page=961 #2 The guy in the rear row looks like Spock. Undoubtedly there are more homages in the audience that I missed.

Looks like Spock to me too.

On page 957 the doctor holding the mirror in last panel is a ringer for R. Heinlein.

Actually that is an homage to Alastair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart.

Uh, anyone seen the recent Little Caesar's commerical pushing their "hot and ready" pizza with the guy calls and is put on hold.  He looks like I kind of image Seamus did before his rejuve issue at the start of the story.

In panel 2 of page 942, the middle bloke talking to Farnsworth looks suspiciously like Andy Capp.

Now that skulls are about to be duggered, there has been a demandrequest to reactivate this topic.
Whatsoever, for any cause, seeketh to take or give
  Power above or beyond the Laws, suffer it not to live.
Holy State, or Holy King, or Holy People's Will.

On page 8, Nicole's old boss is Mr. Spacely of Spacely Sprockets.

The front of the saucer of the USS Enterprise is part of Seamus's  amalgamated structure on page 15.

Sorry if these have been mentioned elsewhere.

is it just me, or does "Hugh Galveston" bear a slight resemblance to Peter Capaldi?

The non-canon script says "...and in the middle is a strangely familiar-looking android. "  I don't know.

earthwirehead on May 04, 2015, 05:29:16 pm
maybe it's just the pose/wardrobe....

I'd say it's entirely possible:

I have a nagging feeling that there's somebody *else* that he reminds me of, but I can't put my finger on whom.

page=929, 962 "Treaty of Tycho" is more than likely a "Men in Black" reference.

page=941 #5, Another Scott cameo.

Does the Gaelic farewell on page 1090 count as a Star Trek homage?

Only if you explain.

so "Mair fada agus rathúil" ~= "Live long and prosper" in Gaelic

Good catch!
