The Klingon penal colony asteroid of Rura Penthe is named after a penal colony mentioned in this movie: Rora Panthe.

Johnny comments on the upcoming movie
The statement made by Captain Picard, that a long-time held grudge can become so familiar that one cannot get rid of it, closely mirrors the observation made by Captain Kirk: he too noticed that he bore hatred and distrust towards the Klingons for so long, that he simply couldn't believe their desire for peace.

"Why the hell was I in Star Trek VI?"
Sam quotes Spock, "Logic is the beginning of wisdom not the end."
The climax pays homage to that of "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country." During the 10-second countdown to the cheese cannon firing, the "So Random" cast and Sonny's friend Chad crashed into the pep rally in time for Chad to knock Sonny down, Zora putting out the cannon fire with her Sherlock Holmes pipe, and Nico getting the bomb out of the cannon. Tawni stopped "Vicki" in the way Captain Sulu stopped Admiral Cartwright, unmasking "Vicki," who turned to be Penelope, in a way the Starfleet Commander-in-Chief and Colonel Worf found out that the "Klingon" behind the assassination turned out to be Colonel West.
