Default Amazing Spider-Man = more Star Trek references!

I was reading Amazing Spider-Man #590. Spider-Man has once again teamed up with the Fantastic 4 and they are observing a primitive civilization in the "Macroverse." Suddenly, they see an alien man and woman get attacked by other aliens. Spider-Man wants to leap into action and help, but Sue Storm (Invisible Woman) trys to persuade him otherwise.

Invisible Woman: "...watch but don't interfere."
Mr. Fantastic: "I wanted to call it the Prime Directive, but I got voted down."
Spidey: "Aww. Like Star Trek."
Invisible Woman: "Exactly."
Human Torch: "We can take people calling the F.F. "old school," but Trekkies...?"

And then later in issue #591, as Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic, is leaving a new alien friend he says, "Live long and prosper."

Pretty cool that this is the second and third instance of Star Trek making its way into Marvel comics I've read in the past month. I am sure there are more occurences, though. Aight, thats it. Read The Amazing Spider-Man #590-591 to see for yourself!

There has been Trek References in comic book titles a plenty ... Superman #74 1996(I believe.) The exchange between Superman and Superboy at the end:
Superboy...I gotta jet. So it's second star to the right and straight on til morning.
Superman: Peter Pan? How appropriate.
Superboy: What are you talking about? Captain Kirk said that!
In the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles graphic novels... there were a ton of Trek references delivered by the mean-green quartet. ( Too many to list atleast.) so your find is not too suprising.

There are tonnes of, but I think the most prominent would be when the X-men teamed up
first with Kirk's crew and after that with Picard's.
Those crossovers didn't sit well with everyone, but I loved it.
