Notes
  • Lt. Worf is made acting Chief of Security.
  • Denise Crosby left the series because she was unhappy with her character and she wanted to pursue a movie career. She will return as Romulan Commander Sela and guest stars as Lt. Yar in "Yesterday's Enterprise" and "All Good Things..."
  • This episode was produced before "Symbiosis" but was aired after "Symbiosis" so the production numbers are out of order.
