Can anyone find any ultra-subtle Star Wars references in Futurama that I may have missed. I got the "Near Death Star" joke, and the Rebel Alliance crest on Frys helmet in "When Aliens Attack", and the Cops have "Lightsaber" truncheons but I have been assured that there is at least one reference in every episode. Anybody found more?

The holographic image of the planet Spheron One projected over the soldiers in the same episode. Same episode? Oops.

Fry and Bender were playing the chess-like game:

Fry: Horsey to pointy guy 6.
<Horse beats Bishop to death>
Bender:  hmm.... Get him!
<all the pieces jump off the table and attack Fry>
Fry: good move...

I'll look at my tapes again.

Also, in Raging Bender. At the movie theaters, there is a poster for Galaxy Wars, or whatever it was called(the historical documentary). It was obviously a Star Wars rip, with Naboo-ey looking ships and all.

Thought of another:

When entering the Near Death Star, Leela and Bender put on brown robes that look surprisingly similar to what Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor wore . . . (AKA Jedi Robes)

Black robes, actually, to blend in as Death-Bots.

another one but very hard to see..

in 3ACV14 "Time keeps on slipping" when at the end Fry takes the helm of the ship and pilot she far from the explosion area the sound of the ship is the one from the Millenium Falcon (i know it, i had escorted/destroyed that ship a lot of times..)   big grin  .

in "A dated a robot" a Dianoga appears (also in 1ACV01 the dianoga appears in old  New York)

New New yourk is like Coruscant, because the ruins of the old NY are located under NNY, like Coruscant, old Coruscant ruins are located under the main city.... and those ruins are  (like in futurama) plaged of mutants, extrange creatures and animals, etc

These are really obvious: the space slug in The Route of All Evil & the C-3P0 robot in Crimes of the Hot. And Farnsworth mentions "Jedis" in the same episode.

In the "Lesser of Two Evils" while walking through Past-o-rama the gang passes a movie sign that says "Star Wars 9, Yoda's Barmitzah (SP?)"

In Love & Rocket, the scene where the PE is pursued by Omicronian ships is similiar to the one in "The Empire strikes back" where the Millennium Falcon tries to escape the ISDs.

Also, in SP3K when the PE Ship is fired upon by the police and escapes into space. It looks like they are leaving the Death Star trench...

In "Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch", Zapp senses a "very sensual disturbance in the Force." And in "30% Iron Chef" Bender uses a lightsaber to peel a potato.
