Someone pointed out to me that in the movie when Kirk takes the Kobiashi Maru Test, he is eating an apple. This is a subtle reference to the Wrath of Khan, because when they are discussing the same event in that movie, Admiral Kirk is eating an apple. Sort of cool.

Yep, I noticed this too.

In fact, the entire Kobayashi Maru test was my favorite reference (to STII). I loved how the writers remembered Kirk took it three times. I loved how we saw him cheat. And I loved the lines "one photon each; we don't want to waste ammunition" and "don't worry about it." Ha!

Oh, and I absolutely laughed my @$$ off when we first see Uhura both bored and annoyed, delivering the worst distress call report ever to the "captain."

Great scene.

I like the fact that Kirk cheated on the test, as mentioned on STII.

The bit where one of the Romulans (I think its Nero) shouts

"KIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRK, KIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRK"

Thats a reference to the infamous line from Star Trek II

"KHANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN KHANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN" :D :D :D
