Next to the horrible dress Haneek sees in the clothes shop on the Promenade, the outfits worn by Yareena in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Code of Honor (1987) and Jenice Manheim in Star Trek: The Next Generation: We'll Always Have Paris (1988) can be seen. The horrible dress itself was worn by Sandra Wild in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Déjà Q (1990) and altered. It and other DSN items were sold off on the "It's A Wrap!" auction on eBay.
