- What Could Have Been:
- It was decided that a recurring actor would need to play Laas. Jeffrey Combs and Andrew Robinson were also considered.
- The original plan for this episode would have featured Sisko coming to make an appeal to Odo after he left the station rather than Odo making the decision to return on his own, Sisko appealing to Odo that humanoids will always have a degree of racism and Sisko's honestly prompting Odo to return to the station.
- You Look Familiar: John G Hertzler (Martok) plays Laas.
