Lots of call-outs in Star Trek: Lower Decks

I’m really starting to enjoy Star Trek: Lower Decks. This week’s episode, “Veritas” was particularly fun. Because I have too much time on my hands, I decided to count the obscure references to previous Star Trek Episodes. This isn’t just fan service, this is a whole fan buffet:

  1. Alien courtroom: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
  2. Roga Danar: TNG The Hunted
  3. Khan: TOS Space Seed
  4. Vineyards: TNG Brothers
  5. Soul Food Restaurants: DS9 Homefront
  6. Romulan Bird of Prey: TOS Balance of Terror
  7. Fan Dance: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
  8. Mark Twain with a gun: TNG Time’s Arrow
  9. Tasha & The Garbage Bag: TNG Skin of Evil
  10. Gorn: TOS Arena
  11. Remans: Star Trek Nemesis
  12. Q the Judge: TNG Encounter at Farpoint
  13. Salt Vampire: TOS Mantrap
  14. Giant Spock: TAS The Infinite Vulcan
  15. Scottish Ghost Lamp: TNG Sub Rosa
  16. Drumhead: TNG The Drumhead
  17. voice actor Kenneth Mitchell: DIS Battle at the Binary Stars

That’s a lot for a 21-minute episode. Can’t wait for next week! 🙂
