For their holiday episode this year, The Simpsons went into the future where we can see how things turn out for Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa. And this Simpsons future is full of nods to Star Trek. The episode is now available online, see clips below.
Simpsons go Star Trek
The holiday episode of the Simpsons "Holidays of Future Passed" took the Simpsons family into a future where Bart is a divorced dad, Lisa is married to Millhouse, and Maggie is a Lady Gaga like rock star soon to be a single mom. The future was also full of Star Trek gags. And here they are (via Hulu, sorry non USA people):
Bart’s apartment (as his old school) includes a transporter:
Homer’s holographic book has been Borgified (look closely)
Dr. Hibbert gets a cool Geordi VISOR:
And the dog and the cat have evolved into what appear to be Talosians. Also note the Simpsons Christmas Card has mention of Rigel VII (from Star Trek and home planet of ubiquitous Simpsons aliens Kodos and Kang).
Enterprise in previous week’s episode
The holiday episode made two weeks in a row for Star Trek gags on The Simpsons. The previous week’s episode (The Ten-Percent Solution) had a quick glimpse of the USS Enterprise at the Museum of TV.
