In the final draft script of "Canamar", Zoumas was described as "a thin, nervous alien". During a scene in which Jonathan Archer is informed he is about to be released, Zoumas was scripted to be sleeping "fitfully". However, he is clearly awake in the final version of that scene. Similarly, an unscripted line had Zoumas, speaking to Tucker, react to a Nausicaan prisoner who had sarcastically apologized to Tucker, Zoumas stating, "That was nice. It reminds me of the time I was on..." before Tucker shuts him up, which was also unscripted.
