This may have already been discussed, but did anyone see the new Star Trek movie? It's sort of a prequel of how they all got together. When Scotty turns up he explains that he has been banished to a frozen outpost because of an experiment gone wrong involving Admiral Archer's beagle. The admiral that he was referring to was Captain Archer (played by scott Bakula) in the TV series Star Trek: Enterprise. Remember his cute beagle on that show?
