When Kira is showing the Starfleet-issue phaser rifle to Tora Ziyal, the chargine circuit flap flips around wildly. It is as if the editors/director thought that the error was not of enough importance to do a reshoot of the scene. Trivia section?
An anon removed this today:
- The commander of the Klingon Bird-of-Prey demands of Dukat "What is your cargo and destination?" to which Dukat replies "We are carrying replicator and transporter parts to the Dabas system." This is strikingly similar to the exchange between an Imperial officer and Han Solo during Star Wars: Return of the Jedi in which the first question is the same, and Han Solo's response is "Parts and technical equipment for the forest moon."

Unless I've overlooked something, I can find no references to this (or rather, either term in the name whatsoever) in the episode cited. --Alan 13:43, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
- The only mention of it that I can find is that he took Tora Ziyal to see a performance, when she told Kira something to the effect of "he even took me to a performance of his favorite Didactic Theater group. We sat right up in front." That was in "Return to Grace". -- sulfur 14:17, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
I'll wager 12 quatloos that the whole part where Ziyal said "...once he even took me to a performance of his favorite Didactic Theater group. We sat right up in front. He was so intimidating, no one dared to challenge my right to be there..." was cut from the episode. --Alan 15:22, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
- In the scene where Kira is comparing the Cardassian rifle to the Federation one, when she mentions the rifle's "gyroscopic stabilizers", the port on the bottom of the rifle pops open and swings for just over one second before she spins the rifle on its side, causing the port to close again. It is clear by the way the scene is shot that this was accidental.
After catpuring the Bird-of-Prey and finding out about the target priority list, Dukat says he will demand to be reinstated as Legate for that find. He explicitly mentions Legate, a higher rank than Gul, which he received later. Be that a glitch or a lapse of thoroughness, or even a carefully smuggled peak at what may be to come, it could be another item for a Trivia section. 220.127.116.11 09:16, November 16, 2012 (UTC)
