- Absentee Actor: Worf and Quark.
- Real Life Writes the Plot: Because Terry Farrell has a severe sunlight allergy, Jadzia was seriously injured at the beginning of the episode and spent most of her time in the cave.
- Additionally, an extremely hot temperature and no light kept them from filming Worf's one scene in the episode. Though initially disappointed by that, production agrees the end they went with (Sisko's closeup) worked better given the episode's bittersweet tone.
- What Could Have Been: There was a scene in the script in which the Rotarran arrives and Worf beams down to find the crew burying Gordon and the Jem'Hadar.
