(written from a Production point of view)
Over the years, Star Trek's position as a cultural icon has resulted in many parodies and pop culture references of it on other television shows and movies. While some have been subtle tip-of-the-hat references, others have been complete copies, with the intention to reference Star Trek. Additionally, many small acknowledgments may not warrant inclusion, such as the use of the TOS transporter sound for various shrink rays, teleporters, etc. on SpongeBob SquarePants.
Produced by ATOZ Films in the 1980s, this white-trash parody of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan played at conventions for years until a "Special Edition" version, with added effects, was released on video in 1999. In the film, the Redneck Federation Starship RSS Bovine battles spacefaring cats.
Video parodies and pop culture references that originated online. Web comics can be found under literature.
The Angry Video Game NerdEdit
In one of his online episodes, "The Nerd" reviews several Star Trek games. The episode opens with a parody of The Original Series intro with a Nintendo Entertainment System flying through space like the Enterprise and Alexander Courage's theme played on electric guitar. The Nerd, dressed for the occasion, reviews Star Trek: The Motion Picture on the Vectrex Arcade System, Star Trek: Strategic Operations Simulator on the Atari 2600 and ColecoVision and Star Trek: 25th Anniversary on the NES. Features of the episode include the Nerd having a fight with a Klingon and meeting a Metron. As a reference to Project Genesis, the Nerd offered the Klingon a Sega Genesis.
Confused Matthew is an online film review website (and youtube channel), in which the titular owner reviews films he considers bad (films which make him "confused"). A self-proclaimed Star Trek fan, Matthew often deals with various incarnations of the franchise he considers the worst, especially Star Trek Generations, Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek: Voyager. He also made a recap of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, which he gave a posiive review.
The popular meme video featuring Adolf Hitler (played by Bruno Ganz) from the 2004 German movie Der Untergang (Downfall), subtitled with humorous English text to create videos of him reacting with anger to various things, was used several occasions in connection with Star Trek. Videos of Hitler outraged by Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness both exist, as well as two recuts in which Hitler (commanding the Enterprise) conflicts Khan Noonien Singh on board the Reliant (from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan).
The Nostalgia CriticEdit
To Boldly Flee was a special done to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the Nostalgia Critic. The special consists of parodies of various Sci-fi franchises including Star Trek, Metal Gear, Star Wars, and Battlefield Earth.

Doug Walker (the creator of Nostalgia Critic) called January 2012 Star Trek Month and reviewed all of the odd numbered films for the entire month.

Jandrew Edits Edit
The most common picture was taken from the episode "Deja Q" (in which it was a response to Q), although other variants exist, including an edited image that shows William T. Riker next to Picard, also facepalming.
Another slightly less common meme shows a picture of a frustrated Picard. This image, taken from "Ménage à Troi" (where Picard was not annoyed but rather poetically courting Lwaxana Troi), is usually accompanied by a caption about a frustrating issue, often starting with the phrase "what the fuck" or a variant thereof.

He is beamed down with Spock, McCoy, and a terrified redshirt by Scotty, who resembles Simon Pegg in Shaun of the Dead. While on the planet, Kirk sleeps with a grotesque gargantuan alien, angering her father. The struggling duo are beamed back aboard, where Kirk switches the lens flares back on, blinding the alien father so Spock may nerve pinch it.

- You sit and listen to the old man's stories for a little while before you realize he's just recounting episodes of Cheers, Happy Days, and the Beverly Hillbillies. You start to get a little uncomfortable when he starts retelling what sounds suspiciously like an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
- Old Man: ...And that's how we escaped the Borg ship and rescued the captain. Oh, look at the time! Buffy is about to come on! Well, let me get you a little something for spending some time with an old man.

Little Big PlanetEdit
In LBP II, one of the levels has characters flying around in a craft called "Big Spaceship" which resembles the Enterprise only with a Sackboy head instead of the saucer.

In one confrontation, Commander Shepard tells a Krogan soldier that the ruins they're in are collapsing around them and will kill them all. The Krogan responds, "Yes! Exhilirating, isn't it?", a direct reference to Kruge's response to Kirk's similar concern in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.
Also, the game featured Marina Sirtis, Armin Shimerman, and Carolyn Seymour in various roles. Michael Dorn lends his voice to Mass Effect 2 as a Krogan, a species with a warrior mentality similar to Klingons.
Engineer Adams may be a nod to Star Trek. In The Original Series episode "Dagger of the Mind", Dr. Tristan Adams runs the Tantalus Penal Colony. Here, Adams oversees the Normandy's experimental Tantalus Drive Core.
Coincidentally, the commanding officer at the beginning of the game is named David Anderson.
In Mass Effect 2, when Commander Shepard visits a bar in the Citadel, his response to an alien drink served is "This is... it's green?". Similar lines are said about beverages in the episodes "By Any Other Name" and "Relics".
Being a Scottish engineer, Kenneth Donnelly on the Normandy SR-2 is commonly thought to be a reference to Montgomery Scott.

The game's main villains, the Aparoids, share many similarities with the Borg.

Other parodies and referencesEdit
- Former Mystery Science Theater 3000 co-stars Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy recorded audio commentary tracks mocking Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, and Star Trek Generations. The commentaries were made available as an Internet-only download through Nelson's RiffTrax service. More recently, they released a track for Star Trek.
- Stand up comics have also been known to reference Star Trek as part of their acts. Bill Bailey has pointed out how his microphone makes him look like a Klingon motivational speaker, and Eddie Izzard has a routine of how the crew of the Enterprise could defeat enemies with different phaser settings. Two such examples are the "depression", and "I've left the oven on" settings.
- At the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear on 30 October 2010, Jon Stewart used the imaginary threat of "corbomite" in bottled water to illustrate how media figures (personified by Stephen Colbert) create and magnify fears in the public. "You just got scared by something that is not real," Stewart said. After explaining the reference to "The Corbomite Maneuver", Stewart and Colbert briefly discussed Uhura's incongruous uniform in that episode.

These images were later used for the Star Trek Into Darkness mobile app. 
- In 2013, the American Internal Revenue Service became embroiled in a scandal when it transpired that they had produced a Star Trek themed instructional video, considered to be an example of wasteful spending. The video showed a mission of the Enterprise Y to the planet Notax, which threatened to descend into chaos due to noncompliance with the tax code. It also featured a Spock parody. $60,000 was reported to have been spent on this video and another one based on Gilligan's Island, although the latter video did not get nearly as much media attention. Perhaps even more disturbing than the spending ethics, the video showed the characters wearing TNG-era uniforms while being set on a Constitution class bridge.
