Star Trek and pop culture

The following are Star Trek parodies and pop culture references that have aired on animated television shows.


30-Second Bunnies Theatre

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was re-enacted by these anthropomorphic animated bunnies in 30 seconds, hence the name.


Achille Talon/Walter Melon

In "Walter Melon in Star-Blecch", Walter Melon and Bitterbug replace two members of the USS Enterprise when James T. Kirk and Leonard McCoy are lost in a desert planet.

The Adam & Joe Show

Each episode of this British series featuring Joe Cornish contained a parody sketch of a 90's film or TV series using childrens toys. In episode four of series three, "Stuffed Trek: The Toy Generation" saw the crew of the KinderSurprise, including Mr. Datoy, and Deanna Toy, face off aginst the cybernetic Bjorn Borg. It also showed a more detailed knowledge of The Next Generation than many other parodies, including the love triangle between Riker, Troi, and Worf, and Guinan serving real alcohol when a distate for synthehol is expressed.

A cutout of Data was also seen in the background of the screen which showed the series' website address.

Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog

In "The Magnificent Sonic", the six-shooter Sonic shoots at the robot makes the same sound as the photon torpedoes from Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager.

Adventure Time

In "Holly Jolly Secrets" (Part 2)", a shredded picture can be seen inside the tree fort which appears to depict someone in an Original Series uniform holding a phaser-like weapon. The episode also has Finn saying "We gotta unravel these evil secrets at warp crazy!".

A number of Star Trek cast members have provided voice work for the series. The most notable of these is probably Jonathan Frakes, who has on two occasions voiced an adult version of Finn, the main character of the series, for the episodes "Puhoy" and "Dungeon Train" respectively. Another memorable character, Ricardio the Heart Guy, was voiced by George Takei. He appeared twice. Additionally, less consequential parts were filled by LeVar Burton, Marina Sirtis, Michael Dorn, and Wallace Shawn.

Aladdin: The Series

In "To Cure a Thief", Genie transforms into an alien having Vulcan ears and wearing an outfit similar to the one from the later TOS movies and his manner of speech is similar to that of Dr. McCoy.

Alvin and the Chipmunks

The episode "Star Wreck: The Absolutely Final Frontier" is a parody of the Star Trek series, the title is the parody of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Alvin is Captain Kirk, Simon is Mr. Spock, Theodore is Dr. McCoy, Eleanor is the female version of Chekov, Janette is Uhura, and Alvin's ship is similar in design of the Miranda-class starship (which looks the saucer section of the Ambassador-class with two hyperjets in the bottom). Alvin's ship encounters an alien family which wants the galaxy to be the same and the giant vacuum cleaner which threatens to destroys his ship.

American Dad!

American Dad! is an animated show that runs on the Fox network. Created by Seth MacFarlane, it features many Star Trek references. The show also features Patrick Stewart in the recurring role of CIA Deputy Director Avery Bullock.

"All About Steve"

An upcoming sci-fi con will feature a Klingon wedding followed by a Klingon divorce.

Steve and his friends wear TOS-era Starfleet uniforms into the New York Yankees locker room which embarrasses Stan. They also wear their uniforms to the con complete with toy phasers. Two other teenage boys also wear uniforms.

Steve compares his jock strap to a protective force field.

There is a poster of the Enterprise NCC-1701 in the basement where Steve and his friends play.

Two of the booths at the con are "Starfleet Emporium" and "Starfleet Universe."

"Star Trek"

The episode's title parodies the franchise title while making a play on words. The episode centers on the rise and fall of Steve's career as a child author. The only other reference is the two vicious guard dogs at Steve's mansion, who are named Sulu and Chekov.

"Not Particularly Desperate Housewives"

After a dog Stan tried to get rid of returns, Stan tells the dog it has earned a warrior's death. He then goes to the closet and takes out a bat'leth and prepares to kill it, but then Roger pops in and the dog attacks him. Stan decides to keep the dog, but feels that not using the bat'leth would be a waste, so he decides to use it on eBay, specifically he would use it to kill his enemies that are on eBay.

"Meter Made"

An exchange between Steve and Roger, about how people in Heaven saw what Steve had done.

Roger: "...Star Trek's James Doohan." Steve: "Scotty saw?" Roger: "Scotty watched the whole damn thing."

"May the Best Stan Win"

In this episode, Stan talks about the face he will make when he's frozen after he goes into cryo, just like "Han Solo... from Star Trek". Clearly, he's confusing Trek with another popular franchise.

"One Little Word"

Bullock selects Stan to be his "Number One," the informal title Jean-Luc Picard gave to William T. Riker. However, instead of being Bullock's second-in-charge, Stan becomes Bullock's errand boy. Francine serves baby-sitter to Bullock's mentally disturbed wife and to his infant child.

"Escape from Pearl Bailey"

After Steve's girlfriend leaves him, Snot tries to reassure him: "She isn't fit enough to re-calibrate your tricorder."

"Bar Mitzvah Hustle"

Steve throws a Star Trek-themed Bar Mitzvah for Snot complete with a DJ in a Borg costume, transporter room dance floor, painting of Snot dressed as a Klingon, a Gorn ice scultpure, and a bat'leth.

"Lost in Space"

One of the slaves aboard the mall ship is a particularly muscular Andorian.

"I Ain’t No Holodeck Boy"

The CIA constructs a holodeck operating on the same engineering principles and control interface as seen in The Next Generation. Stan and Dick outright refer to it as this only for Bullock to be ignorant of the term. When Steve later takes control of it, a Gorn head can be seen as an image on the console.


In the segment entitled "Space Probed", the Warners are taken on board an alien spacecraft, and Marvin the Martian, Darth Vader, and Captain Picard are briefly shown in a waiting room together - part of a chase initiated after Yakko yells "Look - it's big, fat Scotty from Star Trek!" and escapes when his alien captors look for the engineer.

A segment of Animaniacs titled "Star Truck" featured Yakko, Wakko, and Dot being beamed aboard the original Enterprise, (albeit done up with monster truck wheels, as per the cartoon's title), claiming the Starfleet delegates who were supposed to be there were "really busy" (at which point you see two Andorians, one in a TOS Starfleet uniform, the other in a TOS film tunic, sitting on a couch playing video games), and wreaking havoc among the crew. (The characters are clearly genuine fans of the show, as upon meeting "Kirk", they ask to "go back to New York in the 1930s," where he could "fall in love with Joan Collins," who would then die, "go lookin' for Mr. Spork's brain," or Harry Mudd, or Roger Mudd, and Wakko asks to "swim with the whales.") Gags included Wakko introducing Scotty to doughnuts (thus causing him to become portly and have a pink frosting mustache), Spork mind-melding with them in sickbay, and then saying their trademark "Hel-lo Nurse!" line when Uhura enters, and when Khan appears, Yakko comments, "Ooooh, it's Ricardo Montalban and his big plastic chest!" (an obvious parody of the fan rumor that Montalban's chest in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was a prosthetic appliance, and not his actual physique). Dot later proposes to distract Khan's crew "with a fancy fan dance", riffing on Uhura's dance from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. When the Warners take control of the ship, Yakko takes the command chair and sits on a tribble.

Another episode of Animaniacs contained a segment titled "Karaoke Dokie" which made fun of the singing careers of Shatner ("Willie Slackner") and Nimoy (shown complete with pointy ears).

In the episode "Moby or Not Moby," the Warners perform a musical number to the tune of the sea shanty "Drunken Sailor", in an attempt to convince Captain Ahab to stop hunting whales. One of the things they recommend he do is "watch Star Trek IV."

In the segment "Please Please Pleese Get a Life Foundation", a model of the Enterprise and a poster saying "Kirk Vs. Picard" can be seen in the room of nitpicking geek.

In "Suspended Animation Pt. II", the first episode of the Hulu relaunch, the Warners catch sight of two workers carrying a model of the USS Enterprise, which surprises Yakko. The workers explain the concept of a reboot, bringing back old IPs for a new generation (or as one worker puts it, for the "next generation", if he "makes it so"). The duo then perform the Vulcan salute before leaving.


In the fourth season episode "Midnight Ron", Archer comments on his gun only having a limited amount of bullets by sarcastically stating that it is not a phaser.

The sixth season episode "Three to Tango", set in Argentina, featured a visual gag spoofing Picard's famous way of ordering his favorite hot beverage. The label on a box of tea read "Té Earl Gray Caliente."

The penultimate episode of the show's seventh season, "Deadly Velvet: Part I", included a visit to a 1940s movie set. Archer commented how real it was by comparing it to that time when an episode of Star Trek went to Chicago or in another instance to Nazi Germany.


Arthur's uniform

"Hide and Snake"

In this season 4 episode, Arthur wears a pullover which has a bare resemblance of the commando uniform from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.


In this season 13 episode, a toy alien robot proclaims "Resistance is futile"

"Speak Up, Francine!"

In the season 17 episode, Francine is trying to prepare for a speech she's going to give and imagines herself on the bridge of the Enterprise, asking Buster (Scotty) to give her more power. Buster uses a Scottish accent and makes a variation on the Vulcan salute; his middle and ring fingers are touching, while his index and baby fingers are separated from their neighbors.

"Swept Away"

In a scene in this season 11 episode, Arthur, Buster, and D.W. are trying to decide what to name their recently-constructed sandcastle, and Arthur and Buster want to name it the "Starfish Enterprise" which is a reference to the franchise.

Atomic Betty

  • Season 1: episode 51: "Franken Brain". At the end you can see Betty wearing a sciences division uniform.
  • Season 3: episode 24: Lulu on the loose, you can see an alien like Spock named "Spock" but with a green skin.


Back at the Barnyard

An episode of the Nickelodeon series parodies "Amok Time".

The show includes the following actors/actresses: Cam Clarke, Dee Bradley Baker, Jeff Glenn Bennett, Maurice LaMarche, Jim Cummings, Grey DeLisle, Jennifer Hale, John Kassir, Tress MacNeille, Kevin Michael Richardson, and Thomas F. Wilson.

Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse

In the episode "Trapped in the Dreamhouse", Ken studies the plans of the dreamhouse and finds a Death Star-esque weakness that is exploitable using photon torpedoes.

Beavis and Butt-head

Beavis and Butt-head was an American animated television series created by Mike Judge and was featured on MTV and centered on the misadventures of two socially inept rock-loving teenage boys, who are the title characters (both voiced by Judge), who are roommates and live in the fictional town of Highland. They attend high school where their teachers are often at a loss as to how to deal with them, although in many episodes, the two skip school. They occasionally work part-time at Burger World and sometimes other side-jobs when people mistake their odd behavior as outgoing and assertive.

The comedic value is supposed to be derived from their utter lack of conventional values: they are highly obnoxious, misogynistic, and rude to almost every other character in the show, and even to each other. They do not seem to realize this however and seem to function on an instinctual level. They survive their often hazardous misadventures without serious consequences though others around them don't fare as well. Mixed within each episode are segments in which Beavis and Butt-head watch asinine music videos and provide humorous and bizarre commentary improvised by Judge.

"Dream On"

"Aye, captain. Hehehehe."

Butt-head has a dream where he and Beavis portray the roles of William T. Riker and Jean-Luc Picard, respectively. One line recalled from the episode, spoken by Butt-head was, "Number One, I order you to take a number two." Pavel Chekov is inexplicably running conn and "Butt-head Picard" also orders Counselor Troi to undress.

"Burger World"

The duo are watching an episode of Star Trek and Beavis is attempting to do the Vulcan salute. Butt-head also says the crew of the Enterprise better lookout for the Klingons near "Uranus".

"Hard Sell"

Beavis and Butt-head get a job at a call center selling magazine subscriptions. Butt-head plays with his intercom and says "Kirk to Scotty. Kirk to Scotty. I need more speed, bunghole."


Beavis and Butt-head are riding in a van with people who debate if they go into the future whether they should either give Geordi La Forge his sight or make Data a real Human.

"Beavis and Butt-head's Island"

Beavis and Butt-head find themselves "trapped" in the middle of a mall fountain and while humming the Gilligan's Island theme, they compare their situation to Star Trek.

"Pumping Iron"

Beavis and Butt-head go to a gym and they play around with a treadmill. Butt-head messes around with the controls and says, "Warp speed, Mr. Sulu." Beavis then says, imitating Chekov, "But Captain, the Klingons are approaching."

"I've Got You Babe"

In a cover of "I've Got You Babe" by Cher, a scene briefly appears with Butt-head as William T. Riker and Beavis as Jean-Luc Picard.

The four possible answers are "A: a visual feast for the senses", "B: a zestful lark through time and space", "C: the best Zachary Quinto movie of all time" or "D: all of the above". Bojack incorrectly answers D, with both A and B being the correct answers (though Mr. Peanutbutter notes that he would also agree with C).

"Da Doggone Daddy/Daughter Dinner Dance"

After accidentally killing the family dog and lying to his stepchildren, Cleveland tries to find a way to fix it, but he says doing so is harder than trying to identify a rapist at a Star Trek convention. In the cut scene, the victim describes to two police officers that the assailant was a white male, 35-45 years old, had glasses, bad skin, was about fifty pounds overweight, smelled like Cheetoh's, and was carrying a poster with a Sharpie pen.

The episode Operation: D.U.C.K.Y. features sailors of a ship who are a direct parody of Star Trek and the captain is a parody of William Shatner. His name is James T. Dirt. The episode Operation: T.R.I.C.K.Y. also featured Numbuh One dressed up as a Borg for Halloween. The episode S.A.T.U.R.N. has a plot and mane antagonist being a parody of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The episode S.P.A.C.E. has a spaceship resembling the original USS Enterprise and the plot is similar to Star Trek: First Contact.

The Critic

The Critic was an animated comedy show from Simpsons producers Al Jean and Mike Reiss. The show takes viewers into the world of acerbic New York film critic Jay Sherman (played Jon Lovitz), who reviews classic and current films, which although loved by the public, fall far short of his high critical standards. Jay constantly struggled to balance his contempt for popular taste with his need to be loved and his search for success.

"Sherman of Arabia"

Worf doing the Hambone

"From Chunk to Hunk"

William Shatner is hosting a TV show called "Celebrity 911", a parody of the show Rescue 911 which Shatner hosted, and he devotes the entire hour to police calls involving actor James Caan. He then pauses and screams out "CAAAAAAAAAAN!!!!", just as Kirk did in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

"Marty's First Date"

When Marty tells the kids that they're gonna work hard during a slumber party, they all leave and the two Klingon kids transport themselves away. They reappear again with their mother to thank Jay for the pizza and they transport away.

"A Song for Margo"

Jay is reviewing a movie called Star Trek Generation X, which parodies Star Trek Generations. The clip features Keanu Reeves and Christian Slater on board the bridge of the Enterprise-D and Kirk and Picard appear, Picard wants to know which one of them wrote "Beavis and Butt-head rule!" on the back of his skull and they deny doing it and then laugh like the titular duo. Keanu Reeves then ask them, "Hey, aren't you the two dudes from the TV show? You know, that space thing?" and Kirk asks them to try to stay in-character. Jay then asks, "When will people stop going to Star Trek movies? Maybe when they see this clip of William Shatner musical number" (in which he sings "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head" and Patrick Stewart is playing the tambourine).


Danny Phantom

The whole episode is a spoof of the original Star Trek including references to "Amok Time", "The Gamesters of Triskelion", "The Enemy Within" and "A Private Little War" among others. There is also the joke of Dexter calling Dr. McBoy "Skins" in reference to Kirk's nickname of "Bones" for McCoy.

Also in the second season, the episode "Misplaced in Space", in which Dexter is transported to a savage planet as a slave/prisoner, bears several similarities to "The Gamesters of Triskelion".

Digimon Adventure

In the English dub of the episode "Kabuterimon's Electro Shocker", the main character, Tai Kamiya, suggests that Izzy Izumi was using his computer to e-mail aliens to "beam him [Izzy] up" from the Digiworld.

Already in the first episode, "We'll Teach You How To Kill A Computer", a list of people can be seen that corresponds to the original series cast.

In the next episode, "Do Lovely Angels Like Chest Hairs?", a picture of the Enterprise is seen in the background of a character during a meeting.

The next reference comes in the 21st episode, "You're Kidding! 463 People Disappear", where a model of the Enterprise is seen hanging from the ceiling in a kid's room.

Furthermore, in one episode of the 1987 OVA, "They're Only Kids? Wargamers Must Die", the original Enterprise is briefly seen transforming into a robot in a glitch-like effect interspersed in a tv cartoon of dancing animals.

In the process, Duckman briefly transforms into different characters, including Captain Kirk (saying, "Beam me up, Scotty.") From behind, he is also shown to briefly transform into Spock.

"Pig Amok"

Duckman's partner, Cornfed, learns he is going to die within twenty-four hours unless he loses his virginity. One of the places Duckman takes him to meet women is a Star Trek convention (rationalizing that "We need women who never meet desirable men"). Duckman and Cornfed are dressed as Kirk and Spock, respectively, for this scene. The title, of course, is a reference to "Amok Time".

"They Craved Duckman's Brain!"

A doctor discovers that Duckman's brain holds the cure to cancer and intends to claim it even at the cost of Duckman's life. The doctor rationalizes it by asking, "Didn't a wise man say, 'The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few'?" Duckman responds by saying Spock said that and only because he knew Kirk would send his body to the Genesis planet, reviving him. The conversation goes on, with other characters noting that Picard could revive Kirk by taking him to Genesis. Also, Ron Perlman guest stars as another character.

"Where No Duckman Has Gone Before"

The penultimate episode of the series was a full-blown parody of the original series. Duckman is a caricature of Kirk, Cornfed of Spock, Bernice of Uhura, Ajax of Scotty, Charles of Chekov, Grandma-ma of Christopher Pike, Art De Salvo (a recurring character voiced by Gilbert Gottfried) of Bones, Fluffy and Uranus of redshirts, and King Chicken of Khan Noonien Singh. Duckman's other son Mambo is apparently himself, but is incorrectly addressed as Sulu. The Enterprise resembles the stardrive section of the Galaxy-class starship. References to episodes/movies included "The Enemy Within", "Arena", "Operation -- Annihilate!", and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Marina Sirtis and James Doohan voiced characters in this episode, and it ended with a live-action scene of Leonard Nimoy.

Duck Dodgers

The basic premise of this Warner Bros. animated series is a Looney Tunes parody of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century and other space operas, including many constant references to Star Trek. Captain Dodgers works for a multi-planet coalition called "The Galactic Protectorate" (a parody of the United Federation of Planets), which constanly clashes with two rivalring powers, Mars (resembling a bit to the Romulan Star Empire) and the "Klunkan Empire", an obvious parody of the Klingon Empire. They and their leader, K'Chutha Sa'am (Yosemite Sam), resemble to the Original Series series Klingons in appearance and behavior.

The title of one episode, "The Wrath of Canasta" is a parody of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. In another episode, "The Queen is Wild/Back at the Academy", Dodgers engages the Queen of Mars in a parody of the Battle of the Mutara Nebula (the Martian command ships bear resemblance to Miranda class starships) and succeeds an Academy test by cheating, but gets maximum scores for bravery and original thinking, just like James T. Kirk did on the Kobayashi Maru scenario.

Another major episode titled "Of Course You Know The Means War and Peace" features a story combining the conspiracy ridden peace efforts of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country with the theft from decommision of the main ship of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. Other notable references involve the rise and fall from admiralty of the main character and the inclusion of a character voiced by John Billingsley.

The series featured the voice of Michael Dorn in the regular role of the Martian Centurion and most of the Klunkans.


The title of the episode "Where No Duck Has Gone Before" references the opening narration from the original series; the same episode features the show-within-a-show "Courage of the Cosmos," the series is an obvious parody of Star Trek, with its protagonist "Major Courage" an equally obvious parody of James T. Kirk.

In another episode, when Magica transforms herself into a nanny, the Wrath of Khan phaser sound is heard.

The show included voice work from Frank Welker, Hamilton Camp, Miriam Flynn, Jim Cummings, Tress MacNeille, Corey Burton, Barry Dennen, and Richard Libertini.

The theatrical movie Ducktales: Treasure of the Lost Lamp has Christopher Lloyd voicing the film's antagonist Merlock.


EEK! The Cat

This cartoon had a parody of Star Trek, even down to a redshirt getting hit by a boulder. In the parody, Eek captained the USS Shoesuntied, which is the parody of the USS Grissom.

Earthworm Jim

Evil the Cat: "We must have more speed!"
Henchrat: (imitating Scotty) "I cannot do it, captain! She'll not take the strain!"


The TNG transport sound is heard when the wall regenerates. The TOS phaser sound is heard when the alien spire begins emitting great energy waves.

Extreme Ghostbusters

Extreme Ghostbusters was a sequel to The Real Ghostbusters and another cartoon spin-off of the hit 1984 film Ghostbusters. Maurice LaMarche reprises his role of Egon Spengler who recruits a new team of Ghostbusters from his university class to fight new supernatural threats. Tara Strong, Rino Romano and Jason Marsden voiced three of the four new recruits: Kylie Griffin, Eduardo Rivera and Garrett Miller. Frank Welker also returned to reprise his role of Ray Stantz in the two-part episode "Back in the Saddle" and the show also featured the voices of Clancy Brown, Rene Auberjonois and John de Lancie.

A recurring joke throughout the episode has Egon making scientific analyses, including the line "fascinating", that cause the astronauts a sense of déjà vu. In the end, his mannerisms elicit the line, "you're right, he does seem to remind me of a certain pointy-eared science officer."

Twister's dirtboarding helmet looks like the head of a Gorn. Also parts of the mountain bear a passing resemblance to the Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park.

"It Came From Planet Merv"

The anti-gopher device developed by Merv Stimpleton (voiced by Henry Gibson) makes a noise like TOS transporter startup. Also, in the comic book that Sammy gives Twister, an alien character utters the threat "Resistance is useless!"

"Race Across New Zealand"

In an early scene when the main characters are paddling inner tubes through the Waitomo Caves, Otto's teasing of Twister on the nature of Arachnocampa luminosa suggests they may be familiar with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and the fate of Terrell.

Rocko's Modern Life

Rocko's Modern Life was a Nickelodeon animated series that often made references to popular culture, one of them being Star Trek.

"Keeping Up with the Bigheads"

In the beginning of the episode, Ed Bighead uses his new special goggles to detect weeds and bugs in his garden. But when his wife, Bev, gets his attention, Ed's goggles emit the similar sound effect as the padd beeps from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Later, Rocko and Heff make a brown and greenish paint color called "Breen".

"A Sucker for the Suck-O-Matic"

Rocko orders a powerful new vacuum cleaner from a home shopping channel. Soon after it is revealed the machine possess a mind of its own and begins devouring everything in sight.

We're being sucked into some kind of cosmic void."

"Born to Spawn"

When Filburt comes of age, a physiological need drives him to visit his ancestral home in the Galapagos islands, similar to "Amok Time".

"Future Schlock"

After Rocko and Heffer are accidentally launched into space and presumed lost forever, they return many years into the future. Their friend Filburt and his kids rush to greet them using a device called the "transportater" that only beams them a few feet away to the top of a stairwell, which they take the rest of the way.


"The Inside Story"

The "movie-within-an-episode" shown on the Pickles' TV set that homages Isaac Asimov's Fantastic Voyage (and in turn influences the babies' imagination session) includes TOS bridge background noise and transporter sound effects.

In "The Gates of Gloom", the dialogue between Fred and Daphne after the destruction of the Mystery Machine: "What have I done?" "What you had to do. What you always do, turn traps into a fighting chance to live," are a shout-out to similar words between Kirk and McCoy after the destruction of the Enterprise in The Search for Spock.

The Secret Lives of Waldo Kitty

Spaceballs: The Animated Series

This shortlived series based on the Star Wars parody movie of the same name. Despite being a science-fiction parody, Star Trek is scantly mentioned, and only in the last two episodes, an oversight that was no doubt a factor in the series' early demise.

In the episode "The Skroobinator", the character Snotty, based on Scotty, from the movie is again mentioned, and is supposed to beam Skroob up. Snotty also makes an appearance in the final episode, "Spidermawg".

In "Lars' Head", Steven returning to Earth is very similar to Worf, Garak, Martok and the real Dr. Julian Bashir getting rescued aboard the runabout from "By Inferno's Light".

In "Lars of the Stars", Lars and the Off-Colored Gems act just like the crew members of the Enterprise and the Enterprise-D from Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

In "Your Mother and Mine" and "Letters to Lars", Lars saying "Space, the final frontier" and "Captain's Log" is very similar to what James T.

"The Death of Superman"

Scene from "The Death of Superman"

In this 1985 story, Superman is thought to be dead from kryptonite exposure, and is "buried in space" by being placed in a container similar to a photon torpedo casing and ejected from the Guardians' ship, reminiscent of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

When she says that she doesn't even know what Warp Trek is, he responds as "And that, my little tribble, is why you must be destroyed!" In addition Control Freak's remote control makes the same sound as the original series transporter in all his appearances in the series.

The Titans on a Star Trek-style space adventure

In this two-part episode, the Titans go on a space-themed adventure which Robin wants to be like Star Trek, while the other Titans want the adventure to be more like Star Wars. Mainly parodying the rivalry between Star Trek and Star Wars, the episode also parodies many references from Star Trek such as Titans Tower becoming a starship with T-shaped warp nacelles, Robin doing a William Shatner impression when he acts like a starship captain, the Titans wearing uniforms that look like pajamas and Beast Boy wearing a red uniform that means he's expendable, finding an alien probe from a long dead race that lets people experience an entirely different life in only a few minutes and learn how to play an instrument and Robin calling Darkseid's plan to move planet Apokolips into a star system, which will cause obstructions and property values to plummet a con and yells "CONN!!!".

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003)

Michelangelo regularly imitates Montgomery Scott's accent when working on mechanical devices (e.g. "I need more power, cap'n!")

In one episode, when told a group of enemies are equipped with cloaking devices, Casey Jones exclaims "Cloaking device? What are they, Klingons?"

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012)

Space Heroes

In the 2012 series, Leonardo is a huge fan of Space Heroes, a cartoon show which is an obvious reference to Star Trek: The Original Series and is also reminiscent of Star Trek: The Animated Series in its animation style and he idolizes the main character, Captain Ryan, a parody of Captain Kirk as a great hero. The show featured phasers similar to the ones from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. The fifth season later featured a sequel to Space Heroes called Space Heroes: The Next Generation, which is an obvious reference to Star Trek: The Next Generation. The series also featured the voices of Kevin Michael Richardson, Clancy Brown, Jeffrey Combs, Phil LaMarr, Fred Tatasciore, Nolan North, Scott Menville, Ron Perlman, and Michael Dorn. Barry Gordon was also featured reprising his rolls of the 1987 series versions of Donatello and Bebop, as well as Cam Clarke reprising his rolls of the 1987 series versions of Leonardo and Rocksteady.

"Monkey Brains"

A poster appears for the movie Space Heroes III: The Resurrection of Mindstrong, an obvious reference to Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, the poster is even modeled after The Search for Spock's theatrical poster.

"It Came From The Depths"

Leonardo watches a Space Heroes episode where Captain Ryan's ship is invaded by cute, inconvenient furry creatures called Trumplets (an homage to the Tribbles, but with organic trumpets added) and gets hooked on their cuteness until he outgrows it and has them dumped into outer space. Raphael then tells him he's got to be the only person in the world who likes this show, to which Leonardo denies saying there are millions of "Space-niks", an obvious reference to Trekkies out there.

The X's

Spy Mrs. X wears a dress based on 1960's Star Trek female uniform.

Timon & Pumbaa

In the Raifiki Fables story, "Beauty and the Wildebeast", a female deer named Laura invites her new wilderbeast friend, Herman, to her upcoming birthday party. Laura's girlfriend tells her, "It's a birthday party, not Halloween!", spoofing Dr. McCoy's famous "I'm a doctor, not a..." line.

In another story, "Washington Applesauce", when a worm ate all the apples that belonged to a farmer. The farmer screams, "WOORRRRMM!!", the same way Admiral Kirk screamed "KHAAAAANNN!" in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Tiny Toon Adventures

The second episode "A Quack in the Quarks" is largely a parody of Star Wars, but the "elders" of an alien race that kidnaps Plucky Duck are closely modeled on the Talosians from the pilot episode of The Original Series.

An episode had the famous starship (commanded by Plucky Duck) looking for replacement hair for the captain's toupee (no doubt a joke on Shatner's alleged replacement hair). A notable line is, "I'm a doctor, not a barber!" Another episode featured caricatures of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy beaming down to a fast food restaurant to eat.

Frank Welker provided the voices for Furrball, Gogo Dodo, Calamity Coyote, Little Beeper, Byron Basset, Barky Marky, and Chewcudda.

Other voice work included:

The Transformers

This animated series made frequent use of Trek sound effects, most notably the classic "door sound" and parts of the transporter "beaming" sound.

In "The Return of Optimus Prime, Part 1", the character Wreck-gar (who speaks by parroting phrases of popular television shows and movies, Star Trek apparently one of them) says "I'm a doctor not a forklift!" and "He's dead, Jim".

Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015 cartoon)

At one point, Ratchet (voiced by Jeffrey Combs) references Star Trek's Doctor Leonard McCoy with an utterance of "I'm a medic, not an inventor!"

Tripping the Rift

Featuring Terry Farrell (pilot only).

Tripping the Rift was an CGI-animated series that was featured on the Sci-Fi Channel about a misfits starship crew traveling the universe. The coarse humor of the series relied heavily on parodying sci-fi, both in general and from specific universes. Unsurprisingly, Star Trek was heavily featured.

One of the main characters is a tall, slim, big-breasted woman named "6 of 9", a refence to Seven of Nine.

The intro features a radio-controled spaceship toy looking Trek-like. The model is updated later into the series. Transporters are used throughout the series, often after a request to "beam us up". The hero ship, the Jupiter 42, is said to have a warp core (though rift factors are mentioned instead of warp factors), photon torpedoes, and tractor beams. Dilithium crystals and cloaking devices are also occasionally mentioned.

One of the two major factions in the series is called the confederation" (or occasionally even just Federation), and seems modeled after Starfleet from Star Trek, but with a cultural current of conservative values and WASP American culture, as well as capitalist motives. Their crewmembers are clothed in yellow TOS-like costumes. The main confederation character, captain Adam (full name, Adam Franklin Shatner), has a speech pattern reminiscent of that of Kirk.

Beyond these influences in the general make-up of the show, numerous individual episodes also refer to Star Trek. Some of these were in the form of a couch gag where the ship's computer would say something different at the end of each episode's intro.

The pilot, "Love and Darph", starts with an intro animation very reminiscent of that of The Next Generation. When the hero ship first comes into view, only the part "Enterprise" of its name is seen, then revealed to be part of its full name, "Free Enterprise". (this name was changed later) It then goes on to show Chode (the main character) recording a captain's log, stardate and all. He starts talking about his five hour mission, before he is interrupted. Chode will go on to record captain's logs occasionally through the series.

The bridge ambience in Darph Bobo's ship emit the same ambience noises as the bridge of the refitted U.S.S. Enterprise from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

In "The Devil and a Guy Named Webster", Chode gets thrown out of his chair and wonders why captain's chairs aboard spaceships don't have seat belts.

In "2001 Space Idiocies", a prime directive not to interfere with primitive cultures is discussed.

In "Power to the Peephole", a movie called Debbie does the Delta Quadrant is mentioned.

A "Nimoy CD" is mentioned in the couch gag of "Nature vs. Nurture"

The couch gag of "Aliens, Guns & A Monkey" mentions dilithium crystals.

In the opening credits for "Cool Whip", the ship's computer openly wonders if anyone really cares that Star Trek: Enterprise was cancelled.

"You Wanna Put That Where?" shows an accident involving a ship resembling the original Enterprise, and a drunk character resembling Spock is shown made to walk on a straight line, but falling down and giving the Vulcan salute. It is remarked that "Doctor Phill says that the reason Vulcans drink so much is because they have so much trouble dealing with their emotions". T'Nuk also mentions having screwed a Vulcan once on Mount Seleya.

"Ghost Ship" has Six watching Leonard Nimoy presenting what appears to be an episode of "In Search of..." relevant to the episode plot, only for Nimoy to go off topic, talking about how his greatest fear is to spend the rest his life being associated with a character he played for three seasons.

In "Extreme Chode", Spock is again seen drunkenly giving the Vulcan salute, among a group of Confederation personnel at a sports bar. Later he appears to be unsuccessfully trying to give someone a nerve pinch.

In "Roswell", an alien accused her husband of having the IQ of a tribble's ass.

The episode "Chode & Bobo's High School Reunion" has a character called "Captain Jim", who appears to be an extremely seedy parody of captain Kirk. He travels in a ship highly reminiscent of the Enterprise, and his speech patterns are a exaggerated parody of those of Kirk.

In "Creaturepalooza", a sex tape is shown of Captain Adam and his wife Nancy, with Nancy urging him to "go Deep Space Nine".

"Chode's Near-Death Experience" has a sequence showing what would have happened if Chode was never born. In it, Six captains the ship, dressed in something resembling a movie era uniform and speaking with a Kirk-like accent (this show really likes that accent) , and Spock also served on the ship. They discuss the prime directive.

In "To eBay or Not to eBay", ukiyo-e painting appears in which Spock seems to have sex with a tentacled woman.

In "The Need for Greed", after Six takes over as captain, the crew adopts new uniforms which are Trek-like.

The cough gag for "Hollow Chode" has Bob wondering what Spock was always looking at in "that View-Master of his" (presumably this refers to his scope)

"Witness Protection" has a subplot about Bob in agonizingly boring conversation with a Starfleet-style starship. The ship talks about the good old days when ships still used to go where no man has gone before. Later it talks about how it never understood why the broads threw themselves at the captain. It speculates that this was all an act since "he and Scotty were a little light in the lithium crystals, if you know what I mean", further asking why he was always referring to his ship as a women, and what all that "she's gonna blow" talk was about. In a third scene, the ship complains about tribbles not being cute balls of fluff, but spacecraft crabs, claiming that he scratched for a month afterwards.

"The Son also Rises" has an Andorian-like alien judge: he is blue with Andorian-like antenna's, but has blonde hair.

The cough gag for "Battle of the Bulge" has Bob claiming he almost flew into James Doohan's ashes. Later in the episode, Chode, wanting to have sex with six, proposes that they'd "boldly go where no man has gone before... or at least we haven't".


Ultimate Spider-Man

A Keldon-class ship can also be seen in an episode. (citation needededit)

Uncle Grandpa

"Space Oddity"

Pizza Steve, Mr. Gus and Giant Realistic Flying Tiger's wear outfits that resemble the outfits from the 1960's Star Trek series, with Pizza Steve wearing a Geordi La Forge VISOR. Their starship also resembles the USS Horizon, but with elements of the USS Enterprise with the same bridge, and the episode is very similar to the 1960s Star Trek TV series.

U.S. Acres

In a U.S. Acres segment of Garfield and Friends, titled "Swine Trek", Orson Pig is bedridden with a cold. He dreams he is a starship captain (although the ship looks like the barn with nacelles attached) in the mold of Kirk, with his friends as the other crew members. Wade Duck is the doctor, Sheldon the science officer (with pointed ears attached to his shell), Lanolin is the communications officer, and Bo the chief engineer. Roy is the helmsman, wearing a martial arts outfit, and Booker is the navigator, speaking only Russian. The segment also features an elaborate theme song in the vein of The Original Series (complete with lyrics, which were written for The Original Series theme that were never used).

Orson and his crew of the starship USS Barnyard NX-62085 travel to the planet Deneb 92 after receiving a distress call. After landing on the planet, it is revealed that the evil Porkons (Gort, Wart, and Mort) made the call to lure Orson's crew there so they can test their new secret weapon out on them. The crew easily defeat the Porkons by pelting them with proton tomatoes, and they run off leaving the secret weapon behind. Orson brings it aboard the spaceship and Bo opens it, which releases a space virus that sickens the crew.

Orson wakes up from the dream then and realizes that his cold is gone. The rest of the gang then walk back in and state that they caught Orson's cold, but they don't blame him because he'd warned them earlier. Booker then advises Orson to stay away from them to avoid getting sick again, but Orson remedies this by donning a spacesuit to nurse them.

Booker, Sheldon, Bo, and Mort were all voiced by Frank Welker.



VeggieTales is a Christian children's animation which features two Star Trek parodies.

In the 1995 video "Are You My Neighbor," the segment "The Gourds Must Be Crazy" is based around a visit to a starship called the "U.S.S. Applepies" (with an appropriate dessert replacing the primary hull). The ship features a Scottish engineer named Scooter. In addition, in the 1997 video "Larry-Boy and the Fib from Outer Space," Jimmy and Jerry Gourd (who appeared as crew members of the Applepies) wear pointed ears. Later, in 2014, a sequel to the 1995 segment was released called "Veggies in Space: The Fennel Frontier".

The Venture Bros.

In the pilot, "The Terrible Secret of Turtle Bay", a wristband communications device is described as "Star Trek crap".

In the second season finale, "Showdown at Cremation Creek (Part I)", Hank puts on a fake goatee and says he looks like a "Mirror, Mirror" version of Hank.

The season 4 episode "Assisted Suicide" has Henchman 21 (Gary) and Dr. Mrs. The Monarch briefly talk about Star Trek after Gary makes a reference to tranya from "The Corbomite Maneuver".

In the season 5 premiere, "What Color Is Your Cleansuit?", the mutants post 94 Theses, half of which are said to be written in Klingon. Later in the episode, the Nomad probe makes an appearance in a quiz, it's origin story explained and the episode it appeared in name checked.

In "Venture Libre", Hanks notes the time using a stardate.

In the hour-long special "All This and Gargantua-2", Dr. Jonas Venture, Jr. wears Admiral James T. Kirk's uniform from Star Trek: The Motion Picture, with his company's logo in place of that of Starfleet. The episode also features an appearance of the movie-era red alert graphic when Gargantua-2's reactor begins to meltdown.


The Weekenders

One episode of the The Weekenders features the pizza place being called Deep Dish 9 (an obvious reference to Deep Space 9). There is also a sound effect from The Original Series and the waiter says "One Photon Tro-pizza, hold the dilithium." in a William Shatner impression. Also, the waiter's outfit resembles The Next Generation uniforms.

Regular voice work was provided by Jason Marsden and Grey DeLisle. Other voice actors included Jeff Glenn Bennett and Tara Strong.

The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

On a episode of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, when Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, and Christopher Robin were playing pirates, the arrangement of the theme of Star Trek: The Motion Picture is heard.

X-Men: Evolution

In episode 4, Cyclops tells Nightcrawler, a mutant with teleporting powers to "Set teleporter to maximum, Mr. Wagner!", "Aye, captain!", and "Engage!"


Young Justice

In the third season, dubbed Young Justice: Outsiders, Garfield Logan, aka Beast Boy, takes advantage of his powers to change into animals and is part of the principle cast of Space Trek: 3016, as Tork, which features many elements common with Star Trek: The Original Series. Space Trek: 3016 is a reference to Space Trek: 2022, featured in Teen Titans issue 50, in which Beast Boy also portrayed the character Tork. The title of both shows is styled after that of both Star Trek and Space: 1999.
