Should we really note the working title was "Untitled O'Brien"? It's not really worth noting, and it almost sounds like it's implying that was going to be the titled till it was changed. - AJHalliwell 01:12, 22 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Seems a little superfluous alright. Someone should remove it – Bertaut 20:46, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Does anyone know if the casting of Margot Rose was intentional? Seems more than conincidental that the only two episodes she's been in have identical premises.--Roofus 19:04, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Is this the first time they actually show how a phaser goes from stun to kill? I know they've shown people pressing buttons. But this is the first time I've ever seen a close up shot of the phaser while they're doing it.--ARTaylor 17:17, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Per the page on phasers "The standard level 16 setting on a type 2 phaser can be used to vaporize tunnels through rock, large enough to crawl through. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part I") The level 16 wide-field setting can easily destroy half of a large building with a single shot." Yikes. O'brien wanted to make sure the job got done, didn't he? 06:36, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Pole Edit

The summary describes him smashing the place up with a "pole" but it was a meter-long double-ended wrench with a series of holes along the handle. I was hoping this article had some designer info on what the heck that tool was used for besides knocking around empty plastic containers. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

We only have information that was revealed in our accepted sources; if no explanation of the device was given, we don't have one. 31dot (talk) 21:44, June 5, 2013 (UTC)
