Star Trek: The Next Generation

Relics - S6-E4

Trivia: Scotty visits the bridge from "his" Enterprise (from the original 1966 Star Trek series) on the Holodeck. As the original set had long since been destroyed, the captain's chair and center console used in the episode was donated by a fan who had recreated a life size version of the bridge. The turbolift alcove and one of the stations was built on-set (and re-used in the DS9 episode "Trials and Tribbleations"). Everything else was made up of footage from the original series that was looped.

Descent (1) - S6-E26

Trivia: Stephen Hawking guest stars in this episode, playing himself as a holodeck character (The "Poker with Einstein" program). This came about when he visited Paramount Pictures to promote "A Brief History of Time", and then told the Paramount people that he had always wanted to visit the Enterprise. He not only got to visit, but the writers added this special scene just so professor Hawking could appear on screen in a Star Trek episode. Hawking also reportedly stopped by the warp engine, smiled and said "I'm working on that".

Starship Mine - S6-E18

Trivia: Early on in the episode, just after Picard realises what the terrorists are up to. He fights and disables one of the terrorists, a human played by Tim Russ, using what appears to be a Vulcan nerve pinch (although in the script it is referred to as a "carotid artery block"), which he learned from Sarek in an earlier episode. It's ironic that Tim Russ would later go on to play the Vulcan Lt. Tuvok on Voyager, and use that very same move on many an occasion.

Relics - S6-E4

Trivia: In the Holodeck, you see Scotty's right hand open on the glass and later on the bottle. It can be seen that his middle finger is missing. James Doohan kept his hand closed most of the time on screen because he lost it in World War II.
