the sign outside the church of trek says: A Sci-Fi Religion that doesnt take all your money. - a direct jab at scientology

in the video store we again see the movie cover for Planet of the Clams.
other movies on the shelves: The Yawning, Werewolf Boy, Galaxy Wars, The Bellyachers, and Pipi Long?something?

The missle they sent the star trek tapes out in was like the genesis probe they sent out in the second star trek movie

everyone please add more  smile

The bleeping witness stand type thing they sat in during the trial was similar to the one used by Captain Muskie in "A Clone of My Own."

Which itself is a ref to Star Trek and the former captian of the Enterprise Chistopher Pike!  ::Geek-o-Meter explodes::

Also, here's a little nitpick just to be annoying.  They have said the words "Star Trek" in public before without having an alarm go off.

They had the 'time portal' which Kirk & Spock used to travel back to the depression era.

On the end credits:

          

      

The premise of the court martial and the "witness chair," or whatever it was called, was based on this episode - This is a low-quality image in which you might see one of the sources for a joke

Out of idle curiousity, how do you court-martial civilians?

lol... to bad my episode didn't have the credits (missed the episode, had to get it another way)
Also the other time it was mentioned it was in private, not in a public area.

The last trekkie to get thrown into the volcano is wearing a T-shirt with the slogan "Beam me up Scotty, there's no intelligent life here".

I'd have thrown him in first for that.

Zapp-phrase I hereby reserve for a fanfic:


Nixorbo's question about court-martialing civilians is valid; probably explains why the trial went nowhere in the end anyway. It's not an official DOOP proceeding, but some of Zapp's spur-of-the-moment jackassery.

He probably thought it was pronounced "court-martian" until Kif corrected him; later, he threatened to have Fry "kill-hauled."

The hand reaching out and grabbing the Planet Express ship is from the ST episode "Who Mourns for Adonis?".

When they kill all the Star Trek disciples, they "execute them in the manner befitting virgins"...implying all ST geeks are virgins.

Welshy is an obvious play on "Scotty" (Scotland/Scottish -> Wales/Welsh)

The part where Melllvar tells them they must fight with whatever they can find, is taken from "The Savage Curtain".

I thought it was from "Arena" (where Kirk builds a cannon out of dirt, diamonds, and a hollow log.).

In "Arena", there's just Kirk and the Gorn, and the Gorn really didn't a weapon.

In "The Savage Curtain", it was Kirk, Spock, Abraham Lincoln, and Surak vs. the bad dudes from history (Ghengis Kahn, Kahless, and others).  Our heros attempt to fashion weapons just like Kirk and Spock did (slings, bows, spears).  Of course, we know know Kahless and the Kingons aren't all bad guys.

Kirk's shreddered shirt is from the episode 'Shore Leave'

I made 2 screenshots myself from the 2 end-credit-aliens, they're bigger so if anyone here wants a closer look:

    Could also be a resultat of her mutant heritage.

    She has shown feats of great strength before:

    She easily flips the couch with both Bender and Fry in it in "Brannigan Begin Again" (and Bender weighs 425 pounds).

    She withstands the gravity of the planet in the same episode without any problems, something none of the guys can.

    She carries Fry all the way to the top of Watergate Hotel in "A Head In The Polls".

    etc.

Other strange connections to the utterance of the word "Star Trek":

-The word is forbidden, so in "Space Pilot 3000" the automatic door had a purpose in smashing Fry in the face when he said "Wow, just like on Star Trek."

-On the flip side, there is an "Old Trek vs. New Trek" site on the internet. But I think that mistake is at least excusable, being that it's hard to catch illegal activity on the internet.

I like the Star Trek Wars (where there was a great war between trekkies and nontrekkies) vs. Star Wars Trek (the migration of millions of Star Wars fans) joke.

Also, since it is shown that one needs to operate the pedal to make it beep, maybe captain musty isn't so bad off after all.
