Trivia

Avery Brooks and Terry Farrell were not allowed to see the recreated Star Trek (1966) Enterprise set until the filming of their characters' arrival onto the ship. This was done so their surprised reactions would be genuine. See more »

Goofs

When O'Brien incorrectly identifies the officer in the bar with Scott and Chekov as Kirk, Bashir asks why a captain is wearing lieutenant's insignia. However, in the vintage episode's credits, the character is credited as an ensign. Since Bashir has previously revealed a lack of familiarity with uniform standards of the earlier era, this might well be intentional. See more »

Quotes

Dulmur: Captain, why'd you take the Defiant back in time?
Captain Sisko: It was an accident.
Lucsly: So you're not contending it was a pre-destination paradox?
Dulmur: A time loop? That you were meant to go back into the past?
Captain Sisko: Um... no.
Dulmur: Good.
Lucsly: We hate those. So - what happened?
Captain Sisko: This may take some time.
Dulmur: Is that a joke?
Captain Sisko: No.

re: Now if you call you self a Star Trex fan - this is a must see!
6 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another brilliant episode within the Star Trex saga. What a episode this one was.

Its one that you have to see if you are a true Star Trex FAN. Well written, believable, and enjoyable all at the time same with the cast from The Original Star Trex, and this present one - Deep Space Nine. Well worth watching, and a credit to all of the Star Trex series...

How they managed to merge the story and the characters between the original story line of "Tribbles" - with the Original Star Trex and together with a few of the staff of Deep Space Nine. I will never know.

I wondered who wrote the storyline for this excellent episode of Deep Space Nine? Wonderfully written.

Every one that likes Star Trex always votes for - "City on the Edge forever" - as the greatest Star Trex episode. Well take a look at this episode and always watch - "Let me be your last battlefield" episode within the Original Series of Star Trex - and you might change your mind.

Both are just as good as "City on the Edge forever".

10 out of 10 Brilliant.
