Trivia: There are a number of other Star Trek references in Heroes. In episode 15 (Run!), Hope refers to Hiro as "Sulu", and at one point (and several other times throughout the show) Hiro gives the Vulcan hand symbol that Spock always used when he would say "live long and prosper". Zachary Quinto, who plays Sylar, would also later play Spock in the 2009 reboot Star Trek.
Trivia: Masi Oka (Hiro), who has an IQ of 180, appeared on the August 31, 1987 cover of "Time Magazine" for an article called "Those Asian-American Whiz Kids". Masi, who was 12 years old at the time, is the boy on the left of the cover which can be seen here: http://img.timeinc.net/time/magazine/archive/covers/1987/1101870831_400.jpg
