    • A few more references are: The episode's title is close to the 3rd/4rd Star Trek episode "Where no MAN has gone before". Of course the nacelles of the Planet Express ship. The first lines of the episode are "Shatner's log, airdate unknown. The impossible has happened…" is almost the same as Williams Shatner's very first lines ever in Star Trek. We first see Fry looking like Captain Pike from Star Trek TOS. The two guys dressed up as Cherons (black and white faced guys) at the church of Trek. When the missile is shot to Omega 3 with all Star Trek stuff, it's the same shot from Star Trek 2 The Wrath Of Khan when Spock's coffin is shot to the Genesis planet. Fry asks Chekov to say nuclear wessels refers to Star Trek 4. Melllvar resembles a number of different Star Trek episodes. Ambassador Sarek's Trivia Challenge is Spocks father's name, Sarek of course. Khan was marooned on Ceti Alpha 5 in the original series episode "Space Seed". William Shatner yelling "KHAN" from Star Trek 2. The Planet Express ship firing its phasers same as the Enterprise from Star Trek TOS. Nichelle says she had to kiss Williams Shatner in the 3rd season, which was the first interracial kiss on TV, very big for the time. Leonard Nimoy use's a Vulcan neck pinch on Bender. Melllvar's ship looks like a Romulan ship. When Melllvar's mother shows up in the end is a call to Star Trek TOS episode The Squire of Gothos. And of course the credits with the pictures from the episode and Star Trek music is the same as The Original Series except for the last picture.
