, Vulcan! And I don’t know how you can call yourself a scientist and not worship at the alter of Roddenberry!”
Coombs: “Oh, come on, Felger. We might as well be wearing red shirts!”
There was also a bat’leth visible above Lord Khonsu’s throne.
This season 6 episode features an exchange between Carter and O’Neill
about the name of the first Earth spaceship:
O’Neill: “They didn’t go for it.”
Carter: “They didn’t approve the mission?”
O’Neill: “Well no, they did that. Once they knew the stakes and the whole fate of the universe stuff, both the President and Hammond realized we had no choice. They wish us luck, God speed and all those things he says when he thinks we’re gonna die.”
Carter: “So what didn’t they go for?”
O’Neill: “The name I suggested.”
Carter: “For the ship?”
Carter: “Ah, sir… we can’t call it the Enterprise.”
O’Neill: “Why not?”
When Dr. Felger constructs a supposedly revolutionary weapon for use against the Goa’uld, Colonel O’Neill asks, “Phaser?” Felger’s assistant, Chole, replies, “More like a photon torpedo.”
“Evolution Part I”
When Colonel O’Neill and company are taken prisoner by a Goa’uld, a Jaffa approaches them. O’Neill says, “Greetings,” and makes a half-hearted Vulcan salute.
After a Jaffa makes it appear that Colonel Mitchell has died and come back to life, the Colonel says, “Well done, Bones.”
The 200th episode of Stargate SG-1 was planned as an homage to its many fans. It had many different references to other shows, and included one to Star Trek: The Original Series.
While pitching movie ideas to the crew of SG-1, Martin Lloyd – the person from the studio – comes up with a brilliant idea. He begins to describe it and the scene shifts to the bridge of a Daedalus-class ship (as shown in the Stargate Universe). Mitchell is wearing command division red while acting like Kirk. Carter is shown wearing an earpiece like Uhura’s. Teal’c is shown acting like Worf at a security station. Daniel is shown looking into a science monitor like Spock often did (and acting like McCoy). The episode even shows a Scottish engineer in the ship’s engine room. Back in reality, Daniel spots the ripoff.
In the final moments of this episode, the main characters of Teal’c, Vala, Carter, and Mitchell are seen playing poker and the episode ends with General Landry joining in the game. This is very similar to the series finale of Star Trek: The Next Generation, when Picard joins in on the senior staff poker game.
In a few episodes, Dr. Carson Beckett objects to physical labor by starting a sentence “I’m a doctor, not a…” similar to Dr. McCoy. In one episode, John Sheppard mentions Dr. McCoy, then explains, “That’s the person Dr. Becket plays in real life,” after realizing that residents of another galaxy didn’t understand the reference.
The team finds an ancient ship where Colonel Sheppard tells Dr McKay that they cannot call the ship the Enterprise. They instead call it the Orion, at Sheppard’s insistence.
Dr. Carson Beckett says to Sheppard, “I hear you got yourself a cling-on.”
Rodney McKay often describes John Sheppard as being similar to Captain James T. Kirk; on a planet the team visits, Shepard is able to score a romantic scene with a beautiful alien woman.
A member of the Atlantis crew talks with a co-worker and complains about the fact that Rodney McKay never remembers his name, or uses a false name for him. He said that when McKay ever does it again, he will call him “McCoy” instead of “McKay”.
Upon being suggested that Eli should tell his mother the truth, he says she can barely follow an episode of Star Trek.
Upon encountering a planet that’s not in Destiny’s database, and later revealed to be created artificially, Eli references the Genesis Device
When Camile Wray complains that there aren’t enough seats on Destiny’s bridge, Colonel Young offers her his seat with all of the ship’s controls on it. She refuses, saying it’s his chair. He says “What am I, Captain Kirk? Sit in the chair.”
Family Guy is an animated show run on the Fox network, created by Seth MacFarlane. Because MacFarlane is a huge fan of Star Trek, this series often parodies the franchise, and Seth himself has appeared as an extra in Star Trek: Enterprise.
“A Very Special Family Guy Freakin’ Christmas”
Stewie is in a Christmas play and says that he is playing the part of Jesus Christ, portrayed by actor Jeffrey Hunter in King of Kings. He then explains that Jeffrey Hunter was replaced by William Shatner on Star Trek for those who are unfamiliar with Jeffrey Hunter. He then exclaims that “Hunter was good enough to die for our sins but not quite up to the task of seducing green women” This, line, a reference to Hunter’s portrayal of the Enterprise’s Captain Christopher Pike in the first Star Trek pilot “The Cage”, is at odds with the scene in the episode showing Pike’s fantasy of Vina as just such a woman. However it more likely refers to the fact that Hunter turned down any further involvement with Star Trek after the pilot.
“I Never Met the Dead Man”
“Captain’s log, Stardate 8169.7. The Enterprise has just discovered a strange new planet in the Gamma Faloppia star system. Mr. Sulu, ahead warp 9.”
Peter Griffin is watching Star Trek: The Original Series, which featured an overly-excited James T. Kirk, whose exaggerated mannerisms ended with his pants ripping to reveal “Captain’s Log” written on his underwear. When Peter’s daughter, Meg, asked him to teach her how to drive, Peter told his daughter that he loved her, but he also loved Star Trek – “and in all fairness, Star Trek came first.” The family pet, a highly-intelligent, talking dog named Brian, then suggested that Peter may not be the best person to teach Meg how to drive, to which Peter proclaims that he would be the perfect teacher as he doesn’t miss anything. He then makes the new observation, “Holy crap! Uhura’s black?”
Later, Peter watches another Star Trek episode. Lampooning the redshirts,
Kirk forms a landing party: Kirk: “All right, men. This is a dangerous mission. And it’s likely one of us will be killed. The landing party will consist of myself, Mr.
Spock, Dr. McCoy, and Ensign Ricky.”
Ricky: “Ah, crap.”At the end of the episode, Meg, who still has trouble driving, accidentally runs over the actor William Shatner, with whom Peter had become friends; Shatner’s last words, just before dying, are “Beam me up… God!” A crowd forms around the body, and out of the crowd Ensign
Ricky proclaims, “I did not see that coming.”
“The Kiss Seen Around the World”
Neil Goldman shows his class a video tape of the TOS: episode “Arena”, where he points out during the fight between Kirk and the Gorn when its William Shatner, and when its his stunt double, Fred Lubens. At the end of the presentation, Neil explains that because of Kirk’s rough-and-tumble style of command, he is clearly superior to Jean-Luc Picard, to which after thanking Neil for “that incredibly irrelevant presentation,” the teacher, Mr. Berler says that Picard is the superior officer.
Majel Barrett supplies the computer voice of Stewie Griffin’s Fantastic Voyage-esque craft. The episode also featured the voice of Wallace Shawn as Stewie’s yet-to-be born brother, Bertrum. The episode also has Stewie saying the line, “Fire phasers!” before blue laser beams, reportedly the aforementioned Star Trek style weapons, are seen firing from his craft.
“Peter, Peter, Caviar Eater”
Peter moves the family to a mansion Lois inherited in Newport, Rhode Island, where Stewie calls upon two servants to fight to the death. As they fight, music from TOS: “Amok Time” plays in the background.
“When You Wish Upon a Weinstein”
“When You Wish Upon a Weinstein”, an episode of Family Guy originally unaired on the Fox network due to its perceived controversial content, had William Shatner (voice of Seth McFarlane) acting in the play “Fiddler on the Roof”. He was using Kirk’s mannerisms, which were again exaggerated. After delivering a hasty line of dialog, he pauses and screams out
“Khan!”, just as Kirk did in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. The scream is then heard a second time, outside the theater.
“Peter’s Got Woods”
Yet another episode, “Peter’s Got Woods”, guest-starred Michael Dorn, Jonathan Frakes and Patrick Stewart reprising their roles as Worf, William T. Riker and Jean-Luc Picard, respectively. In their scene, after Peter says of James Woods’ strange behavior, “Boy, I haven’t been this creeped out since I saw that episode of Star Trek”, Picard leans over to Riker and asks him if he would join in a laugh if Picard said that Worf’s forehead looks like a fanny. Riker responds that he will, so Picard says it very loudly, eliciting a laugh from the entire bridge crew (even Data, who shouldn’t be laughing). Worf gets angry and tells Picard to “suck his ridges” which Picard responds with “Oh, get a sense of humor, Rocky Dennis” and the scene ends.
“Stewie Loves Lois”
After Peter sues his doctor for believing he was molested by him (when he was, in fact, giving him a prostate exam), no other doctor will see Peter. With no one else to turn to, Peter consults Dr. McCoy for a prostate exam. The episode also features Sulu saying “Hello” seductively to various men that walk by, a prediction of George Takei’s coming out of the closet.
The end credits list Alexander Siddig as having a guest appearance. It’s assumed he voiced one of the London Silly Nannies. However, because the main Silly Nanny was played by Seth MacFarlane it must be assumed Siddig was the voice of one of the background Nannies (possibly during the musical number) This makes his appearance the briefest and hardest to identify guest spot by a Star Trek regular.
“Road to Rupert”
In this episode, Brian accidentally sells Stewie’s teddy bear, Rupert, at a yard sale. Stewie fears that Rupert may have died and fears having to attend the bear’s funeral. The scene then cuts to a parody of Spock’s funeral service at the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, with Stewie in the place of Kirk, Brian in place of Scotty (dressed in traditional Scottish clothing rather than a Starfleet uniform), and Rupert in place of Spock’s photon torpedo casket. Also present are caricatures of McCoy, Uhura, Chekov, Saavik, and David Marcus. Stewie proclaims that “Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most… Human” (mirroring Kirk’s eulogy). As Rupert is placed into the photon torpedo launcher, Brian begins playing “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes. The next shot has the Enterprise launching Rupert into space and into the orbit of the Genesis Planet as the sun rises over the planet, just like in Star Trek II.
In this episode, Peter causes Quagmire to lose his job as a commercial airline pilot and helps his friend find a new job. Quagmire goes through a series of jobs, including a stint on the starship Enterprise. While he really enjoyed it, Quagmire was apparently let go from this job after walking up to Kirk and asking to be introduced to “that black chick” seated at the back of the bridge.
“Stewie Kills Lois”
At the end of the episode, Lois’ arrival in the courthouse is underscored by the climactic music from TNG: “The Best of Both Worlds”; this is followed by a ‘to be continued…’ and end credits sequence in the Next Generation style. This was a deliberate homage on the part of Ron Jones, who scored both episodes.
“Not All Dogs Go to Heaven”
This episode begins with the Griffins at the annual Star Trek convention in Quahog where the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation host a Q&A session. Stewie doesn’t get a chance to ask them any Trek-related questions because other Trekkies kept asking non-Trek-related questions, so he builds a transporter, using blueprints he gets at the convention, and beams them into his room. As a warning, Stewie shoots and kills Denise Crosby with a Klingon disruptor (in reference to Crosby’s character Tasha Yar being killed off in the season one episode “Skin of Evil”) and forces the cast to spend the day with him. In the end, the whole experience is exhausting for Stewie, who beams the cast away after calling them “the most insufferable group of jackasses [he had] ever had the misfortune of spending an extended period of time with” and saying they ruined Star Trek: The Next Generation for him. The cast of ST: TNG had provided their actual voices for this episode and appeared together for the first time since Star Trek Nemesis.
“We Love You, Conrad”
In this episode, Brian and Lauren Conrad parody the scene between James T. Kirk and Carol Marcus in the Genesis cave from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
“Something, Something, Something, Dark Side”
In this spoof of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader (Stewie) is seen smashing a mailbox labeled “Mr. Nimoy” from the window of his Star Destroyer. Later in the episode, Darth Vader (Stewie) has called a “bounty hunter meeting” where there is a lizard (Bossk) to which Vader says “Lizard guy, who I think I saw get into a fight with Captain Kirk,” referencing the TOS episode “Arena”.
“Big Man On Hippocampus”
In this episode, the Griffins audition for and get to go on Family Feud. One of the Questions during the game was “Name something you’d like to receive as a gift”. While the family went with money, Peter went with “… the flute that Captain Picard played, first in his imagination and then in real life, in the episode “The Inner Light” from Star Trek: The Next Generation.” It turns out that it was, in fact, one of the answers and Peter subsequently explains that he was part of the survey.
“Extra Large Medium”
In this episode, Peter believes he is a psychic, but Brian call him out as a fraud. Peter then says “No I’m not, I’ll tell you who’s a fraud… Mr. Spock.” Then there is a cutaway to the bridge of the Enterprise Where Kirk starts to tell Sulu to set a course, when Sulu interupts saying they are about to annouce the numbers for the intergalactic lottery. The numbers (announced by the ship’s computer, voiced by Nana Visitor) come up on screen, 18, 24, 41, 72. Spock then checks his numbers and gasps as he’s got the winning numbers. He then starts screaming and jumping around yelling around the room pointing to people saying to “Suck it!”, finally, as he gets on the turbolift, he tells everyone to “Live long, and suck it!”.
“It’s a Trap!”
In this spoof of Return of the Jedi, Mort/Lando calls the Enterprise-D for help during the Battle of Endor, but the crew is too busy having tea to do anything. Patrick Stewart and Michael Dorn reprised their roles as Jean-Luc Picard and Worf vocally for the bit.
“The Hand That Rocks the Wheelchair”
Stewie develops a device designed to amplify the evil in his persona, but, it first appears it does not work. When he and Brian leave the room, a duplicate Stewie materializes akin to when Captain Kirk was split into two halves by the transporter in TOS: “The Enemy Within”, complete with the original menacing music from the original episode and the close-up of the evil-Stewie scanning the room with his eyes.
“Tiegs for Two”
When Peter suspects that his Chinese dry cleaner, Mr. Washee Washee stole his shirt, he and Chris go to Mr. Washee Washee’s house to spy on him and investigate. When Mr. Washee Washee turns on the TV, it’s set to Star Trek, which he refers to as “The Mr. Sulu Show.” He then stars singing to the tune of the theme song and says that Sulu is the star of the show, and that everyone else is just along for the ride.
Peter, Chris and Brian are watching a televised version of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan that was edited for goats which featured actual footage from the movie. The scene features Khan marooning Kirk on Regula for eternity. But instead of him screaming “KHAN!!”, Kirk bleats like a goat.
Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story!src=”http://scifijaz.com/p/stewieuntold.jpg”
In the direct-to-DVD “movie” Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story!, Rene Auberjonois supplied the voice of Odo in a scene that parodied Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. In the scene, Stewie mentions his cousin, Quark Griffin, who is shown being harassed by Odo, before Quark tells him to morph into”someone with something interesting to talk about.”
During the opening credits, one of the still frames shows Brian climbing a mountain with Stewie watching from a pair of levitation boots, a spoof of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.
Near the beginning of the film when Stewie is clinging to Peter’s arm, refusing to get into the swimming pool, Stewie screams “I don’t want to die! I want to live! LIIIIVE!!!” This appears to be a spoof on the “evil” Kirk’s exclamation of the same wish in the original series episode “The Enemy Within”.
Later in the movie, Stewie meets up with his future self. When his future self is about to travel forward in time, Stewie leaps up, clinging to his future self, yelling “Surprise!”, as Gillian Taylor did in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.
Stan tells Jesus Christ “someone once said ‘Don’t try to be a great man, just be a man.'” When Jesus asks who said it, Stan replies “you did, Jesus.” When Kyle asks if he said that in the Bible, Stan replies “I dunno. I saw it on Star Trek.” (It is in fact from Star Trek: First Contact.)
“Conjoined Fetus Lady”
Cartman comments Chef’s obsession with winning the dodgeball tournament with “Captain Ahab has to get his whale, huh?”, a reference to Star Trek: First Contact, which is actually a reference to Moby Dick.
“City on the Edge of Forever”
In this 1998 episode, named after a famous Star Trek episode (TOS: “The City on the Edge of Forever”), the kid who just happens to be wearing the red shirt complete with arrowhead insignia, is the one chosen to scout the area around the schoolbus (which is teetering on the edge of a cliff). He promptly gets eaten by the monster.
“Roger Ebert Should Lay Off the Fatty Foods”
This episode, also from 1998, takes many of the plot points from the TOS episode “Dagger of the Mind”. The crazed director of the Tantalus V. Observatory (also named Dr. Adams), armed with his own neural neutralizer, hypnotizes some of the children, and Mr. Garrison, in his torture chair.
Additionally, Mr. Mackey, the school counselor, uses a mind meld to get information from a child named Van Gelder, who escaped from the observatory. The Latin phrase above the main archway is also a translation of “Beam Me Up, Scotty!” Also, during a TV news coverage about the events, the reporter is “a 34-year old Asian man who looks strikingly similar to Ricardo Montalban”.
This episode, again from 1998, parodies the TOS episode “Mirror, Mirror”. The boys find an alternate, evil universe. The evil Cartman from the mirror universe – actually a good Cartman, because the Cartman from the “standard” universe is the evil one – has a goatee, which is a requirement for those from a mirror universe, since everyone from the evil universe has one. (The gag of “Evil Cartman” actually being good may also be a reference to TOS: “The Alternative Factor” where the “Anti” Lazarus was actually good.) Officer Barbrady also shows Stan’s mother Sharon, a collection of photos depicting people who have recently gone missing in the neighborhood – one of them is a live-action photograph of a bare chested William Shatner. The ending of the episode, when Stan and Kyle have to figure out which Cartman to return to the mirror universe, is similar to the scene in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country where the commandant at Rura Penthe has Kirk and Martia posing as Kirk both telling him to shoot the other as well as the dilemma imposed upon Spock in “Whom Gods Destroy”.
In a joke reminiscent of the first Star Trek reference on the show, Stan tells his father Randy that the Bible says “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” When Kyle again corrects him and attributes the quote to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Stan says “The Bible, Wrath of Khan, what’s the difference?”
“Hooked on Monkey Fonics”
The discussion about love and public school between Kyle and Rebecca is almost word-for-word the discussion between Captain Kirk and Shahna from “The Gamesters of Triskelion”, complete with the musical theme for Ruth, composed by Gerald Fried, playing in the background.
“Staarvin’ Marvin in Space”
The home world of the Marklar is said to be in the Alpha Ceti VI galaxy, which is a reference to Ceti Alpha VI, the planet Ceti Alpha V was mistaken for in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Several Star Trek sound effects can also be heard throughout the episode.
“Something You Can Do with Your Finger”
The scene with Randy smashing the glass and screaming “No!!!”, along with the direct vocals used for it, were taken from the scene in Star Trek: First Contact, in which Picard exclaims ‘NO!’ and then proceeds to break a nearby glass display.
When the boys plan to travel back in time to return to third grade, they seek the help of “those Star Trek dorks” to help them. The two dorks wear shirts that say “Resistance is Futile!” and “Yeah! Resistance is Futile!” and give two possible theories about how they might travel through time, one of which is the “Mr. Spock Theory”, meaning a slingshot around the sun could propel one back in time (TOS: “Tomorrow is Yesterday”), and the other being the “Lieutenant Commander Data Theory” in which a magnetic vibration could do the same (TNG: “Time’s Arrow”). One of them also claims that “four times the Enterprise traveled back in time and four times they almost didn’t make it back.” (referring to “The Naked Time”, “Tomorrow is
Yesterday”, “Assignment: Earth”, and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home) When their time machine malfunctions, one of them says “this has never happened in the any of the 72 original Star Trek episodes”, while his friend maintains that there were 73 episodes (there are in fact 79 episodes, however, Matt Stone and Trey Parker intentionally made the mistake to infuriate other Star Trek fans). Butters later explains that the two don’t realize that “The Menagerie, Part I” was originally the pilot (named “The Cage”) and later got split up into two episodes. Stan also suggests that the two build another time machine to travel back and ask Gene Roddenberry exactly how many episodes there are.
“Here Comes the Neighborhood”
When Token brings a DVD of ” The Lion King ” rather than a VHS copy, Cartman quips “Let me take this disc up to the Enterprise and see if Captain Kirk can decrypt it.”
In this episode, Maury Povich is under siege by an army of physically disfigured freaks. In order to gain information about the mob, a man with a Vulcan haircut and blue shirt (but without the Enterprise mission patch) looks into a device which looks suspiciously like a viewer from the Enterprise (NCC-1701) and reports on the characteristics of the crowd.
“Fun With Veal”
The boys demand that “the guy who plays Worf on Star Trek” drive them and their liberated infant cattle to an airport which will take them to Mexico. They also want Michael Dorn to drive the truck in full Klingon make-up. When Cartman is riding along with Mr. Dorn, he demands that he refer to him as “captain.” He also orders him to kill the police officers, but Dorn refuses, causing Cartman to complain “some Goddamned Klingon you are.” The real Michael Dorn later admitted in an interview on StarTrek.com that he is a fan of South Park and wished that creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker had asked him to do a guest spot.
“The Passion of the Jew”
In the beginning of the episode, Cartman, Kenny, Stan, and Kyle are playing “away team” using Cartman’s mom’s new van as a shuttlecraft. Cartman plays the captain, while he refers to the others as “First Officer Stan”, “Engineer Kenny” and “Vulcan Jew Kyle.” When he orders the others (except Kyle) to investigate the surface of the planet, Kyle protests and demands to go along, to which Cartman begrudgingly agrees, but warns Kyle not to hold him responsible for anything that might happen on the planet’s surface. Later, when Stan and Kenny meet Mel Gibson and say that they want their money back after seeing The Passion of The Christ, he goes crazy and begins to scream “Q’apla”.
The boys’ preschool teacher, Miss Claridge, suffers extreme burns and is confined to a wheelchair just like Captain Pike’s, where she can only speak by beeping once for yes and twice for no.
Kirk and Khan are residents of Imaginationland.
Several references in this episode. First, Stan and Randy’s Pinewood Derby car breaks the warp barrier, which alerts an alien species. This is obviously alluding to Star Trek: First Contact, which is later mentioned by name as inspiration. At the end of the episode, Earth itself is put into a giant Tholian web, blocking them off from the universe, as punishment for Randy’s and Earth’s lying to the aliens.
