During Josh's rant to the staffer at the end of the episode he makes a reference to "favorite galaxies" in the Star Trek Universe, but every Star Trek series takes place in our Milky Way Galaxy. Ironically, however, this piece of trivia proves Josh's point.
During his discussion with Leo about the pilot, Bartlet mentions firing the Ambassador to Brazil, but in "Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics" he actually fired the Ambassador to Bulgaria.
Bartlet: (screaming out of his lungs) There are big signs, you can't park there! They should get towed! I hope they get towed to Queens and the Triboro's closed and there's a big crafts show at Shea, a flea market, or a tractor show!
Sam: Where you going? What'd you settle on?
Sam: Excellent! I like to stay at the Hotel Beau Rivage, but I think that's gonna be a little pricey for you.
Will: Actually, I'm gonna stay at the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild at Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. It's not a hotel, I guess, quite so much as it's, well, a castle.
Sam: Yeah. This is a family connection?
Sam: All of Europe's a family connection for you isn't it?
Will: Parts of Asia.
Janice Trumbull (speaking about Star Trek): I'm not obsessed. I'm just a fan, and I care.
Josh Lyman : I'm a fan. I'm a sports fan, I'm a music fan, and I'm a Star Trek fan. All of them but here's what I don't do. Tell me if any of this sounds familiar. Let's list our 10 favorite episodes. Let's list our least favorite episodes. Let's list our favorite galaxies. Let's make a chart and see how often our favorite galaxies appear on our favorite episodes. What Romulan would you most like to see coupled with a Cardassian, and why? Let's spend a weekend talking about Romulans falling in love with Cardassians and then let's do it again? That's not being a fan. That's having a fetish, and I don't have a problem with that except you can't bring your hobbies into work. OK?
Janice: Got it.
Josh: Except on Star Trek holidays.
Janice: There's no such thing as a Star Trek holiday!
Josh: Well work hard around here. We'll make one.
Bartlet: There's a huge sign! They should be towed!
Josh: Tell me your aide's name. I'll ask her out; we'll double.
Jack: Chief Petty Officer Harold Wendell.
Josh: I got the fuzzy end of that lollipop.
Josh:The thing is, she isn't just any pilot. She's like Jackie Robinson. She's busted a lot of barriers. She's the first woman at Miramar, first woman to fly the F-14 Tomcat, she teaches on an F-14. I guess at this point I don't have to give you her resumé.
Fitzwallace: No. But could you tell me more about Jackie Robinson and breaking barriers?
