Brent Spiner (Data) mispronounces the word metathesis as "me-t&-'the-sis as opposed to the correct way of saying it: m&-'ta-th&-s&s. (Source: http://www.webster.com/dictionary/metathesis) – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk).
- After the engineering mission briefing where Wesley suggests checking the flow capacitor of the malfunctioning anti-grav unit, Barclay goes to the holodeck for a therapy session with holo-Troi and tells her that he already "knew about the flux capacitor". This is a (possibly accidental) reference to the Back To The Future movies.
- Barclay's holodeck fantasies are similar to the Mary Sue genre of fan fiction.

Holo-Representations of real individuals Edit
While in the holodeck, Riker states that the program is against protocol and that crewmen should not be represented in the holodeck. La Forge says he is not aware of any such regulations and Riker states that there should be. I think it presents a very interesting ethical situation, giving form to personal fantasies such as Barclay's can (IMO) easily be construed as invasive. Until recently re-watching this episode I had thought (as did Riker apparently) that such use of the Holodeck was indeed against protocol. Does anyone know if this is becomes true later on in the Star Trek franchise, perhaps mentioned in later episodes of TNG or maybe Voyager?? I make these points only in context with personal use of teh Holodeck as such representations would be fine for official use, in my opinion.

The Three Musketeers Edit
Is it known which musketeer character was played by Patrick Stewart, LeVar Burton and Jonathan Frakes? The musketeers names are: Athos, Porthos, and Aramis. --184.108.40.206 14:56, June 18, 2013 (UTC)
- I don't think they were meant to represent specific musketeers. 31dot (talk) 18:40, June 18, 2013 (UTC)
