Footage from this episode was later reused in the episode "Shades of Gray".
That year, when Kyle Riker came aboard the Enterprise-D to brief his son about the USS Aries, Boliska greeted Riker with a handshake near a table of two other female acquaintance in Ten Forward. Moments later Riker spotted Katherine Pulaski and left his three acquaintances to greet his old friend. (TNG: "The Icarus Factor")
Boliska, who was portrayed by an unknown actor, was identified in the script of "The Icarus Factor". In a line appearing in the script, but cut from (or unintelligible in) the filmed episode, Kyle Riker states, "Boliska! What in the name of the Federation are you doing here?"
