The upcoming Family Guy direct-to-DVD movie Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story will include references to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and both the fourth and the fifth Star Trek movies.
According to Trek BBS member 'PowderedToastMan,' who was able to watch an advance copy of the film, René Auberjonois will reprise his role as Odo during a small sequence in which Stewie recalls his "Cousing Quark." The sequence features a Quark/Stewie hybrid sitting in the bar with Odo, who tells him, "I'm watching your every move, Quark, so don't think you can get away with any law-breaking."
Quark Griffin replies, "Yeah, yeah, whatever, man," prompting an angry "I mean it! You'll have me to deal with!" from Odo. Quark mocks Odo, saying, "Ohhhh, I'm really scared," at which point Odo threatens to morph into a giant python and eat Quark alive. "Hey, here's an idea," Quark suggests. "Wy don't you morph into a guy with something interesting to talk about?"
Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story will be released on DVD on the 27th of September, 2005. The 83-minute film is an extension of Fox's Family Guy TV show, which was recently resurrected on television following surprisingly strong sales of its DVD set. The film will allow the characters to go through raunchier adventures than would be possible on TV -- and also allows the creators to indulge in several other Trek references beyond the DS9 one listed above.
One of these will occur during the film's credit sequence, which shows one of the characters climbing a rock -- and then be greeted by Stewie on rocket boots behind them, similar to Kirk and Spock in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Finally, towards the end of the film, as one character is about to be teleported back through time, another jumps on his back, yelling "surprise!" A similar trick was used by Dr. Gillian Taylor in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home to join Kirk on the Klingon warbird.
Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story can already be pre-ordered from Amazon.com. Thanks go out to Doug Wilson for this!
