Background citation Edit

From what I can gather from Amazon's preview, the (citation needed) bit about the real reason for using the old-school wheelchair might be found in the Deep Space Nine Companion. Could someone with the book check?– Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 07:34, September 8, 2010 (UTC)

Having acquired and checked the Companion (thanks ebay ;-), I removed the note:

The real reason was that the antigrav wheelchair that had already been built would not fit through the DS9 set corridors.

The information in the book (p. 93) seems to contradict this. Evan Carlos Somers claims he went with the simple wheelchair so it would be more similar to the problems modern people in wheelchairs face. There's nothing about the crew making an antigrav wheelchair; it rather suggests the crew knew from the outset that they wanted a simple chair for this episode (after learning the hard way from "Too Short a Season").– Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 10:24, November 16, 2010 (UTC)
