- Acting for Two: The main cast and their holodeck versions. Lucky boy Wil Wheaton mostly just had to sit there and eat pie in a silly outfit.
- First Appearance: For Lieutenant Reginald Barclay, aka "Reg." He would make a few more appearances in this series, and even stick around for Voyager.
- Reality Subtext: Guinan speaking very supportively of Barclay to Geordi. Whoopi Goldberg had personally recommended Dwight Schultz to TNG's producers for any part that came along.
