- * Scott Bakula and Jolene Blalock's roles in this episode are strongly reminiscent of those of Jeff Bridges and Joan Allen in the 2000 DreamWorks film The Contender.

Berman quote Edit
I removed the following:
- In an April 2003 interview with Trekweb, Berman stated, 'Stigma' was supposed to be our gay [rights] episode, but we sort of copped out."
T'Pol lies about her infection Edit
Should it be noted somewhere, that T'Pol in fact lied about the way she was infected? The related episode shows clearly that she willingly undergoes the procedure. She wanted to end it when it became too intense, and wasnt allowed to, so there was a violation, but it would be a clear lie that she was somehow forced to start it. So she became infected due to her own free decission to try it out. Maybe thats even the point why she didnt use that defence, but in the end that false assumption saves her. I think thats an important fact. Its just that my english isnt realy brilliant. Maybe someone could place a note about it? --126.96.36.199 00:10, December 13, 2012 (UTC)
- because no matter how it started, once she withdrew her consent it became coercion. in her case too, the deepest part of the meld, which logically would be the time most likely to spread the illness, occurred after she'd withdrawn her consent. So what she said was true, it was just more nuanced than she made it seem. Mithril (talk) 02:00, March 17, 2018 (UTC)
