  • The Enterprise is seen among various other ships in the docking bay of the Academy.
  • On page 20 of the Galactic Inquirer there's an ad for a device called "the Teacher", created by "KARA, Inc." on "Sigma Draconis." The line at the top says "Perform Brain Surgery at Home." This is a reference to the original Star Trek episode "Spock's Brain"[1]
  • The planet in the background of the rotunda is called "Vulcan", in reference to Star Trek. The planet Vulcan is Spock's home planet.
  • The title of the game is a reference to The Next Generation

Space Quest 6Edit

  • The SCS DeepShip 86 is a parody of the Deep Space 9
  • A Star Trek TNG shuttlecraft can be seen in the docking bay
  • The Bjorn seen mostly in the demo are a parody of the Borg. They are described as "assimilating" everyone, which the Borg tend to do. They also arrive in a cube-like ship. The Borg also use a cube ship (although the Bjorn Cube is an M.C. Escher impossible object, whereas the Borg Cube is just a cube).

  • Star Trek XVIII is one of the movies displayed on the marquee on Polysorbate LX.
  • Beleauxs' books in the lab include "The Hunt for Red Corpuscle" (The Hunt for Red October) and "All I Need to Know I Learned from the Q Continuum" - the Q Continuum is the being-place for the Q entity in Star Trek TNG and DS9.
  • A graffiti on the wall outside the arcade on Polysorbate LX reads "DARMOK+JALOD 4EVER". A reference to the Star Trek: TNG episode, "Darmok".
  • 8-Rear is a spoof on 10-Forward, the ship's lounge on "Star Trek: The Next Generation".
  • Drinks in Boot Liquor include Star Beck (a spoof on "Star Trek"; the slogan for this beer is "it makes you go where no man has gone before", a spoof on the wellknown Star Trek opening monologue) and Major Kirin (Major Kira from Star Trek DS + Kirin is also a Japanese alcoholic beverage)
  • A graffiti in the brig on the DeepShip 86 reads "Sarek Lies!", in reference to Star Trek, where one of the characters is a Vulcan named Sarek.
  • When talking to the brig replicator, Roger will say: "Tea. Earl Grey. Hot," in reference to Captain Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
  • The Vulgar nervegrip is obviously a spoof on the Vulcan nervegrip that Spock so often uses in the original Star Trek series.
