  • Quotes

    • Riker: Mr. Worf, assign the Ferengi some quarters. Not too close to mine.

    • Kamala: My emphatic powers can only sense a man of deep passion and conviction. So controlled, so disciplined. I'm simply curious to know what lies beneath.

  • Notes

    • Marina Sirtis was credited but did not appear in this episode.

    • Famke Janssen's character describes herself as a mutant who is somewhat telepathic--she later played another mutant telepath alongside Patrick Stewart in the X-Men movies.

    • The character of Kamala was suppose to play the science officer of Deep Space Nine and was suppose to be introduced on Star Trek: The Next Generation (in the fashion Ensign Ro was introduced). When Famke turned the role down, the character of Jadzia Dax was created to take her place.

    • Max Grodénchik, also known as Rom from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, makes a guest appearance in this episode as the alien, Par Lenor.
