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.
