Star Trek is a science fiction television and film franchise, set between 2151 and 2379 A.D. The franchise has spanned forty years, six series, and eleven films. Some of the various television series have aired on NBC. Hiro and Ando are big fans of the show--Hiro more so than Ando.

Genesis

When Hiro first discovers his powers at Yamagato, he states that he will be able to bend space and teleport. Ando comments that it's like the transporter on Star Trek. Hiro tells Ando, "I broke the space-time continuum!", a phrase made popular in the Star Trek: The Next Generation series. Ando comments that Hiro's "powers beyond any mere mortal" are like Spock's. He then suggests that Hiro use his Vulcan death grip when he is dragged back to his desk by his boss.

Later, after getting bounced from a karaoke bar for teleporting into the women's bathroom, Hiro expresses his desire to be different as "I wanna boldly go where no man has gone before". This is from the opening monologue of Star Trek, and was eventually revealed to be a quote from Zefram Cochrane's speech at the opening of the Warp 5 Complex. Later, Ando sarcastically says to Hiro, "Beam us up, Scotty!".

Don't Look Back

Hiro shows Ando 9th Wonders!, Issue #14, which depicts the conversation in which Hiro tells Ando he wants to "boldly go where no man has gone before."

Later, Hiro again compares his teleportation ability to Star Trek's transporters while speaking to the NYPD detectives investigating the murder of Isaac Mendez in the future. The detective thinks it's funny, since he's seen all the Star Trek television series and doesn't recall seeing Hiro in any of them. Hiro then offers the detective the Vulcan salute.

Fallout

Hiro repeats his Vulcan salute when he meets Isaac in Midland at the Burnt Toast Diner.

Distractions

Kaito Nakamura's limo's license plate reads, "NCC-1701". This is the service number for the USS Enterprise. (Incidentally, George Takei was an original cast member of Star Trek.)

Run!

Hope calls Hiro "Sulu" just before she punches him in the face. Later, Hiro gives Steve Gustavson the Vulcan salute and says, "I come in peace."

Unexpected

Hiro and Ando part ways with the Vulcan salute.

How to Stop an Exploding Man

Ando reminds Hiro that his whole life he talked about his favorite stories of heroes he wanted to be, Star Trek being part of those heroes.

Cold Wars

When Nathan tells Danko that he wants Peter caught with "no bloodshed", Danko orders his men saying, "Phasers on stun."

Cold Snap

Hiro and Ando believe that Matt Parkman's infant son might actually be Matt Parkman. Wondering how such a thing could have occurred, Hiro explains that on The Next Generation, a transporter accident caused something similar to happen.

Thanksgiving

After Damian lays his hands on Hiro, Hiro says, "Beam me up, Scotty," and disappears.

Upon This Rock

Hiro, whose "fanboy brain" has been "stirred up" by Damian, tells a ramen vendor that he is a "humble knight from the Starship Enterprise." He says that he requires transport to his first officer.

Later, when Ando does not understand Hiro, Hiro says, "Hailing frequencies are open." He asks, "Is your communicator not functioning?" He exclaims, "Transmission jammed at the source, Captain!"

Graphic Novel: The Trip, Part 1

After Damian scrambles Hiro's brain, Hiro says, "Beam me up, Scotty!" He later imagines that a woman in Baudelaire is Spock.

Close to You

Hiro, whose "brain is [still] scrambled," sees the orderlies at Riverdale Psychiatric Hospital, and says, "Warp speed, Dr. Watson." Later, when Ando has been drugged and is being pushed in a wheelchair, he says, "Warp speed captain!" Finally, when Ando suggests using his red lightning to unscramble Hiro's mind, Hiro says, "Make it so, Sancho."

Graphic Novel: The Trip, Part 2

Hiro says he needs his "first officer". Later, he tells a ramen vendor that he is from the Starship Enterprise.
