- In the episode "Hollow Pursuits," a component of antigravity unit was called a "flux capacitor."
- In the episode "Sub Rosa", a grave on the Caldos Colony planet belongs to "McFly."
- In the series finale "What You Leave Behind," Miles O'Brien jokes about leaving the station to teach at Starfleet Academy because "somebody has to teach you officers the difference between a warp matrix flux capacitor and a self-sealing stem bolt."
- In #5 (released 2/15/12), the story sees the Legion of Super Heroes, and the crew of Captain James Tiberius Kirk sent into an alternate timeline.

References to Star Trek
- In Back to the Future, Marty McFly while in the guise of Darth Vader, claimed to be from the Planet Vulcan. The planet is the homeworld of Star Trek characters Spock and Sarek.
- In episode 1 of Back to the Future: The Game, Marty, needing the 1931 Emmett Brown to build him a Rocket-powered drill, claimed to be from the patents office. He told Emmett that if he couldn't make the drill, that the patent would be given to a Dr. McCoy. Dr. McCoy could be a reference to Star Trek doctor Leonard McCoy (Though the X-Men character Beast also went by Dr. McCoy as his name was Henry McCoy).
