Enterprise Easter Egg - Pilot Character Names
In 'Broken Bow', the pilot episode of 'Enterprise', there are several character names.
Three of the characters that send the Enterprise crew on their first mission into space are Admirals Forrest, Williams and Leonard,
named for the stars of the original Star Trek series - William Shatner (Kirk), Leonard Nimoy (Spock) and DeForest Kelley (McCoy). Since the crew represent Earth's pioneers, this is a tip of the hat to the three that started off Star Treks popularity.
Also, first contact with a Klingon is made by a character called Famer Moore, who shoots him with a plasma shotgun. He is named for writer Ronald D. Moore, who wrote a lot of the Klingon-heavy stories in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space 9, such as the Next Generation episodes 'Redemption' and 'Reunion'.
