Removed Note Edit
I removed the following:
- Although the conclusion is undeniably dramatic, fans have pointed out that it is rather strange Kira doesn't signal for medical help after Marritza is stabbed, allowing him to die from an injury far less serious than many Bashir has successfully treated. However, it is unlikely that Kira would have allowed such a thing, particularly since Marritza visibly slackens after he is stabbed. It would have been rather obvious that he was already dead and beyond help.
I don't think we need notes debunking random nitpicks (which fans point this out?), especially when the summary already shows that the nit was incorrect (ie. that Marritza was already beyond help).– Cleanse 03:51, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
(By the way, I didn't mean to mark the removal as minor; I only realised after saving the edit) – Cleanse 03:53, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
1st mention of Shakaar? Edit
Does anyone know for sure if the this episode marks the first mention of the Shakaar resistance cell or was there an earlier episode? If it is the first, perhaps we can make mention of it on the page.--Ds093 00:10, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
Jetrel note Edit
I removed the following. It has lacked citation for just over a year now:
- The producers tried to recreate the critical success of this episode in the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Jetrel".
Remove Spoiler? Edit
The following note contains a spoiler for next episode:
- This episode introduces the character of Neela, who went on to play a crucial role in the following episode, "In the Hands of the Prophets", although she was supposed to be introduced in "The Forsaken". The producers' intention was for the audience to assume she was simply a new recurring character, thus creating an unexpected twist when she turns out to be an assassin, and they felt that seeing her twice before the final episode would accomplish this goal. However, the actress cast as Anara for "The Forsaken" "didn't work out," and she was written out of that episode. She was never supposed to be in "Dramatis Personae", so in the end, she only appeared in one episode prior to being made into a villain. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion)
I think it should be removed or altered for the sake of those of us on our first run of the show that like to read the background information on a per episode basis, I found myself paying close attention to the character even if before the show had made it suspicious. Maybe move some of this to the following episode's background info instead?. --184.108.40.206 21:24, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
