There's a Trek-as-TV reference in The Rings of Time, when Zoe speculates about "sexy green girls."
Well, in-universe that could be a reference to other science fiction, since ST never had a monopoly on green alien women. After all, it's a natural extension of the "little green men" trope that's been around since the early 20th century. There was a green alien temptress who appeared in two Lost in Space episodes, for example.

With all the Yoyodyne references sprinkled about on dedication plaques can we make V and The Crying of Lot 49 fit? Could Trystero have played a role in the founding of Section 31?
Well, those are meant more as references to Buckaroo Banzai, which in turn referenced Yoyodyne.
