Star Trek: Lower Decks Episode 8 Easter Eggs & References

  • A Jem’Hadar fighter (Deep Area 9)
  • A Ferengi shuttle (TNG and DS9)
  • A D-7 or Ok’Tinga class Klingon Battlecruiser (TMP, TOS, TNG, DS9, and, technically, Discovery)
  • A number of Federation shuttlecraft (Largely TNG period)
  • A basic TOS shuttlecraft
  • The Vulcan touchdown ship from First Contact.
  • A Tholian ship (“The Tholian Net,” “In a Mirror, Darkly.”)
  • And…one thing that appears just like the Monolith from 2001: A Area Odyssey.

Romulan Chicken of Prey

The ship that’s stolen, and later utilized by Ransom and Tendi, is a basic TOS-era Romulan Chicken-of-Prey. Previous to this episode of Decrease Decks this type of Romulan ship has solely been seen in canon three different instances: Within the TOS episodes “Steadiness of Terror” and “The Enterprise Incident,” and within the Picard episode “Absolute Candor.” That mentioned, the Chicken-of-Prey in “The Enterprise Incident” was digitally inserted into the remastered “Enterprise Incident” in 2008. So, actually, this ship has solely appeared in canon in 1968, 2008, and twice in 2020.

Federation Guard

Additionally voiced by Kenneth Mitchell, the Federation Guard has safety armor and a helmet harking back to the sorts of outfits safety guards wore in The Movement Image, The Search For Spock, and The Undiscovered Nation.

Fan Dance

Jax tells Rutherford to “to a fan dance,” to distract the guard. This references Uhura doing a dance with feathery followers on Nimbus III in Star Trek V: The Remaining Frontier. In that case, the fan dance solely bought Kirk and Spock some horses. 

Does Philips know the TNG crew?

The chief engineer of the Cerritos, Philips, makes two references to TNG episodes when he’s working out of oxygen. He says “Mark Twain’s bought a gun!” and “Tasha No! The rubbish bag’s behind you!” The Twain factor references Mark Twain pulling a gun on the TNG crew in “Time’s Arrow.” And the Tasha remark appears to reference “Pores and skin of Evil,” when a creature who you may name a “rubbish bag” did kill Tasha Yar.

Gorn Wedding ceremony

Does the Gorn marriage ceremony depend as an Easter egg? Contemplating we’ve by no means seen this many Gorn (Gorns?) in a single place, ever, this looks like sure, this counts as an Easter egg. Additionally, if the shuttle crashlanded throughout a Gorn marriage ceremony, does that imply they crashlanded on Cestus III, a planet the Gorn took over within the TOS episode “Area?”
