"Engineering authorization Omega Four-seven (47)".
Writer Joe Menosky (and thosehe inspired)began including references to the number 47 in almost every episode of Star Trek since season four of The Next Generation. It is an in-joke, referring to The 47 Society at Pomona College in California, which Menosky attended.
King Abdullah of Jordan makes an uncredited appearance in this episode, but has no lines due to the fact he is not a member of the Screen Actor's Guild. He's the blue suited science officer standing with Kim in the teaser.
