Visual Crossovers with Other Series/Movies
by
Jörg Hillebrand and Bernd Schneider

Other Series/Movies in Star Trek - Star Trek in Other Series/Movies

 

Props from other TV series or movies repeatedly appeared in Star Trek, sometimes to save budget, sometimes as deliberate in-jokes or homages. Vice versa, visual cues to Star Trek can be found in a large number of otherwise unrelated series and movies. Please take the following pictures with a grain of salt. It is not our intention to endorse theories that any of the crossovers could be canon.

 

Other Series/Movies in Star Trek

The Outer Limits of exobiology The stuntman and animal imitator Janos Prohaska worked for many TV productions of the 1960s, including Star Trek and also notably The Outer Limits. It appears that Prohaska brought a couple of costumes and masks to Star Trek, which benefited the show with its notoriously low budget. Prohaska shows up as soon as in "The Cage", where he portrays the anthropoid ape and the humanoid bird. The mask of the former creature is definitely a re-use of Calco from the Outer Limits episode "Fun and Games". It is quite possible that the latter originates from The Outer Limits too, more precisely from the Megasoid in "The Duplicate Man". The beak and some details are different though.

There is another possible re-use from The Outer Limits that is often hinted at. The famous Horta (TOS: "The Devil in the Dark") is said to have previously appeared as the microbe beast in The Outer Limits: "The Probe". However, while there is definitely a resemblance, the microbe beast has some sort of tentacles, unlike the Horta.

Logan keeps running The Sandmen Headquarters from the science fiction movie "Logan's Run" (1976) appears on two occasions in Star Trek, in TNG: "Final Mission" and "Tapestry". A portion of the cityscape with is characteristic pyramids appears on the Enterprise's viewscreen, behind Admiral Bennett, in "Star Trek V".

Re-Used Planet Sets - Buildings from "Logan's Run"

From the 25th to the 24th century The planet matte of Aldebaran II from Buck Rogers: "The Plot to Kill a City" was re-used for Relva VII in TNG: "Coming of Age". The painting was modified in a couple of details. A dish antenna left of the main dome was replaced with a ball-shaped structure, instead of the red palm symbol on the dome there is now a Starfleet arrowhead, there are additional blue lights around the landing platform and new details on the rearmost buildings, including a small dome and some sort of garden around them. The apparent mesa at the middle distance was reshaped to a hill chain, and the otherwise unchanged mountains in the background are partially covered by a layer of mist. The sky looks somewhat different too.

Another re-use from Buck Rogers can be found in the form of the Boslic vessel in TNG: "Babel". The miniature was originally built by Ken Larson as the "Ranger", Buck's own ship, but remained unused. It was purportedly visible in a throw-away shot at the end of the first season, of which we have no visual evidence though. In Star Trek, the model continued its career as the basis for Neelix' Baxial, albeit as a CGI.

Mel's Maid We can see the same tunnel in TNG: "Too Short a Season" and, a few years later, in "Legacy". This painted extension was originally made for the access tunnels inside the "Mega Maid" in "Spaceballs"!

Indy's idol A replica of the fertility idol from "Raiders of the Lost Ark" can be seen in Dax' quarters in DS9: "Dax". Dax' version is not as shiny as the original, possibly in order to cover up its origin in another franchise. The prop from "Raiders of the Lost Ark" is very closely on a real pre-Columbian artifact. It depicts Tlazolteotl, the Aztec goddess of licentiousness.

Odo dreams of Jeannie? In DS9: "A Simple Investigation" we can see the same type of bottle that we know from "I Dream of Jeannie".

Data's purple ancestor In Clara Sutter's quarters in TNG: "Imaginary Friend" we can see a small statue of Maria, the Maschinenmensch from "Metropolis". This particular replica was produced by Masudaya in 1984 at 1/5 scale and in purple color.

Wesley's politically incorrect game In TNG: "The Dauphin" we can see Wesley with the game "Nukem" from "Robocop". His figures are from a 3D chess game, instead of the original tall metallic figures. The black cards with the atomic symbol, on the other hand, belong to the Trek version of the game as well.

Found in Space The lamp-like device on the ceiling of the (fake) Romulan holodeck in TNG: "Future Imperfect" is a replica of the spacecraft Jupiter II from "Lost in Space", according to Ed Miarecki. Also, the Jupiter II purportedly appears in the form of a chessman in TNG: "Unnatural Selection" (reported at Timecon '89). It is not really verifiable on the screen capture. But the chessman in TNG: "Conundrum" clearly based on the robot B-9, also from "Lost in Space", confirms that the first one is meant to be the Jupiter II.

Use the Force! In TNG: "Sub Rosa" we can make out the grave of a Mr. or Mrs. Vader, next to that of a certain McFly (or one of his time-traveling incarnations). The criminal Ibudan from DS9 has listed the departure from a spaceport called Alderaan in his schedule.

That's no moon, it's too angular In "Star Trek: First Contact" one of the Federation vessels fighting against the Borg cube is actually a Millenium Falcon, as was confirmed by ILM VFX artist John Knoll.

Another Star Wars ship appears in the form of the Talarian warship and the designs derived from it. The main hull was taken from an Imperial Star Destroyer. 

The Force is strong with Abrams Presenting Starfleet's newest acquisition in the field of robotics. But the technology from a long time ago in a galaxy far away was no help against the Narada ahead of time in another universe though.

A creepy ancient ship The Promellian battlecruiser from TNG: "Booby Trap" originally appeared in the horror movie "Night of the Creeps" (1986).

More than seven days into the future The same buildings (most likely actual aircraft hangars) appear in the science fiction series Seven Days and in ENT: "First Flight".

Starfleet's submarine seaQuest DSV borrows many motives from TNG, and likes to cite it. There is one mention of seaQuest DSV in TNG too, the name "Seaquest" of Darien Wallace's ship on a list in "Eye of the Beholder".

Illustrious family tree In TNG: "The Neutral Zone" Deanna Troi sifts through Clare Raymond's family tree to find relatives of the woman who had been frozen since the late 20th century (actually the display claims she died as late as 2035 as opposed to the spoken dialogue). Clare Raymond learns that her two sons were married to "Ginger Grant" and "Maryann Summers" from "Gilligan's Island". Her four grandchildren were named "Jonathan Frakes Raymond", "Denise P. Raymond", "LeVar Burton Raymond" and "Cheryl Gates Raymond". Their spouses were "Brent Spiner Raymond", "Marina Sirtis Raymond" and "Wil Wesley Raymond". The next generation has "Charles E. Winchester", "Sherman T. Potter", "Francis J. Mulcahey", "Margaret Houlihan", "Walter O'Reilly" "Kelleye Nakahara" - all characters from "M*A*S*H". In the fifth generation we can make out "William Hartnell", "Patrick Troughton", "Jon Pertwee", "Tom Baker", "Peter Davison", "Colin Baker" - all of whom played the Doctor in "Doctor Who". In addition, we find "Mary Richards" und "Louis Grant" in this generation, from "Mary Tyler Moore". The following two generations are almost illegible owing to the smaller font size, but eagle eyes may make out "Kermit T. Frog" and "Miss Piggy".

The screen displays were completely revised for the HD edition. The sometimes rather silly in-jokes referring to the TNG cast or to characters from other series were altered to be less obvious. The first generations are composed of: "Clare Raymond", "Donald Raymond", "Edward Raymond", "Ginger Summers", "Thomas Raymond", "Mary A. Grant", "Jonathan F. Raymond", "Marina S. Despina", "Denise C. Raymond", "Brent S. Jay Raymond", "Levardis B. Raymond", "Cheryl G. Raymond", "Wil W. Lachance Raymond", "Charles W. Raymond", "Sherman P. Raymond", "Francis M. Raymond", "Margaret H. Raymond", "Walter O. Raymond", "Kelleye N. Raymond", "Craig Weiss Raymond", "Nicki Kreitzman", "Chris Tezber Raymond", "Kiki Morris Raymond", "Sarah Paul Raymond", "Wade Felker Raymond", "Keven Scotti Raymond" and "Wendy Ruiz Raymond". The names of the crew working on the HD edition, such as Wendy Ruiz and also Niel Wray, were newly added. Also, the family tree now includes the place of birth and the dates of birth and of death for each member of the Raymond family. Finally, the spelling of Clare Raymond was changed from "Claire" to "Clare" on the first screen, and the date of her death was fixed.

The 8th Dimension in Equilibrium The DS9 episode "Equilibrium" has two references to the 1984 movie "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension". The first is another re-use of the oscillation overthruster prop from the movie, this time as a medical scanning device of the Trill. The second is the alleged name "Whorfin Dax" of a former Dax host on a monitor, as a homage to the character of John Whorfin, played by John Lithgow. We can spot other humorous names in the alphabetical list, such as "Batman Androbin", "Bedrock Townof" or "Bell Pacific".

Regarding "Buckaroo Banzai", the movie also appears in the form of the ship SS Buckaroo Banzai BBI-993, "commanded by Captain John Whorfin, launched in 2137 on a mission to Planet 10 (DIM 8) in the Ficus Sector". At least, this is listed on an Okudagram in TNG: "Up the Long Ladder". Whorfin is also the class name of the two passenger transports in "Star Trek Generations".


Re-Used Props - oscillation overthruster appearances

A dirty pair of Klingons There are several references to the anime series "Dirty Pair" on displays in TNG. For instance, "Op Kei" and "Op Yuri" appear beside the graphic of the Klingon BoP in TNG: "A Matter of Honor". Kei and Yuri are the protagonists of that show. "Dirty Pair" returns the favor on a couple of occasions.

Kira's Island It is barely recognizable, but the label on a monitor in DS9 reads: "Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip. That started from this tropic port, aboard this tiny ship."

Death Wing The casualty list from VOY: "Imperfection" has three "real" casualties listed, namely those of Marie Kaplan, Lyndsay Ballard and Timothy Lang who all died in the course of the series. The rest of the names seem to have been taken from "West Wing" characters!

Horizon Events Some of the frightening dream images from VOY: "Random Thoughts" were originally filmed for "Event Horizon".

Look Who's Watching On the more light-hearted side, VOY: "Someone to Watch Over Me" shows us shots of a human ovum from "Look Who's Talking".

Star Trek in Other Series/Movies

Battlestar Galactica We can see a vessel with two suspiciously long jump drives as a part of the ragtag fleet. And in the 4th season episode "The Ties That Bind" the pivotal scene in which Cally learns that her husband, Chief Tyrol, is a Cylon, takes place in "Weapons Locker 1701D".

Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey We can see the often re-used Tillman Water Reclamation Plant as "Bill & Ted University". After watching TOS: "Arena" earlier in the movie, Bill and Ted are transported to Vasquez Rocks, where they are tossed off the cliff and encounter Death (William Sadler aka Sloane).

In addition, an LCARS layout appears on a console. This prop can be rented from Modern Props, and at it has obviously retained the LCARS panel from an appearance in Star Trek Voyager.

James Bond 007 - Goldeneye Hacker Boris Grishenko has a spinning cube graphic on his screen. Of the images appearing on the cube as it spins is a communicator and the Starfleet logo.

MacGyver In the MacGyver pilot episode we can see the torpedo hatch on the Enterprise as it first appeared in "Star Trek II".

Mork & Mindy In the episode "Mork Goes Public" Mindy's father is wearing the protection suit from TOS: "The Naked Time" with the helmet from "The Tholian Web". Mork is wearing Colonel Green's uniform from "The Savage Curtain" with slight modifications. His helmet, by the way, originates in the Outer Limits episode "Soldier".

Stargate There are references to Star Trek in various Stargate SG-1 episodes. In the Stargate Universe, Star Trek is "only" a TV show and is quoted as such. For instance, in the episode SG1: "Unnatural Selection" Jack O'Neill suggests the name Enterprise for the spaceship X-303. In SG1: "Children of the Gods" the character Louis Ferretti can be seen doing the Vulcan hand salute. SG1: "200" even shows the crew in a Star Trek parody with according uniforms.

SG1: "The Other Guys", however, has a genuine in-joke, as we can see a bat'leth behind Khonsu's throne. The episode also features John Billingsley (Dr. Phlox) as a scientist who loves to quote Star Trek.

seaQuest DSV seaQuest DSV: "Hide and Seek" has William Shatner as a guest star. When he appears on the viewscreen, we can spot James Tiberius Kirk's initials "JTK" along with a familiar starship registry at the bottom. On the top of the screen we can also see "WS" for William Shatner. In "Dream Weaver" we can see a commemoration plaque for Nomad Mk-25A, the "first interstellar probe to seek out evidence of new life-forms".

The A-Team In the movie "The A-Team" we can see the credits of a movie in which an actor named "Reginald Barclay" is credited. Of course, this is a reference to Dwight Schultz, who played Reginald Barclay on TNG as well as Murdock in the A-Team series.

The Big Bang Theory No other TV series is so full of references to Star Trek as "The Big Bang Theory". The perhaps most noteworthy episode in this regard is “The Bakersfield Expedition". Here we can see Sheldon dressed as Data, Leonard as Captain Picard, Raj as Worf and Howard as a Borg. Vasquez Rocks also appears in the episode.

The Sarah Jane Adventures In the pilot episode of this Doctor Who spin-off series a map of the Milky Way Galaxy can be seen which was originally produced for TNG: "Conspiracy".

Transformers: Dark of the Moon In this Transformers movie Wheelie is watching the Star Trek episode "Amok Time", "the one where Spock goes nuts". Furthermore Leonard Nimoy voices Sentinel Prime in the movie, saying "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few".

West Wing In "Manchester, Part I" the Botany Bay is listed on a situation chart along with several actual US Navy ships. This is no surprise, considering that no one else but Mike Okuda made this display.

Dirty Pair The Dirty Pair episode 1 "How to Kill a Computer" shows a list with some familiar names. DeForest Kelley is not spelled correctly though. In episode 2, "Do Lovely Angels Prefer Chest Hair?", we see a random bit of decoration in the meeting room of a space cruiser company who are discussing why their ships are being destroyed in so many "accidents". On a further note Dirty Pair forms sort of a symbiotic relationship with Star Trek as the latter returns the favor with several references to "Kei" and "Yuri" and with Rick Sternbach basing the design of the exocomp on the Dirty Pair character of Nanmo.

In the Dirty Pair episode "No Way! 463 People Disappeared?", there is a clear shot of Arthur having a model Enterprise hanging from his ceiling. On closer inspection, one can almost make out the full registry. The episode "But They're Only Children!" features a team of rowdy children taking over a military base and demanding that every station play only cartoons. Hidden within the generic kiddie stuff is the Enterprise transforming into some butt-kicking robot.

Other Japanese Anime Star Trek is referenced in several more Japanese anime series. In "Daphne in the Brilliant Blue" we look at the motor in a character's car. The dialogue actually mentions the names as it refers to the type of engine. Note that "NC1701D" is missing a "C". 

In "Gunsmith Cats", surprisingly a non-sci-fi instance, we can see a license plate with a rather out-of-this-world registry.

In "The Irresponsible Captain Tylor" the English dub mentions phasers and photon torpedoes as two of the weapons that the two warring factions use. However that can only be noted for the dub and may not hold true for the original dialogue. There's even a point where the characters are enthralled by some nebula and the The Blue Danube plays in the background as an obvious homage to "2001: A Space Odyssey" (again this can't be confirmed from original Japanese). Also of note is the fact that the UPSF and the Ralgon Empire in the anime looks like the Federation versus the Romulan Star Empire, also because the Ralgon have pointed ears. Anyway, an obvious visual reference is in the ship designs, of which one is clearly inspired by Klingon cruisers such as the Vor'cha.

Speaking of Easter Eggs on monitors, there is one on the SDF-1's bridge in Robotech season 1 (or "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross"), mentioning "Klingons", "Enterprise" and "Ph Torps". Also note that it takes "09 years to repair" the damaged computer. ;-) More specifically, this is a reference to the BASIC computer game "Star Trek" that was popular in the late 70s. The screen imitates the text-based interface of that game.

There are a couple of Trek references in the Tenchi Muyo series, among them a one-eyed Spock in the Episode 4 prologue. 

A clear Trek reference in the form of the Galileo shuttle with the registry "NCC-1701-A" can be found in "The Darkest Day" of the Dragon Ball Z series.

In "Sonic: The Movie" we can see a ship inspired by the Enterprise as part of the wreckage on Sonic's island.

During a trippy hyperdrive flight in "Heavy Metal", we come across the wreckage and debris of many spacefaring objects including an unmistakable Enterprise.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012) Leonardo watches the show "Space Heroes" that is very blatantly a Star Trek knock-off, specifically The Animated Series. The show is done in 2D ink & paint style almost distinguishing it as animated within the show. Further adding to this is the various nuances (limited animation particularly) actually serving as homage to TAS itself versus a cut & paste TOS parody. In one episode, we can also see a movie poster for "Space Heroes III", which is obviously based on the "Star Trek III" poster.
