The Disney animated series Gargoyles made reference to Star Trek in the season one episode "Brothers Keeper," in which a character states "Yeah? You and what Starfleet?" The show notably also stared many veteran Star Trek actors.
- Brent Spiner provided the voice of Puck, a role shared by Spiner's character Data in the episode, "Time's Arrow, Part II".
- Xanatos, the show's primary antagonist, shares his appearance with his voice actor Jonathan Frakes, and by extension, with Frakes's character, William T. Riker.
- Xanatos has a somewhat flirtatious rivalry with the female gargoyle Demona, voiced by Marina Sirtis, who also played Deanna Troi, Commander Riker's love interest.
Other Star Trek actors with roles on the show included Michael Dorn, Kate Mulgrew, Nichelle Nichols, W. Morgan Sheppard, Michael Bell, Avery Brooks, LeVar Burton, Gerrit Graham, Tony Jay, Colm Meaney, Victor Brandt, David Warner, Paul Winfield, John Rhys-Davies, Frank Welker, and Matt Frewer.
Patrick Stewart was also considered for the role of Macbeth, a seemingly immortal character with some similarities to Flint. Actors including Jeff Bennett, Jim Cummings, B.J. Ward, Tress MacNeille, and Cam Clarke went on to provide voice work for the various Star Trek games.
A trade paperback printing some Gargoyles comic book stories has a time-lost character acknowledging Star Trek as a show which involves time travel.
In addition, the show and comics have been written by Star Trek writers which include Cary Bates, Michael Reaves, Diane Duane, Peter Morwood, and Martin Pasko. John Costanza did the lettering for the Gargoyles comics published by Marvel Comics and in the Disney Adventures magazine. Gordon Purcell did the pencil art for Gargoyles #6 for SLG Comics.
