"To Boldly Jerk Where No Man Has Jerked Before" annotations GO!
There's really only one story at the center of this episode, which is the article from the New Yorker detailing Paul Haggis' little non-war against Scientology. Beyond that there aren't very many other sources to cite.

Let's let Captain Kirk play us out--
