      The plot of this episodes is pretty much a direct play on the classic Star Trek episode Amok Time (1967), in which Spock must return to his home planet Vulcan for a mating ritual, and Kirk must fight him as Fry does Dr. Zoidberg in this episode. In a great reference, the c, oft-used "fight music" from that episode is even used here, as the national anthem of Zoidberg's home planet! Also, the Lobster frenzy looks like the lake-like Great Link of the Founders, from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
