  • Notes

    • This is the third time that we saw a race of alien shapeshifters (the first being the Salt Monster in the Original Series episode "The Man Trap", and the second being Garth of Izar in "Whom Gods Destroy," who was taught how to shapeshift by the Izarites). This makes later references about the Federation's unfamiliarity with shapeshifters (Odo is described as unique, and shapeshifters are described as "legendary" in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.) Banishing this episode from canon doesn't explain the Garth of Izar thing.
