Star Trek Movie has Cool Callbacks (Spoilers)

One of my favorite things about the new Star Trek movie is the callbacks to previous films and episodes. All are done in a subtle way, not in the George Lucas way.


From memory

Star Trek VI: the Klingon blood globules are emulated by the way the red matter appears.

Star Trek V: thankfully nothing

Star Trek IV: The Romulan Wessles joke is remembered when Checkov tries to work the intercraft, also Spock giving Scotty a formula that he invented in another timeline.

Star Trek III/VI/Generations: Kirk often finds himself hanging off a cliff.

Star Trek II: the Kobayaski Maru, and Kirk's eating an apple.

Star Trek I: Admiral Pike's uniform

The Cage: Pike's wheelchair

Where No Man: a planet named Delta Vega

Also I liked seeing Admiral James Komack.
