Even though no one visits this forum anymore, I still like some thoughts on this.

BigIdea has made many Star Trek references over the years. From Sumo Of The Opera's:

Lutfi: This was the land of the druids, so the people there spoke a different language. Though we can just pretend they all speak english... Like Star Trek!

to The U.S.S. Applepies. Though, 3-2-1 Penguins! is probably their best attempt. A space ship working for the federation to settle problems throughout the universe...yeah. It sounds just like Trek. The show even focuses on four main characters. (Zidgel, Midgel, Fidgel, and Kevin in 3-2-1 Penguins (not counting Jason and Michelle because they aren't officially part of the crew) and Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Scotty in Star Trek, (Uhurah, Chekov, and Sulu being more in background roles))

Even Jason T. Conrad sounds a lot like James T. Kirk.

Plus, the episodes "Trouble on Planet Wait-Your-Turn", "Moon Menace on Planet Tell-A-Lie", and "More is More" all subvert the Planet of Hats trope commonly seen in Star Trek by showing that the reason why the aliens are all acting a certain way, e.g. impatient, dishonest, or gluttonous, is because an outside force is causing them to act that way.

....um....yeah, kind of. I haven't seen much of the series (maybe half of it?) and mostly know it from the movies (the third one, while widely hated is genius)

Though, yeah, it was stupid to forget her though.

i wouldn't call it a direct parody, it just takes a lot of inspiration from it.
