  • Notes

    • Whoopi Goldberg guest starred as the ship's bartender named "Guinan" who explains the facts of life to Lal. In the original script, the facts of life were explained by Guinan saying, "'When a man and a woman are in love ..." but Whoopi insisted that in the future people would not be homophobic and that the line should read, "when two people are in love." An attempt was also made to have a gay couple in the background while Whoopi was explaining the facts of life. The script was changed, but no gay couple was allowed to exist in the background.
