- Acting for Two: Bashir with the LMH, and Zimmerman with the EMH.
- One-Book Author: This is Fadwa El Guindi's (Amsha Bashir) only acting credit... because outside of this, she is very much not a One-Book Author. She's a noteworthy anthropologist who quipped "I'm an anthropologist, not an actress!"
- What Could Have Been: In the original script, Bashir's secret isn't exposed. Alexander Siddig, who was already angry about the script (because he would have played Bashir differently if the secret had existed from the beginning), insisted that it be revealed to everyone.
