Watch: Star Trek Shows Up On New Family Guy, Doctor Who & SNL October 3, 2011

by Staff , Filed under: Great Links,Trek Franchise , trackback

A new TV season is upon us and already Star Trek is popping up here and there. See below for video clips of the latest Trek incursions into Family Guy, Doctor Who, and Saturday Night Live.


Family Guy premiere starts with Trek

Seth MacFarlane is a huge Star Trek fan so it is no surprise that he started the 10th season of Family Guy with another Star Trek gag, with Star Trek II "for goats." Watch it.

Star Trek on Who

Last weekend’s Doctor Who injected a bit of Star Trek to the light-hearted episode ("Closing Time"), watch it.

Mr. Spock on SNL

Over the weekend Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly, Bridesmaids) guest hosted Saturday Night Live and she sported a Mr. Spock sweatshirt in a skit about an overly enthusiastic member of a food tasting focus group. Check it out.

Star Trek is, of course, everywhere!

2. EM - October 3, 2011

SNL Rocks!!

3. Horatio - October 3, 2011

#1 – Everywhere except our local cinema!

4. Horatio - October 3, 2011

BTW, I don’t really like the SNL skit. It just promotes further stereotyping of Trek fans as obnoxious, overweight and socially inept.

5. CmdrR - October 3, 2011

Where was the goat edit?? The clip seemed like it always is.

6. Keachick (rose pinenut) - October 3, 2011

Oh dear. Hulu strikes again. I could only watch the second one – Dr Who. I like Matt Smith. Actually I’ve liked all the new Dr Who’s – Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and now Matt Smith. Love the (positive) reference to Star Trek. As it should be!

7. Jesustrek - October 3, 2011

@ 1 Yeah Star Trek is, of course, everywhere! ;)

8. Craiger - October 3, 2011

I think its funny how the Doctor can understand babies.

9. dmduncan - October 3, 2011

Saw that. Loved how it ended. The SNL skit on people who anonymously post nasty things at others on the internet was funny too.

10. JeFF - October 3, 2011

#4, oh come ON guy, I don’t think that’s true here at all! She doesn’t even mention Trek in the skit, and to be honest, she’s quite a funny gal. Her SNL appearance was awesome, and if she happens to be a Trek fan, I’d be delighted to have her aboard.

There are plenty of obnoxious, overweight, and socially inept Trek fans. Probably too many, but who cares?? It’s a truth I’m fine with (I’m of the skinnier variety myself :), and I’m still glad to be a part of the community.

I was laughing my a$$ of at this skit. Lighten up and stop being a victim. Really… it’s okay.

11. T'Cal - October 3, 2011

I feel so foolish. I keep asking for more Trek on TV and it’s everywhere. I guess I’m just selfish wanting more than the briefest, albeit funny Trek reference on a few comedies…


12. PEB - October 3, 2011

cant stop laughing at the ranch exploding on her face! melissa is a pretty hilarious chick.

13. Captain Andrew Bryce - October 3, 2011

Since a few of us can’t see the hulu vid, what exactly was the Trek reference on Family Guy?

14. Anthony Thompson - October 3, 2011

Can’t see Family Guy (though I was treated to several ads). SNL skit not funny.

15. Scott - October 3, 2011

SNL skit was great, forget that she’s wearing a Spock shirt, it was still funny.

16. EM - October 3, 2011

8 – Yeah, that’s funny. : “Not the mommy”

17. C Mosenko - October 3, 2011

Remember Loveboat The Next Generation on SNL making fun of ST: TNG

18. RJinCA - October 3, 2011

13 – Peter, Chris and Brian are watching “Star Trek II – The Wrath of Khan (edited for goats)”. Classic TWOK scene, Kirk yells KHAAAAAAANNNN, but they dub a goat bleat instead. They played the actual movie clip (not animated), and the timing was really spot-on, good for a brief laugh.

19. Khan was Framed! - October 3, 2011

SNl sketch was hilarious!

Sadly this is the majority of Trekkies; attend any convention & you’ll see about 1000 of her.

20. VZX - October 4, 2011

19: Yes, I’ve been to just one convention and all the female Trek fans look like her but are no where near as funny.

21. Doug - October 4, 2011

Always hate it when I miss a new Family Guy, that was damn funny… will pick it up late next Sunday. I guess I could use the DVR for more than recording Star Trek re-runs

22. Horatio - October 4, 2011

#10 – Hey, not a victim at all. I just don’t like how they had to put a Spock sweatshirt on her, thats all. Yes it was funny – but why couldn’t they have put a Jets jersey on her instead?

23. Bruce Banner - October 4, 2011

If she wasn’t over weight we wouldn’t be having this conversation. So if someone is over weight, no one wants to be associated with them in any way. How Un-Trek like.

24. Keachick (rose pinenut) - October 4, 2011

Melissa McCarthy can wear any T-shirt she likes. The fact that she chose to wear a shirt with Spock on it is way cool.

25. Shaun - October 4, 2011

@ 24

agreed! she’s great!

26. D. Moon - October 4, 2011

the snl skit was sad and really disgusting.

27. dwfan - October 5, 2011

I thought the SNL clip was pretty funny. My favorite part of that skit was the touchdown pass to herself. CRACKED ME UP. The only part I didn’t like was the big ranch dressing explosion. It was kinda overkill.

28. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - October 5, 2011

Loved the SNL skit!! although nothing related to star trek besides the shirt.

29. ironhyde - October 6, 2011

There was also one I noticed in the Season 2 premiere of Orci and Kurtzman’s Hawaii Five-0 reboot. Masi Oka, the guy from Heroes who now plays a sort of consultant in Five-0, very deliberately displays the new model of Enterprise on his keychain. is represented by Gorilla Nation.
