Heroes kicked off its third season tonight on NBC. Over the past two seasons the show has featured a number of references to another NBC show, Star Trek. Tonight in the "Countdown to Heroes" special, Zachary Quinto (the new Spock) helped introduced a video segment on the Trek/Heroes homages, see video below.
…and yes they did leave out a few things, including Nichelle Nichols and Dominic Keating. More on the connections between Trek and Heroes at the Heroes Wiki.

Shat is back
Another show that loves to make Star Trek references was back tonight. Boston Legal, staring William Shatner, returned for its final season. No overt Trek references, but Bill was seen in some kind of vessel and in uniform.
