    • The "Mascena Gaspar Institute" listed as being in Georgetown, the place Harm goes to meet Jordan Parker's friend, is a fictional place named for longtime series Associate Producer, Megan Mascena-Gaspar.

    • This episode touches on Harm's previous romance with Lt. Cmdr. Jordan Parker that flamed during the series 4th year. When Harm went ahead and made a life-changing decision in returning to a fighter squadron onboard a carrier without discussing his feelings with Jordan, the relationship cooled. Then in the 6th season episode, "Past Tense", Harm was shocked to learn and then investigated the murder of Jordan.
