Star Trek references in Heroes
On Monday night’s Heroes episode, they showed a license plate for a car that drove George Takei around in the episode. He played Hiro’s dad, but in this one shot they showed the license plate of the car. I didn’t see it at first, but Liz noticed it briefly and got all excited. So the next day we downloaded the episode and check and sure enough, there it was. The license plate read, NCC 1701. Very cute, and a nice tribute to a Star Trek character in the show. They have made references to Star Trek before in the first few episodes in scenes with Hiro.
