Bears? Edit

In the "Lions, Gigers, bears" joke, what does the "bears" part refer to? - Ugliness Man 05:07, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

It refers to Kukalaka, Julian Bashir's teddy bear. --Jörg 08:35, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Date Edit

This episode began filming 3 April 1997

Do we really need to note this in the BG section? – Bertaut 02:51, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Maybe not... but some people are interested in the nitty-gritty stuff like that. Just like some people are interested in the various dates on scripts and story treatments. -- Sulfur 02:57, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
It'll help if someone wants to later put a full production timeline, like those in nearly every TOS episode background. I personally find them utterly boring, but I see their merit to other people. – Cleanse 03:02, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
Fair enough so. Good idea about the production timeline though. Maybe at some stage in the future... – Bertaut 17:30, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

The Card Edit

Do we ever get an explanation as to why Giger bought the card in the first place? 05:29, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

It was in a lot with some other supplies that Giger wanted, IIRC.– Cleanse 06:28, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes, you do recall correctly :) – Morder 06:33, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Removed Edit

  • Jake writing Kira's speech to the Agricultural Delegation can be a tribute to Gene Roddenberry, who while serving as a police officer wrote the speeches of his police chief.

While possible - let's find out if it was true before we speculate — Morder 07:56, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

  • The baseball card was sold as part of Lot 49, a likely reference to Thomas Pynchon's The Crying of Lot 49
Speculation unless cited with a source.--31dot 19:37, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

The Card's Value Edit

I think it should be noted in the background that the card's present day value is around $26,000. [1] Would this be appropriate? 10:58, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

Unless it was mentioned in canon, no. We only mention what was said in canon. If you had a link to a page with that information you could post that. I would also say that such information would probably be better suited on the page for Willie Mays.--31dot 11:01, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
Wow, what a rehearsed, robotic response. Canon has about nothing to do with the comment/question. --Alan 13:24, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
Um....OK, it wasn't "rehearsed" and I was trying to be polite- if you would prefer I beat it over them, then I will....anyway, I think canon does have to do with it, as we don't mention real world information unless it was said in canon. I don't think that today's value of the card was said in the show(or discussed by an authority from the show), therefore we don't mention it.--31dot 22:25, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
Personally, I'd think that something like this would be interesting background info. Since the value of the card is a major plot point in the episode, I think it's relevant. —Josiah Rowe 01:00, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
The value of the card in this show, however, is in Sisko's appreciation for it, not the monetary value. While the fact is interesting, I really don't think it belongs. If there was a page about baseball cards, or collectibles, it would fit in there, perhaps. ---Derekbd 00:07, March 4, 2011 (UTC)

Federation Ship Edit

In Act One there is a strange federation ship in the background, it looks a bit like an intrepid with three warp nacelles. Could someone shed light on this? 05:26, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

Yeager type. --OuroborosCobra talk 05:31, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

Klingon Opera Edit

Can anyone comment on the origins of the Klingon Opera heard in this episode? It sounds like a real opera, human albeit, but real.-- 03:19, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
