- The Danza: Maury Ginsberg as played by...Maury Ginsberg. Apparently the producers felt the actor's name matched his character to they just went with it.
- Stock Footage: The comet shot was reused from the TNG episode "Masks".
- Talking to Himself: John de Lancie plays two on-screen versions of Q as one interrogates the other.
- What Could Have Been: An early draft had Q summoning Geordi La Forge, which would've been a Development Gag about how Tim Russ (Tuvok) also auditioned to be Geordi on TNG. But in the episode, he calls William Riker. According to Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton had just shaved his head, so he didn't look much like how audiences were used to seeing La Forge look. Burton would appear as Geordi in season 5's "Timeless", which he directed.
