Episode Quotes

Governor Vagh: You swear well, Picard. You must have Klingon blood in your veins.
Taibak: Notice that his heart rate has slowed somewhat. He is becoming accustomed to the horrors he is witnessing. So... we change horrors.
Counselor Deanna Troi: And that's all?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Yeah. Well, there was this...
Counselor Deanna Troi: [anticipating] Yes?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Her name is Jonek.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Ah!
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: But, er... you wouldn't wanna hear about that. Better get ready for duty. Nice talking to you, Counselor.

Mistakes/Goofs

  • Goof (plot holes): The computer tells Geordi that Risa is "climate controlled for optimum tourist comfort." As Risa hosts multiple species this would be impossible. For example, Vulcans would consider the comfort zone for humans to be quite cold, while Andorians would find it too hot.
  • Goof (errors in geography): When Geordi and Data left the shuttlebay, they walked by a door showing they were on Deck 12, whereas the shuttlebay is on Deck 13.
  • Goof (plot holes): When it was revealed that someone had tampered with the isolinear chips, no one suggested either DNA testing or fingerprint testing to verify who had altered the chips. Geordi changed the chips without wearing any form of protection to cover his fingerprints or to prevent leaving DNA.
  • Goof (plot holes): Why do the shields of the shuttle fail? The Romulan warbird didn't even fire.
  • Goof (factual errors): The title of the episode, as displayed within the episode itself, is missing the apostrophe, making it grammatically incorrect.

Trivia

  • The classical music heard at the beginning of the episode is a selection from the first movement of Beethoven's Sixth.
  • This takes place in 2367.
  • The matte painting used for the surface of Krios is a re-use of the painting originally created for "Angel One". The painting was extensively modified for this appearance.
  • First Star Trek appearance of John Fleck, best known as recurring villain Silik the Suliban in Star Trek: Enterprise.
  • The title is derived from Hamlet Act I, Scene I: "A mote it is to trouble the mind's eye."
