  • Trivia

    • After Picard, Wesley and Dirgo place the cross indicating which direction they will be traveling in, they walk in a completely different direction, roughly 45 degrees from the direction the arrow pointed.

    • Trivia: Beverly mentions hyronalin as a radiation treatment. This was also referenced as the standard anti-radiation drug in the TOS episode "The Deadly Years."

    • When Picard, Wesley, and Dirgo enter the cave Picard asks Wesley if he can pick up any moisture readings. Wesley answers no. A few seconds later a bottle of alcohol drops out of Dirgo's pocket. Why didn't the tricorder pick up the moisture readings from this bottle?

  • Quotes

    • Picard: (regaining consciousness) Mr. Crusher.
      Wesley: Yes, sir
      Picard: What are you doing in such a filthy uniform?
      Wesley: You don't look so ship-shape yourself, sir.

  • Notes

    • Take a hard look at Dirgo's shuttle when it's crashed on the surface. It looks suspiciously like a standard Enterprise shuttlecraft that's been painted rust brown and flipped on its top.

    • Picard mentions Boothby, the Starfleet Academy groundskeeper. This is the first mention of Boothby, who would later be seen in the "The First Duty" and the ST: Voy ep, "In The Flesh".

    • Dirgo's weapon is a phaser from the original Trek series.

    • This marks Wil Wheaton's last appearance as a regular cast member.
