Just watched a Star Trek Voyager episode called 11:59 where Kate Mulgrew (Janeway) plays an ancestor of hers in December of 2000, and mentions how the Y2K bug a year earlier was all hype and nothing happened.  What's particularly interesting is that this episode was filmed in 1999, so they correctly predicted that the Y2K bug was much ado about nothing.
