* While some fans felt that this episode was another stage in the process of making [[Dukat]] something more than a villain, thus building upon episodes such as {{e|The Maquis, Part II}}, {{e|Civil Defense}}, {{e|Defiant}}, {{e|The Way of the Warrior}}, {{e|Indiscretion}}, {{e|Return to Grace}}, and {{e|Apocalypse Rising}}, [[Ronald D.

* According to a line from the script that was cut just before filming, Bajorans on Terok Nor were known to burn [[malaba drum]]s in order to keep warm and months later, Dukat claimed that he extended environmental controls into the Bajoran sector to improve the quality of life.
