I am trying to run some shell commands on a PC joined to one domain, where there is a trust between this domain and another.. Is there anyway to specify a server command to make sure this shell command is running against a DC in another domain?

Provided you have the necessary permissions on the remote server, you can use one of these two methods:

1. Invoke-Command
--- https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh849719(v=wps.630).aspx
2. New-PSSession
--- https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh849717(v=wps.630).aspx

Links assume PowerShell v4.0

No need for the heavy artillery here.
You can simply use Get-ADUser's "-Server" argument and specify the FQDN of the DC in the trusted domain. If necessary, you can use the "-Credential" argument to specify credentials for the other domain as well.
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Server TrustedDC.trusted.domain.com
