Seinfeld references to Star Trek

"The ultimate male fantasy..."





"Any time I see a movie or a TV show where there's people from the future, or another planet, they're all wearing the same thing".

"Somehow they decided, "This is going to be our outfit. " One piece silver jumpsuit, V-stripe and boots. That's it."

^Isn't that the same episode that Kramer's taking karate and talking about his katra?

Jason Alexander credits Shatner as his primary acting influence.

I'm not sure. I'll have to pull out the DVD's later.

Not Seinfeld, but Jason Alexander and Stephen Collins.

Of course, the real geek goldmine in Seinfeld is the plethora of (mostly Superman-related) superhero references. Somebody even named the Maestro "Bob Cobb"...Mon-El's secret identity in Smallville for his first appearance.

Jason Alexander once said that he could figure out which TOS episode he was watching within seconds of it appearing on screen after hearing just a few words of dialogue, by the color/appearance of whichever planet the E was orbiting, or by the background music.

I can pretty much do that with TNG.

About 2:00, "That was a hell of a thing, when Spock died." Probably the most emotion Jerry and George showed in the entire series.

George's barely-disguised elation when Susan died doesn't count?
