"Star Trek is an American science fiction entertainment series and media franchise. The Star Trek fictional universe created by Gene Roddenberry is the setting of six television series including the original 1966 Star Trek, in addition to ten feature films (with an eleventh in post-production to be released on May 8, 2009). Dozens of computer and video games, hundreds of novels and fan stories, several fan-created video productions, as well as a themed attraction in Las Vegas. The original TV series alone has created a cult phenomenon and has spawned many pop culture references."--Wikipedia.
Star Trek, and more specifically Star Trek: The Next Generation is the basis for the structure of the crew, ship and galactic organization of Legostar Galactica. Many of the created races in the comic are based on races of Star Trek, such as the nuzzalari being based on vulcans, synari being based on klingons, and the remulans based on romulans.
Much of the information obtained for Star Trek based information was found at the Star Trek Wiki.
