*In "In Purgatory's Shadow", it is revealed that the Julian Bashir seen in this episode is in fact a Changeling impostor.
I removed this because evidence for it is inconclusive and debatable as shown on page Julian Bashir (Changeling)
- I still feel that it should be mentioned as a possibility somewhere in this article... thoughts? --From Andoria with Love 08:44, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
This episode features the last appearances of First Minister Shakaar Edon and Mora Pol. As such, this episode also features the last Star Trek appearances of James Sloyan and Duncan Regehr.Sloyan appeared in Voyager's "Jetrel." Did that episode air before this one?
- Yes. "Jetrel" aired on 15 May 1995, The Begotten on 27 January 1997. --OuroborosCobra talk 02:49, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
Nana Visitor's pregnancy
Did her own delivery coincide with this episode's production? Or, had she delivered already and did film the early scenes with belly stuffing? 22.214.171.124 00:54, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
- Visitor gave birth to Django during production on "Let He Who Is Without Sin...", five episodes earlier. She wore stomach padding from that episode until this one, in which her character gives birth to Kirayoshi.. --From Andoria with Love 01:10, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
Cast and Crew chair in shot
I noticed a crew chair in the shot background during the scene where Odo changes into the hawk. The shot is from the promenade balcony and looks down into one of the first level shops. Is this in any way relevant to the page listing? Shrantastic 17:57, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
Removed the following commment, as we shouldn't state what wasn't said- No mention is made of the fact that the O'Briens' quarters were destroyed by the explosion of Silaran Prin's hunter probe in "The Darkness and the Light", the episode immediately preceding this one.--31dot 14:04, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
"The poem foretells the end of Christianity, and the coming of 2000 years of evil."
Someone needs to study their Yeats again.
