The Fennel Frontier

I bought the new VeggieTales DVD for Lex: Veggies in Space: The Fennel Frontier.
I'm really enjoying it!

In addition to the expected Star Trek and Star Wars references, I seen references to Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, Lost in Space (the 60s version), 2001 A Space Odyssey, Major Tom, Battlestar Galactica (both of them), ET, The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai Across the Eighth Dimension, Spaceballs, Babylon Five, Wall-E, Avatar, Alien/Aliens, Dr. Who (a completely blatant one), as well as the 'Mining Asteroids', 'Humongous Mecha', and 'Exploding Star' sci-fi tropes. I'm also amused by the "bridge" and "captain's log" sight gags. However, I'm really missing Stargate and Firefly :( I guess Mike Nawrocki's not a fan.

EDIT: Nope, they're there! Captain Cuke responds with "Shiny!" when shown a piece of machinery and theagentx pointed out the captain's log acts kind of like the kenos on Stargate: Universe.
Slightly disturbingly, theagentx also thinks there's a Total Recall reference, but I've never seen that movie.
