Despite Matt Groening's admission during one of the Commentaries that he'd never seen a whole episode, many writers and other production staff are big fans of Star Trek. As a result, Futurama has been packed full of references to the Trek franchise. While some references are less obvious, such as games of 3D Scrabble, 3D Pac-Man and 3D Chess, there are some more obvious references such as cameos from former Star Trek cast members or the entire episode "Where No Fan Has Gone Before".
