I saw the Space 1999 ship, so don't feel too bad. How I laughed.

Where did Welshy come from? When they're boarding the rocket, and Shatner and Nimoy have their nice little farewell scene, there are only 4 jars in the rocket. Shatner take the fifth space, and the last one was for Nimoy. So again, how did Welshy get to Omega III?

On related note: Why is Bender so hostile towards Koenig? He yells "Koenig" several times, Koenig is the only one to get really hurt (a black eye) and there is that whole Alright Koenig, I wanted to do this for years!" sentence. Doesn't Bender like fake Russian accents?  laff

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

His parents were killed by a fake Russian accent.

Don't know if this has been pointed out, but another fact in the star trek name controversy: In the episode where they are on the internet (I dated a robot) there was Old-Trek-vs-New-Trek .com or something like it....

That's "Brandenburger Tor", one of the landmarks of Berlin.



You can see a close up of it here. Big picutre, nice quality.

And did anyone catch that welshie was the member of the crew you've never seen before that gets killed in the first 5 minutes of the show?

Please edit your sig to 120 pixel height max.

Freeze frame fun: when Fry uses the caterpiller bow, and gets them all over himself, for one frame they all vanish except for the one in his mouth.  Conspiracy?  I want to know what is up with these magic caterpillers that can become invisible at will.

Or it could just be an animation error, who cares.

Watching that scene frame by frame the caterpillars just seemed to be all over the place.  They kept disappearing and reappearing.  What I found wierder was that the wood broke before the caterpillar string.  Or how caterpillars could exist on a planet with almost no vegetation.

Has anyone actually sat down and watched Where No Fan Has Gone Before and figured out how many Star Trek episodes were referenced?

I know that there were a lot (And I'm only talking about season 1 and the last half of season 3)

A mistake: Fry has to be toild how to say the simple words "yes" or "no" in the beeb box (chortle chortle  wink), but he can speak all the other words fine.

It's a gag.

True.  But, it's doesn't seem that illogical, when the whole beep thing, is just a setup for related gags throughout the episode.

So, that said, the initial line, "one beep for yes, two beeps for no" is the setup (to explain the gag for the viewer), the rest are main Zapp gags knocking down the original setup.  Like:

Two beeps: "Double yes!"

Would that be funny without the setup line?

Nope.

Second gag is Fry talking in virtual morse-code through the beeper to explain the story so far, and Zapp insisting that everyone else used the beeps too.

It's what made the episode hilarious for me.

Yep, that's the external explanation, but in the context of the episode, why is it necessary to explain to Fry how many beeps Yes and No requires, when he can the entire morse-code by heart?

And the answer is: because Yes and No are used a lot in court proceedings they're assigned "hotkeys" (hotbeeps?), just like on a PC keyboard. Kif simply tells Fry this, otherwise he might've morsed the words Yes and No.

So there, external (Melllvar) and internal (me) explanation provided. Don't say I wont go to great lengths to make this show seem logic.  laff  smile

Of course, we all know the REAL answer is "Because that's how it was done on Star Trek".

I doubt anyone can't list all the Star Trek references at once, there endless.

I like when Bender says, "Another classic science fiction show cancelled before its time."

I'm sure that years from now, when we're all watching this episode on DVD, or in reruns (if Futurama ever gets syndicated), that line will make us all laugh, or cry, or perhaps vomit with rage.

I'm sure we'll all feel something, anyway.   tongue

Another one is:

"Shatner's log. Airdate: Unknown."

Self-referential humour is sooo funny.

Plus, Zapp's: "Quiet you!!" to Shatner is a fantastic moment.  As Zapp is based on Shatner.
