  • This story is a continuation of the storyline from "Reunion" and "Redemption, Part I".
  • During Worf's absence, Lt. O'Brien has been moved to the Tactical position.
  • Worf regains his family honor and his Starfleet commission.
  • Commander Sela first appeared in the episode "The Mind's Eye"; Tasha Yar goes back in time in the episode "Yesterday's Enterprise".
  • The blockade ultimately consisted of 23 ships. Several ships were in spacedock for repairs or still under construction, so they had no crew assigned.

  • Data commanded the Nebula-class U.S.S. Sutherland NCC-72015, with Lt. Cmdr. Hobson as first officer.
