South Park Easter Egg - South Park and Star Trek

1) An entire episode of South Park (the Planetarium episode) is based on an episode of Star Trek:TOS ("Dagger of the Mind")

2) The South Park Episode "The City On The Edge of Forever" (the one with the kids in the bus, and all the flashbacks) is named after a Star Trek:TOS episode of the same name, and has allusions to the "Red Shirt Always Dies" Star Trek Joke.

3) The South Park Episode about The Stations Of The Cross, hears Kyle and Stan conversing about The Wrath Of Khan. ("the needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few...")

I am almost certain that there are more allusions to Star Trek in South Park .. is it possible Tray Parker and Matt Stone are big Star Trek fans?? We may never know . . hehehe

There is also the Halloween episode with alternate realities with the evil pet fish. This is based on the episode Mirror, Mirror (pretty sure that's the name) from TOS. The beard that Evil Cartman is wearing is the same one as Evil Spock.

in response to the comment about the "Wacky Molestation Adventure" being a reference to a Star Trek episode... I've never seen the Star Trek episode so I can't verify that, but I thought it seemed like a parody of Stephen King's "Children of the Corn," in which a couple driving through Nebraska comes upon a town where the children have killed all the adults. One of the evil kids, (either Isaac or Malachi) yell "Outlander!" often. The King reference is also seen where the kindergarten kids say "now we want to play with youuuuu" which sounds nearly exactly the same as evildead Gage in "Pet Sematary."

In the Starvin Marvin in Space episode, on the UFO, the beeping sounds are from consoles in The Next Generation. And when they bring the Ethopians to Marklar, Kyle says "...please let these people LIVE LONG AND PROSPER on your planet.."

In the Homeschooling episode, the scene where Kyle explains love to the homeschooled girl is almost entirely taken from a similar scene in the ST:TOS episode "The Apple".

Ok 007, here goes, in the original series there were three kinds of uniform, red, blue and gold, these represented security, science and command respectively. In the original series Captain Kirk used to accompany the teams on away missions, that is he would take a team of people off of the enterprise and onto, say a new planet or something along those lines, the away team usually consisted of captain kirk spock and some people who were specifically suited to the kind of mission, like they may bring down some geologists to study rocks and stuff like that, occasionally the away team would also contain several security officers, usually characters whom had never been seen before on the show,(Wearing the red shirts)if you ever saw these security officers you knew that in some way or fashion they would be killed.

It should be obvious to Star Trek fans that Stone & Parker are big Star Trek fans. There seems to be a reference to the shows and movies in almost every episode. If its not a plot or character (little kid in red shirt), its the sound effects or music. The episode where the kids run the adults out of town by claiming to have been molested? That was a parody of the episode "Miri," where Kirk & crew find a planet of children but no adults. Even the "outlander" parodies Kirk by his speech pattern.

There are more Star Trek references in South Park... In the episode where Jesus fights Satan, and Stan says the quote "Don't try to be a great man, just be a man..." is from Star Trek: First Contact - Stan actually says he heard the quote on Star Trek. Also, in the Dodge-ball episode, Cartman says something to Chef about "Ahab has to get his whale.." The same thing was said in the film Star Trek: First Contact about Captain Picard.

This is only a reference to Star Trek because Star Trek took it from somewhere else... In "Worldwide Recorder Concert", at the end when Mr. Garrison gets on the bus to go back to Colorado, he tells the bus driver, "Second star to the right... and straight on till morning." That's what Captain Kirk said at the end of Star Trek VI. But of course that line first came from the novel "Peter Pan."

In the episode "Wing" the fountain the boys buy for their office is the same one seen in the Star Trek TOS pilot "The Cage" that Vina dances around when in the guise of an Orion slave girl.

Actually, Patrick Stewart, who is playing Captain Picard in StarTrek TNG, also played Ahab in the movie "Moby Dick". I guess that makes it a double egg...

If you have the more early south park seasons, you'll know that Trey Parker and Matt Stone talk before the episodes. Well before that episode, they say its a star trek reference.

I’m surprised no one notices that Mr. Garrison second hand puppet Mr Twigs wears a Star Trek Original series jersey …(you see the small “Enterprise” Boomerang geometric insignia on the left of Mr Twigs shirt FYI at to Star Trek and the Red shirts… The Star Ship “Enterprise” was named after the Real Aircraft Carrier “Enterprise” ..the different color jersey idea in Star Trek comes from real aircraft carrier deck crews who wear different color jersey depending on there job Also Star Trek Boomerang geometric insignia for Star Fleet was in the Original series was only for “Enterprise” other Star ships each had there own geometric insignia…This also comes from real WW2 Carrier ships each had there own geometric insignia to mark there ships aircraft

In the episode "Something you can do with your finger" where Cartman forms a boy band called FingerBang, there is a scene where Stan's dad is trying to convince him not to be in the band, and his dad yells out "No! Nooooooooo!" and smashes his head into a glass cabinet. This is obviously taken from Star Trek - First Contact where Picard gets angry at Lilly and smashes the display cabinet with his phaser rifle.

In South Park Volume 6 DVD befor each of the 4 shows it has the two guys. In "Roger Ebert Should Lay Off The Fatty Foods"(the planetarium one) they say befor it that they are big star treck fans and it is bassed off a star treck episode. Then when the counsler guy dose a MIND MELD it tips it off even more.

In regards to the first episode of season four, the episode is spilt between the star trek story about time travel and the star wars story with Mr. Garrison: the whole 'finding yourself' that mr. Garrison goes through is identical to Luke with Yoda's training. Even the music when mr. garrison goes into the tree is from star wars.

The Homeschooling episode contained a scene taken from "The Gamesters of Triskelion", the including incidental music (nice touch). I won't describe the scene in detail as it would spoil the effect of the realization of what scene it is. But it is a scene that would be with Kirk and his trainer.
