Sisko reference Edit
The Sisko reference was from the script only and removed from the final version of the episode. Shooting scripts are good reference when dealing with spelling issues and the like, but the actual filmed episode should always take precedence. -- SmokeDetector47 // talk 23:31, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)
- Far be it for me to argue with that. Nevertheless, should that have not been mentioned when it was originally removed from the article? Perhaps placed in the background info? --Gvsualan 00:43, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Perhaps it can be placed there if so desired... I just didn't think it was that major of a point to warrant a background note, especially since it was a small throwaway reference with no bearing on the plot of the episode. -- SmokeDetector47 // talk 01:51, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I'm confused, how come sometimes in Star Trek episodes people don't understand things like when the Klingon's were speaking Klingon. Has it ever been explained somewhere why the universal translator doesn't work sometimes? I thought they were speaking Klingon the whole time, not just in the play... This has happened many times, species speaking english then all of a sudden turning around and saying something in their language... – Saphsaph 07:16, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
Would it be too speculative to suggest that Riker's dabo success most likely occurred during the visit to DS9 in "Birthright"?--Ten-pint 03:18, June 26, 2010 (UTC)
- Yes. There may be visits that we do not know of, and that wasn't the only visit to the station that we DO know of. --OuroborosCobra talk 03:59, June 26, 2010 (UTC)
Star Trek Online continuation of this story Edit
It might be noted (in the "Apocrypha" section perhaps?) that the event described in this episode which compels Alexander to go back in time, the murder of Worf on the floor of the High Council, is portrayed in the MMORPG Star Trek Online, during a series of missions (the Klingon Empire storyline episodes Empire and Warzone) in which Alexander takes the alias K'mtar (after the man who saved his father in the past, not knowing that that K'mtar was actually himself) while investigating a conspiracy among the great houses, and eventually thwarts the murder of Worf, proving Worf right in that he did change the future with his actions. The missions serve as a kind of coda for this episode, finally bringing the full story to its conclusion. --220.127.116.11 06:01, July 27, 2014 (UTC)
