- Anvilicious: Although Sisko eventually lightens up, he's not exactly wrong when he goes into detail over why a black man wouldn't want to revisit the early 1960s.
- Fridge Brilliance: Why does Sisko care about racism from 400 years ago when he lives in a post racial utopia? Because he experienced the brutality of that era first hand in another episode.
- Unfortunate Implications: When SF Debris reviewed the episode "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang", Chuck Sonnenburg commented on Ben Sisko complaining about glossing over the racism present when the holodeck scenario in question is supposedly set (The '60s), noting that the team's Batman Gambit uses its three female members in mostly passive roles (e.g. Distracted by the Sexy), rather than taking a fully active part in the casino heist like the men."In their attempt to address the elephant in the room, they've unwittingly called attention to the mammoth standing next to it."
