*** Not to mention that since the subject that Nog was operating was already dead it wasn't like he was going to have to worry about causing further damage (and also the research has already been done on walking virtually corpses; see TOS Spock's Brain) unlike an actual living person where oh-so much could go fatally wrong with trying to hack their brain.

*** To be fair, the episode does try to cover this objection by presenting it as an example of "mission creep"... Worf and Dax are sent merely to receive a message, and then circumstance compels them to go collect the informant themselves. But I don't think it really works, because it ultimately underlines why couples should probably never be on ''any'' missions together, let alone solo missions, since shifting priorities are always possible.

*** For that matter, scaly mammals exist on Earth. Just take a close look at an armadillo's armor plating, or the tails of beavers and rats.

*** For that matter, scaly mammals exist on Earth. Just take a close look at an armadillo's armor plating, or the tails of beavers and rats. Trace the Cardassians' evolutionary history back far enough, and you may find they're descended from their homeworld's version of pangolins.

** The concern with the Lightworlder visitor may be less about her not having the strength to walk, than about her delicate bones being too brittle for her to do so safely. An exoskeleton that's not perfectly configured and programmed for her movements might be more likely to snap her legs than support them.

* Why do humans still use canoe and simple sailboats despite having powered watercraft? The lightship may have been based upon a recreational vehicle-design, used by long-ago Bajoran hobbyists who didn't ''want'' to let technology do all the work for them.

** Possibly the bunks can be folded up against the wall to reveal toilet-benches underneath them.

* Everyone seems to have watched a very different version of this episode than I recently did, because among other things I specifically saw that when the clone went down, Sisko was kneeling at his side and calling desperately for Bashir to come help (and he did try).

*** It's possible that the ship was called the U.S.S. Sovereign while it was under construction, but they changed the name to Enterprise after NCC-1701-D was destroyed.

*** Bashir tells Odo: "Physiologically, you're completely human" in the Infirmary at the end of "Broken Link." The clarification "physiologically" leave little space to argue that he is anything other than literally human, as opposed to simply "humanoid" (which might be implied by his earlier statement "I'm reading a heart, lungs, and a digestive system. It's as if he were human," made on only cursory evidence.

*** Yes, but it still rankles how "Odo and Kira talk in a closet, unseen" serves as a reset button.
