  • This episode marks the first appearance of the Andorians on Enterprise and of Andorian Commander Shran. The Andorian make-up and antenna effects are much more realistic than previous appearances in the other series.
  • Under the P'Jem monestary is a huge Vulcan surveillance base, which is used to spy on the Andorians. It is a direct violation of the treaty between the Andorians and Vulcans. It seems at this point in history, Vulcans have much in common with their Romulan siblings.
  • Jeffrey Combs (Shran) is famous for his previous recurring roles of Weyoun and Brunt on Deep Space Nine.
  • Director Roxann Dawson played B'Elanna Torres on Star Trek: Voyager.
