Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: To who?
Vulcan Ambassador Soval: The nebula.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: [referring to Soval] Now you believe him. What changed your mind?
Commander Shran: A lesser man would have told me what I wanted to hear, even if it wasn't true. There's been too much suspicion, too many lies, on both sides.
- SPOILER: The revelation that the character of Major Talok was actually a Romulan disguised as Vulcan was actually a cost-saving measure. The Romulan that V'Las was to be revealed as conspiring at the end of the episode with was originally a separate character, however budget constraints left no more money to hire another actor for a speaking role. Writer Michael Sussman adjusted the scene, turning Talok into the Romulan spy, as the Major's role had already been budgeted for.
- SPOILER: While it is not explicitly revealed that Talok is a Romulan, it is implied that Romulans and Vulcans share the same lineage when he tells V'Las that "the reunification of our people is only a matter of time."
- This takes place in 2154.
