Trivia (2)

  • Data says that blowing up the moon would not reduce its mass, and the damage would be only spread further. While mostly true, it is also true that the mass would be reduced (albeit slightly); the explosion would move some of the mass out of the planet's gravity; and the total surface area would be massively increased, and so smaller moon chunks would burn up in the atmosphere harmlessly.

  • After they save Q's life, Picard assigns a guard to watch Q. The guard pushes Q out into the corridor but never appears again, even after Q breaks into the shuttlebay and steals a shuttlecraft.

Allusions (2)

  • Q: Oh, perspicacity incarnate! Please don't feel compelled now to tell me the story of 'The Boy Who Cried Worf'. This last line is a pun on Æsop's well known fable "The Boy Who Cried Wolf", about the young shepherd who thought it was funny to cry "Wolf" on a couple occasions, in order to have the villagers rushing to assist, only to lose his entire herd (and in some versions, his life) when the wolf really came and the villagers ignored his cries...

  • Q: The king who would be man.
    This is a play on the short story by Rudyard Kipling called "The Man Who Would Be King."
