Background InformationEdit

  • This episode is one of the few episodes – if not the only episode – to contain the melody from the series' main title "Faith of the Heart" in the episode score. Of course, nobody cares about the background music half the time so it doesn't matter.
  • This is also the first episode to feature EV suits: costumes created only for the series' regulars that would be seen through the run of Enterprise. Despite this, the suits were always 2 sizes too short for the crew.
  • This episode's premise bears a striking similarity to TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver", to the point where the episode was going to be called "The Booger Maneuver".
  • The unknown alien ship which attacks the Enterprise is a reuse of the CGI model of a Breen warship (albeit with a different color scheme and ten more arms) which had appeared in various episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. This is the second time the model had been reused as it had previously appeared as the Quarren vessels in the Star Trek: Voyager two-parter '"Workforce".
Thanks to Shran for noticing this by watching the episode 7 times over in his basement.
