Just caught the homage at the beginning of Cannibal! when Alfred Packer (Trey) is in the court room, and we've just heard the prosecution describe the alleged circumstances of Packer's murderous cannibalism. In the final shot of the scene, Packer (Trey) says, "But that's not the way it happened!"

In Star Trek (Original Series) Season 1, Episode 20, "Court Martial," Captain Kirk is court martialed for perjury and negligence for prematurely jettisoning the Enterprise's Ion pod with Lt. Commander Finny still inside during an ion storm. During the court martial, there is a playback of the computer's visual account of the events that took place on the bridge of the Enterprise during the ion storm, which portrays Kirk as guilty. After this video is shown (right after 28:00), there is a close-up of Kirk's face as he says, verbatim, "But that's not the way it happened!" almost exactly as Alfred Packer says it at the beginning of Cannibal!.

Great stuff.

theres also hidden alien heads throughout the movie which is kinda star trek like I suppose. I think theyre making fun of alien influences in quiet little mountain towns XD

EDIT:

6. Parker notes the “But that’s not the way it happened” bit of dialogue cutting into the opening credits is a reference to the Star Trek episode, “Court Martial,” where Captain Kirk says the same thing in the opening
