Notes
  • This is the first episode Picard orders "Tea, Earl Grey, hot" from the replicator.
  • The Yamato is a Galaxy-class Starship, the same class as the Enterprise-D.
  • A representation of the Yamato was created by the creature Nagilum in "Where Silence Has Lease", however the registry number was NCC-1305-E. (It was likely changed to NCC-71807 for consistency purposes.)
