Footnotes

  1. The video sleeve gives the 23rd century stardate used in the episode.
  2. Somewhat unusually, the front cover image is not that of a character, but rather of Cardassian and Dominion ships attacking the station. The internal sleeve features a biography of Elias Giger.
  3. In the case of sets, the certificate is over the set as a whole (unless stated otherwise).
