- Astro Quest, featured in Season 9's A Space Oddity, is obviously heavily based on Star Trek. Like ST, it takes place in the future and features a crew aboard a starship exploring space. It also features a hostile alien race (Klingons in ST, Vellikons in AQ), a fictional language (Klingon in ST, Vellikon in AQ), a doctor with a famous catchphrase (Dr McCoy's "I'm a doctor, not a ___" in ST, Corpsman Scully's "I'm not a ___, I'm a doctor/corpsman, dammit!" in AQ) and environments similar to Star Trek's.
