Star Trek: The Next Generation Easter Egg - Anime In-Jokes
Note: all credit goes to Antonia Levi! All blame for errors goes to me...
A large number of people associated with Star Trek are Anime otaku (Japanimation freaks, for the rest of you) and like to include small Anime in-jokes in the scripts, at least to Next Generation. One good one is the name of the Enterprise's sister ship- the Yamato (reference to Star Blazers, aka Space Cruiser Yamato). (The real Yamato was a WWII battleship.) In one episode- forgive me but I don't know the name- there's a calligraphy of background scrolls in one scene, and they spell out the names of Urusei Yatsura's main characters.
One more interesting tidbit, two ships named the Kei and the Yuri (the names of the Lovely Angels/Dirty Pair) made a brief appearance once.
