Tommy Westphall's Mind: A Multiverse Explored
According to Tom Myers' LO:SVU site, the season finale will guest star Carol Kane reprising her role of Gwen Munch, one of John´s ex-wives who appeared previously in H:LOTS ep. #85 ("All is Bright"), way back in 1997.
This is what makes that whole crossover business so interesting.

All right. I've been puzzling over this for a while, but I have come the conclusion that there are several sci-fi (especially Trek-related) crossovers that we're just ignoring. Here's my partial list:
*A shuttle named the Indiana Jones was aboard the Enterprise-D.
*Bothans, Quarren, and Alderaan (all from Star Wars...bite me, anti-movie people) were mentioned and/or appeared throughout later Treks.
*An episode of Voyager made reference to tylium, Borays, and Ovions, all of which are from the original Battlestar Galactica.
*I believe someone already mentioned Capt. Pike being paged on Buck Rogers.
*An episode of seaquest DSV (sic) portrayed a plaque commemorating the launch of the Nomad probe, from the Trek ep, The Changeling just like it creator Jackson Roykirk.
*It's a bit dicey, but the Promenade Directory lists Diet Smith Corporation (Dick Tracy), Tom Servo's Used Robots (Mystery Science Theater 3000), the Forbin Project (Colossus, already in my list due to a mention in Team Knight Rider), Banzai Institute (Buckaroo...big surprise), Del Floria's Tailor Shop (man from uncle...are there spies on Deep Space Nine?), Spacely Space Sprockets (The Jetsons. Bite me, anti-cartoonists), Cavor's Gravity Devices (First Men in the Moon), Yoyodyne Propulsion Systems (Buckaroo...again), Diva Droid Corporation (Red Dwarf), Jupiter Mining Corporation (yet again, Red Dwarf, ladies and gentlemen), and Milliways (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy).
*Containers marked, "Bellus," and "Zyra" were in the cave where Genesis was tested in Wrath of Kahn, both referring to The Day the Earth Stood Still.
*Cavorite, an element discovered in The First Men in the Moon, is on Next Gen's Periodic Table of Elements.
*The crew of the Heart of Gold (Hitchhiker's), apparently now working for Sirius Cybernetics, signed a certificate for Humanoid of the Year.
I'm kind of riding the fence for now on whether or not cameoes of spaceships should count, mainly because it would mean both Battlestars coexisting.
