Yes, of course I meant Next Generation. It's my favourite ST show, too. I can't believe I messed it up, I feel silly AF now.>References like what?
Well, they seem to be blink-and-you-miss-it things, but also if I watched the whole show again without blinking I'd miss'em becsuse I don't know Urusei Yatsura. They reference other anime too, some that I knew when I watched Next Generation, but I didn't catch any. There were hidden things.
But I mean, if someone tells you the writers of a Star Trek show were massive nerds who watched anime even when anime was very obscure in America I don't think you'll die of shock.
