In a season five episode Star Trek: The Next Generation, the Enterprise crew falls under the spell of a dangerously addictive augmented reality game. That same game lies buried within mobile game Star Trek: Timelines, an easter egg so well-hidden only one player has uncovered it, and they don’t even know it yet.

I don't see anything excessive about this at all. Instead, I see a chocolate fountain I'd like to install at my house. I now crave a giant chocolate Easter egg I could spend 40 days and 40 nights eating. And I want every meal I eat to be put together by these joy givers who artfully assemble this humungous…
Donald Glover got to voice one Spider-Man, Miles Morales, but he also turns up in The Amazing Spider-Man in a very small way. Even Peter Parker is a Glover fan.
Here's a fun little Google Maps easter egg: ask for directions from Snowdon to the Brecon Beacons in Wales, and it'll estimate travel time by car, bus, foot, plane, bicycle, or... dragon! The journey takes 21 minutes by the country's national emblem apparently, compared to 3 hours 20 minutes by car. [The Next Web]
New characters! What does that mean for Peter Parker? Did you catch that villain nod? We've rounded up all the spoilery easter eggs, nods, and winks from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and tried to decipher what it all means. Spoilers ahead!
Star Wars droid R2-D2 made a cameo in the 2009 Star Trek movie, which left some fans wondering if the little guy made it into Star Trek Into Darkness. Now that the film is out on home media, R2-D2 has been spotted. Hi there!
You maybe have noticed it's "Geek Week" on YouTube. Sure, that means plenty of cool videos and whatnot, but there's also something even better: Missile Command!
Hidden in the episode Star Trek: Voyager "Imperfection" is the fate of the Bartlett Administration from The West Wing. As you can see, the gang met a grisly end aboard a futuristic spaceship. On a happier note, we're excited to see that Donatella Moss has outlived the rest of the gang and is probably running a planet…
Google's Nexus Q is many thing to many people. A miniature Death Star, an alien being, necessary but overwrought or, umm, a media streamer. It also has an extra, hidden function: it works as a magic 8-ball.
Playing with the beloved "One does not simply walk into Mordor" meme, Google's got a J.R.R. Tolkien Easter Egg to die for.
I need a humidifier. I'll head to Amazon. They have deals. I'll scroll through their front page—oh, here are some good deals. Oh look, at the bottom there's a list of sites Amazon owns. Oh, the—OH GOD NO.

Perhaps my favorite Star Trek in-joke is this video explanation for the Beastie Boys' song "Sabotage" playing during baby Kirk's wild ride. Turns out Shatner had a problem with the word "sabotage." [Topless Robot]

The MOTO PNIS clock image we found yesterday caused such an uprising over at Motorola, they felt the need to respond to any possible penis allegations today.
Do you see the penis? Howard forum users discovered a penis image in the default Motorola analog clock in at least the V9M, the K1M and various other phones. Of course this Moto PNIS could just be a weird shadow, but it's a bit too penisy to just dismiss. Check your Moto, and if you've got this on your clock image,…
