  • Trivia

    • Why does Riker vaporize Yuta? Wasn't that a little excessive? He could have restrained or arrested her instead.

    • During the opening ambush Data and Geordi figure out a phaser on level 7 can vaporize metal at 2,314 degrees. Later, when Riker confronts Yuta, his phaser is initially on level 12. It has no effect, and then he cranks it up to level 16 (maximum) and finally it stops her. It seems hard to believe that Yuta can withstand a phaser blast of approximately 4,000 degrees!

    • Crusher asks the computer for, and gets, the clan affiliation of three different Acamarians. Then she asks if any of the Acamarian delegation are from the Trakesta clan and the computer says it has no information on clan affailiations.

  • Quotes

    • Worf: Your ambushes would be more successful if you bathed more often.

    • Data: Captain, I am detecting life readings from the planet surface. As well as several small areas of thermal radiation and carbondioxide emissions indicative of combustion.
      Wesley: Camp fires, Data.
      Data: Is that not what I said?
