As you can see this is not a regular summary. According to MA a literal episode text is not wanted but I just wanted to try someting else, turning a episode into a pocket book version, but before I go further I wanted to know the opinion of the archivists. It is not an easy task and I simply want to prevent that the summary is removed after I am finished. Besides that the summary would be a lenghty one. Any objection against this kind of summary form ? -- Q 20:46, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I personally don't like it - it's nothing personal, but I don't think that this style (and also level of detail) is appropriate for MA. -- Cid Highwind 11:20, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Well, it was just a trial of my part but I agree that this style is not conform MA and it would be simply to long and to much work. I now changed it like most summaries are written. -- Q 11:41, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)
While this episode summary is written up quite nicely, it's inappropriately long and detailed. By the time I finished reading through it, I could well have watched the better part of the episode itself. --Horseshead 11:10, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

Marina Sirtis as prostitute Edit

Did Marina Sirtis really play the prostitute? I checked the episode and uploaded a pic here: Ancient West holograms and I don't think that this is Marina Sirtis. Where's the information of her having played the prostitute from? Or was that just somebody's observation?--Jörg 18:40, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

I removed the note based on the discussion linked to by Jörg. Here it is for reference:
  • The prostitute who greets Worf and Alexander when they first enter Deadwood was in fact played by Marina Sirtis, which probably contributed to Worf's displeasure with Barclay, as he had a bad habit of placing simulations of real people (particularly Deanna Troi) in his holodeck programs.

Picard's UniformEdit

What's up with that purply grey uniform he's wearing? If you guys know, maybe you could stick it in a Background Information section. :) -- 00:13, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Or better yet, reference it in Starfleet uniforms. --Alan del Beccio 00:22, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

PNA Edit

Article summary needs putting into a standard act format. -- Michael Warren | Talk 15:58, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Question Edit

The way the article is now it says Picard is playing a flute, then it says he changes his clarinet into an oboe... did I miss a step? Which is he playing, a flute or a clarinet? Can someone id which?

And also is no structure format better than the different format it used to have long ago when I read it? – Saphsaph 12:07, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

The change of clarinet to oboe refers to the computer-played accompaniment. -Ahruman 01:44, 10 February 2009 (UTC)


Think that Frank Hollander was based on Doc Holliday? He was known to have a short temper and was quick to the draw. [1] He even kinda looked like him.

Watching the episode will answer your question.--31dot 02:10, February 1, 2011 (UTC)
