      Theme played with the video game during the first scene.
      Fry comments on the door being "just like on Star Trek."
      Leonard 'Spock' Nimoy that he no longer does the Vulcan 'live long and prosper' sign.
      The whole Head Museum concept is, possibly, a subtle reference to the original Star Trek series episode 'Return To Tomorrow' where the alien minds were preserved in glowing spheres.
      Several sound effects used within the episode also. All of these are direct references to the Star Trek series.
