In the episode "Inside Man", the holographic doctor wishes to play a round of golf with the Barclay hologram. One course he suggested was the "back nine on Geidi Prime." This is another reference to Dune (1984).

In the game Fallout, there is a reference to a Mentat, which is an intelligence booster.

I think there's one, we've all missed until now: the movie and the series "Tremors." It's about a worm-like creature, which travels under the ground just like Shai-Hulud, but it's smaller, meaner, and uglier. The film an the tv-series are all very-very bad and low quality, yet it's climeb up to 2 or more parts as a film and a series. Should you see it somewhere, quickly switch channels, because it'll eat your brain up.:)

Arutha:  Nice.  I'll have to replay that game sometime.  Or at least the level, which was my favourite of the game.

Nefud:  I'm surprised no one has mentioned it here yet.  It's been mentioned a thousand times before on the board, but for some reason, never made it to this particular thread.  Go figure.  Thanks.

And for the record, that movie rocked!
