How often did Bones say something like "I am a doctor, not a xx", how many "redshirts" had to die and which episodes were featuring the multitalent Mr. Leslie? This and further questions, e.g. which other TV shows quoted Star Trek, should be answered here.

Since I am about to build this area up, the entries will be pretty incomplete at the beginning. That's why everything that is not marked explicitly as complete is incomplete!

The sources resp. the episode(s) are placed after each entry.


Love Interests (currently listed: 9)

Kirk has the reputation of being a galactic womanizer. Here the facts:

Kirk and his shirts

Episodes in which Kirk's shirt is torn (currently listed: 1)

Epsiodes featuring the green command shirt (currently listed: 5)

To make it easier to distinguish between the "good" and the "bad" Kirk in the episode "The Enemy Within" a second command shirt was created. Afterwards, the green tunic was used frequently because it looks too well to be wasted on one episode only.

Love Interests (currently listed: 1)


McCoy was the one with a rough outside but a warm heart inside. His verbal attacks are legend and often he used an expression like "I am a doctor, not a…". Even the later Series honoured him by using that quote. Furthermore, McCoy was often forced to diagnose: "He is dead, Jim", when a redshirt passed away.

McCoy is a doctor and not a ... (currently listed: 3)

He is dead, Jim! (currently listed: 6)

Star Trek mentioned in other TV or movie productions

Star Trek is a phenomenon that one can not avoid even if tried. :-): During the past decades Star Trek was quoted in various other movie and tv productions whereby most hints are directed at the original Series. That is reason enough to put a list here sorted by years (that will be extended as time goes by):


  • Back to the Future
    USA, Director: Robert Zemeckis
    Marty McFly wants to persuade his SF novel writing father and therefore pretends to be an alien. To do so, he puts his protective suit on, gave his father his first encounter with a walk man and finally he claims to come from a planet called Vulcan. In addition, he shows the Vulcan salute \\//


  • Crimson Tide
    USA, Director: Tony Scott
    The movie takes in place in a submarine. In a dangerous situation, a bridge officer quotes a Star Trek scene between Captain Kirk and Scotty in which Kirk demands full warp drive.

    USA, Director and Script: Quentin Tarantino
    At the beginning, Star Trek is quoted with "revenge is a dish best served cold" - old Klingon saying. During the movie itself, a woman's look is compared to the one of a bad guy in Star Trek (although there is no optical basis for that).
    Remark: In reality, the saying has it's origins in Italy but here, Star Trek is named as the source explicitly.

    USA, Director: Steven Spielberg
    Airport employee Officer Torris is a Star Trek fan and visits conventions dressed as Yeoman Rand (!). Later, she accepts a marriage proposal by showing the Vulcan salute first, then turning her hand to show the ring of engagement/marriage. - Funny detail: Zoë Saldaña, playing Officer Torres, will be Uhura in Star Trek XI to be expected in 2008/2008!
