You might've missed these sneaky Black Mirror USS Callister cameos

Ready to ring in the New Year on the couch? Well, the latest season of sci-fi anthology show Black Mirror just hit Netflix. So binge on into 2018!

Every episode of the new season is likely to terrify you in its own chilling way, but there's one in particular that we've been looking forward to for months -- basically ever since we found out it existed. The very first episode of Black Mirror Season 4 is called "USS Callister," written by Charlie Brooker and William Bridges, and very obviously influenced by Star Trek. Starring Jesse Plemons, Cristin Milioti, Jimmi Simpson, and Michaela Coel, the episode may seem brighter than the rest, but addresses issues every bit as real.

And -- bonus! -- there are some pretty neat cameos in the episode, too.

Okay, so don't blink or you might miss Plemon's Fargo co-star (and fiancée) Kirsten Dunst in "USS Callister." She can be seen working at the Callister company, a tech company in the seemingly real, modernish world.

Quick, right? And the second cameo you might've missed is even harder to spot. Why? Because it isn't a physical one at all, but instead just a familiar voice.

Plemon's Breaking Bad co-star Aaron Paul is heard at the end of the episode, voicing a character who chases the crew away, claiming to be the "king of space." Hearing Paul deliver the last line of the episode as the crew speeds off into space is pretty neat, but it would have been even neater if he could have thrown a "yo bitch" in there somewhere.

Other than an alarming lack of "yo bitches," the whole 76-minute episode of "USS Callister" is worth watching, so if for some reason you still haven't checked it out, what are you waiting for?
