No Future lists several Trideo/Simsense series and films that are references or straight up copies of existing movies and series.
The ones I recognized so far:

- Battlerun pg.64
Not a movie copy, but a mix of Shadowrun and Battletech featuring Lofwyr, the Inner Sphere, House Steiner and Davos etc.

- Dash: Star Loner pg. 67 and Chase: Errant Knight pg.80
Reminds me a lot of Dog the bounty hunter with more violence

- Ork and Minfy pg.74
According to Ghost Rigger in another thread a copy of Guess Who's Coming To Dinner

- Space Fleet pg.77
Star Trek (from the comments probably ST: Destiny) with the U.E.S Endeavour

- Temple Terror pg.79
From the sound of it Takeshi's Castle Aztec style.

- Transmorphers pg. 80
Transformers. It even says its a reboot of an old series and Red remarks that "it is the 80s again"

- The Simpsons pg.103
The Simpsons. Duh

Anything I missed of where I am wrong?

I had assumed that ‘Chase: Knight Errant’ was a reference to Knight Rider, the opening narration of which actually used to refer to Michael Knight as a “loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law.”

Likewise, ‘Ork and Minfy’ sounds a lot like Mork and Mindy...
