The opening quote from this episode comes from CY 11745 while this episode takes places in CY 10089, 1656 years earlier. This is one of very few to come from the future. Others include: "Under the Night (1)" and "An Affirming Flame (2)".
The opening quote was said by the Clarion's Call, Ryan's ship from "The Knight, Death, and the Devil".
Goof: The Balance of Judgment said he'd spent three years living inside Rommie's mind, but he entered it towards the end of Season One, and it's now towards the end of Season Three, so he'd only been there for two years.
Nitpick: Tyr's son, Tamerlane, was last seen one year before this episode. He's grown way too much in one year unless, of course Nietzschean superiority includes the greatly accelerated growth of their young.
Harper: Why are we always behind the right door, at the wrong time?!
Hector: Respectfully Captain. You don't want your first sign of trouble to be your ship ejecting us through an airlock.
Andromeda: All defensive systems are offline.
Dylan: Well then. Throw sticks at them!
Harper: Of course. Why bring a gun to a warship. Just gonna be working, not like we have any trouble on ours!
(After "Rommie" has completely insulted him.)
Harper: Maybe. But I've got something your little boy-toy here will never have. I love you.
Rommie: Well that's the most pathetic thing of all.
Remiel: What else did you do?
Harper: Well, it's sort of funny actually, in all the, uh, rush to build you, I sort of forgot to make you anatomically correct. Don't worry though, you make up for it in your personality.
Rommie: Get the hell out of here before he's less inclined to let me have my way.
Harper: I don't run out on my friends.
Rommie: Or, I can throw you over my shoulder and carry you out there myself.
Harper: Throw in a spanking and we might have a deal.
Rommie: Harper, how could you think any of those things I said actually came from me?
Harper: I heard the words? I watched your lips move?
Remiel: All for one pathetic little organic.
Rommie: His name is Harper. He's a member of my crew and I'm responsible for him. In some sense he belongs to me. In some sense, I love him.
Rommie: Your mercy towards Harper proved it to me. And so did Gabriel's capacity for love. My sweet, lost Gabriel.
Remiel: Lost because you killed him.
Rommie: Yes I did. And I was wrong. I failed him. I made a mistake, and I am trying very hard to fix that mistake.
Remiel: Because you loved him?
Rommie: No. Because he loved me.
The great blessing
of the AI is that we are
gifted with the power to
touch our creator.
This is also our Curse.

This episode brings together four actors from the show Stargate SG-1: Michael Shanks, who played Dr. Daniel Jackson; Christopher Judge, who played Teal'c; Lexa Doig, who played Dr Carolyn Lam; and JR Bourne, who played a recurring character named Martouf.
The Nietzschean fleet admiral William Ataturk is named for Mustapha Kemal Ataturk, the first president of Turkey. One of the Turkish military leaders during WWI, he led his troops to victory against the French, British and ANZAC troops at Gallipoli, forcing the Allies to give up hope of a swift tactical end to the War, instead of the bloody battle of attrition in the fields of France. After the War, he led the Turks in a fight for their independence against the occupying forces of the Allies, and upon his success was named President of the new Republic of Turkey. As President, he installed secular law in place of the old Sharia law. He also instituted many social reforms, changed from using the Arabic alphabet to the Latin alphabet, and attempted to modernize the country at every level, from education to agriculture, economics and political reform, as well as socially.
Remiel (or Ramiel) is an archangel mentioned in the Book of Enoch, which is part of the Apocryphal Bible, and is considered canon by the Ethiopean Orthodox and the Eritrean Orthodox Churches. Remiel is one of the generals of the Fallen Angels known as the Watchers. He and his brethren Fell by taking human women as wives, and teaching forbidden knowledge. Remiel is associated with divine visions, and was tasked with leading souls up to Heaven before his Fall.
The Restors all seem to have an emblem on their forehead that shows their allegiance. This is likely a subtle reference to Stargate SG-1 in which the same is true of the Jaffa (including Christopher Judge's character, Teal'c) who once served the Goa'uld.
The Resolution of Hector:
This is a reference to Homer's The Iliad. Hector was Troy's greatest warrior. He was killed by Achilles in revenge for killing Achilles' friend Patroclus. Note that the Hector's AI is modeled after the Wrath of Achilles from the episode "The Knight, Death, and the Devil".
