  • Quotes (2)

    • T'Pol: (sparring with Mayweather) Do not worry. You will not hurt me. Mayweather: It's not you I'm worried about.

    • T'Pol: (listening from afar) Tessic is explaining that the yield is not what they hoped. (pause) Trip: Good ears!

    Trivia (3)

    • Trivia: The Klingon tanker vessel seen in this episode, appears again later in the show as the variant D5 battle cruiser.

    • Nitpick: T'Pol incorrectly refers to the mek'leth as a two-pronged dagger, when it is actually a curved sword with a squared tip, along with another smaller blade extension near the handle. The dagger she is referring to is a d'k tahg.

    • Nitpick: Tessic wasn't aboard Enterprise when T'Pol taught the colonists the Vulcan self-defense tactic. However, when fighting the Klingons, he somehow knows how to do it perfectly.

    Allusions (2)

    • Blazing Saddles
      The episode may also be inspired in part by the Mel Brooks movie Blazing Saddles. In this movie, a town in the Wild West is physically replicated three miles away to lay an ambush for a band of attackers.

    • Seven Samurai
      This episode may be inspired by Seven Samurai, the influential Kurosawa film. In it, a poor village hires warriors to defend the town against raiding bandits. Although some plot points differ, the similarities are evident. It's interesting to note that instead of seven defenders, there are seven raiding Klingons.
