  • Jason: If I'm not your son... is this person still going to want to kill me? Picard: Once he's made aware of the fact, I expect he won't... Jason: In that case you won't mind me saying that I hope you're not my father...

  • Picard: (to his son with hair) One thing is clear - you'll never look at your hairline in the same way again.

Notes (3)

  • Peter Marx has been a Ferengi on TNG three times. His prior appearances were as Nibor in "Ménage à Troi," and as Dr. Reyga in "Suspicions."

  • The character of DaiMon Bok appeared first in episode 9 "The Battle". The character was played by a different actor in that episode.

  • The script name for Jason was Cristof and was changed since Cristof is Patrick Stewart's real life son's name.

Trivia (2)

  • Somehow Bok secretly beams in and out of Picard's quarters without his transporter beam lighting up the room (it does later in the episode once we and Picard know what he's up to).

  • Bok's plan doesn't make much sense. He had to find someone who had an affair with Picard and another guy in close proximity time-wise, and have it also be a woman who chose not to reveal to Picard or her son the father of that child. Then Bok had to get a sample of Picard's DNA, then sneak in and resequence Jason's DNA without anyone knowing. How likely is any of this?
