- What Could Have Been:
- This episode was originally written with Picard in Geordi's place, being the one working with the holographic Dr. Brahms.
- Originally, Leah Brahms was named "Navid Daystrom", who was intended to be a descendant of Dr. Richard Daystrom from the TOS episode "The Ultimate Computer". However, the casting department didn't realize that they would require a black actress until after Susan Gibney had been cast. So the character was renamed, but they added a nod to Daystrom with a line that Brahms graduated from the Daystrom Institute (last mentioned in "The Measure of a Man").
- Originally the holodeck set was to have been a mockup of a warp engine, but time constraints forced the more limited set shown.
