Star Trek Refrences in the Characters
- Jason Nesmith
Like Captain Kirk, Nesmith looses his shirt often. He also has an ego problem and tries to be flurty with Gwen, like Kirk does to almost every girl on Star Trek.
- Gwen DiMarco
Gwen parodies almost every woman in the Star Trek universe (at least the ones from the federation). She does the communications on the NSEA Protector therefore she is like the character of Uhura. She wears tighter outfits as does Deanna Troi from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
- Alexander Dane
Sir Dane, is an old Shakespearian Actor (which may be poking fun at Patrick Stewart and his role as Captain Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation). His common quote "By Grabthar's hammer, by the sons of Warvan, You shall be avenged." is a joke on Spock's "Live Long and Prosper."
- Fred Kwan
His parody comes from the character of Scotty from the original Star Trek series. Like Scotty, Kwan is the ship's engineer. He is very relaxed in the film and always enjoys the weird experiences everyone else hates, Like being transported to the NSEA Protector.
- Tommy Webber
His similarity to Star Trek is the character of Westly Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
- Guy Fleegman
Guy, also known as Crewman Number 6, is based on the many expendable crewmen from the original Star Trek series. In the first ending to the movie he is actually the only member of the crew to survive... Therefore when the show resumes he becomes part of the new cast (for more infromation of Expendable crewmen see Red Shirts.
