Writing Credits

According to the on-screen credits for this episode, as broadcast yesterday on during the marathon on SciFi, the writing credits are simply "Written by Fred Dekker". This article for this episode indicates the following:

Teleplay By Fred Dekker

Story By Rick Berman, Brannon Braga, Fred Dekker

The page for this episode at StarTrek.com credits Dekker with the Teleplay, but makes no mention of "Story By" credits.

Does anyone know which is correct, and where the credits here came from? — Greg (talk)

One possible location appears to be here at scifi.com Morder 18:37, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
Greg, I know this may sound odd, maybe even unlikely, but SciFi Channel, Spike, TVLand, etc., make very odd cuts to episodes when they're broadcast, sometimes just one line of dialogue resulting in two seconds of removed footage. It's entirely possible that SciFi cut a line that was spoken at the exact moment the "Story by" credit appeared and it went bye-bye along with the line. I've seen this happen to director credits on episodes of Voyager. Of course, that wouldn't explain its absence from startrek.com. Best to track down someone with a DVD and see what it says on the complete, uncut print. - Bridge 03:19, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
