Clint Howard, who plays Muk, also appeared in Star Trek: The Corbomite Maneuver (1966) playing Balok, and as the Human Grady in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Past Tense: Part 2 (1995). Howard's appearance in this episode makes for the longest time period between an actor's first and last appearances in a Star Trek TV series (1966 & 2002)

At this time, Krem states that there are 173 'rules of acquisition'. The list has grown over time (chronologically) to 285, as evidenced in Star Trek: Voyager (1995).

This episode features only the 2nd time in a Star Trek series that we hear the Ferengi's native language. The first time we hear it is in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Little Green Men (1995).

The Ferengi never reveal their species name (at least not on camera). In fact, Ethan Phillips' character even says "Who we are is not important." This is likely to keep the continuity of canon as the Ferengi are supposedly not encountered by Starfleet until the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987).

Ethan Phillips plays the Ferengi Ulis in this episode. This would be the third time that Phillips has donned the Ferengi ears and large forehead. Phillips appeared as the Ferengi Dr. Farak on Star Trek: The Next Generation: Ménage à Troi (1990); and in Star Trek: Voyager: False Profits (1996), Phillips' character Neelix had himself surgically altered to appear as the 'Grand Nagus' Proxy.

All three Ferengi characters are performed by actors - Jeffrey Combs, Clint Howard, and Ethan Phillips - who have previously appeared in various "Star Trek" series playing characters of other species. Phillips is the only one who had a regular "Star Trek" role ("Neelix" on Star Trek: Voyager (1995)), although Combs had recurring roles on both Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) and Star Trek: Enterprise (2001).

Muk (Clint Howard) asks "Do I look like a Menk to you?" The Menk were the lesser evolved species of the planet Valakia (the Valakians being the dominant species) seen in Star Trek: Enterprise: Dear Doctor (2002).
