In {{m|April|1993}}, director [[David Livingston]] chose the location of '''Fern Dell''', a section of Griffith Park, as location for the [[Monastery of the Kai]] in the {{s|DS9}} episode {{e|In the Hands of the Prophets}}, the last episode of the [[DS9 Season 1|first season]]. The scene involved [[Avery Brooks]] and [[Philip Anglim]] and their "first meeting" in the series. According to Livingston, he was able to do a location shoot because of the high budget for the episode and he chose Fern Dell which is close to the studio. It was the easiest location for a director to shoot because of its narrow path that restricts movement which prohibits wider shots, according to unit production manager [[Robert della Santina]].
