Over the weekend Star Trek references showed up on a few TV shows. The biggest was yet another Trek gag on last night’s Family Guy, but Trek worked its way into American Dad and Smallville as well. Below we have details, screenshots and links to all the clips.
Trek gag on Family Guy
Last night’s Family Guy had yet another extended Star Trek gag, only two episodes since their last Trek gag. This time the butt of the joke was Spock, who just got lucky. (via Hulu, only available in US)
More quick Trek nods on American Dad and Smallville
Seth MacFarlane’s other show American Dad also had a quick Star Trek gag last night. Stan was explaining to his wife that after he died he was going to be frozen and "make a face like Han Solo…in Star Trek". Watch the clip below (via Hulu, only available in USA).
On Friday’s episode of Smallville "Warrior", Clark, Lois and the gang visited a Comic Con like event called "MetCon". The scene had a lot of Star Wars references, including Lois dressed as a storm trooper, but after she did a quick costume change she flashed a Vulcan sign and said "stop gawking and prosper" to the fanboys waiting outside the bathroom.
