  • Trivia

    • Trivia: In a previous episode, warp speed limitations were imposed due to the damage high-speed warp travel was having on the universe. This is one of the few subsequent episodes where this issue is addressed: Picard is given authority to exceed warp limitations if the situation demands it.

    • When Lt. Kwan was about to jump, why not activate the transporter to prevent the incident from occurring?

    • When the service record for Lt. Kwan is accessed, it shows the same stardate for his assignments to three different ships. And no stardate for his assignment to Utopia Planitia.

    • Deanna is specifically searching for a red-haired man, but when she runs a database search many of the faces that show up are of women.

  • Quotes

    • Riker: Is there... someone in particular you're talking about?
      Worf: No. Is there... someone in particular you would prefer I not become involved with?
      Riker: Worf... you sound like a man asking a friend if he can start dating his sister.
      Worf: No, I am merely... never mind. Excuse me, sir.

    • Worf: Counselor, when I pulled you from the plasma stream, you seemed surpised I was alive.
      Troi: Well, actually in my hallucination, you were killed.
      Worf: May I ask by whom?
      Troi: Well, you know what they say, Mr. Worf, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned."

  • Notes

    • Asteroid field shot with Enterprise recycled from "Galaxy's Child."

    • Nora Leonhardt appears in more episodes of the series. She is Marina Sirtis's body double. The entire cast was there to watch her perform in this episode. She is also seen on the Enterprise-B's bridge crew in Star Trek: Generations. In fact Patrick Stewart's body double is there as well.

    • Early storylines had Deanna hooking up with either Will Riker or Tom Riker but they decided to pair her up with Worf.

  • Allusions

    • Troi: Well, you know what they say, Mr. Worf, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned."
      This is a frequently-used adaptation from a line in William Congreve's play The Mourning Bride.
