    Maybe its just there as an easter egg for us nerds to find.

    Just repeat to yourself "its just a show, I should really just relax".

    What's R2D2 doing on the wall of an Egyptian tomb?

    Why are there actually any landing platforms and ships in there?

    I assume they might need them for the mining process. Transporting ore and miners back and forth.

    It's called an "in-joke." They're made on occasion. For instance, the Millennium Falcon was amongst the Federation starships doing battle with the Borg cube during the Battle of Sector 001 in Star Trek: First Contact. And the original U.S.S. Enterprise has appeared in the far background a number of times in Battlestar Galactica.

    Don't take it too seriously. Consider it "non-canon" if you like. :)

    TNG was full of that sort of thing -- lots of sly visual gags and references to all sorts of things. A partial list may be found here. There were more in DS9 and Voyager.

    I strongly suspect that he wasn't the only "guilty" party.

    And the neat thing is, the hangar bay with the Jellyfish and the Vulcan landers was all filmed inside the TARDIS. Wondrous machine, that blue box...
