"Star Trek: The Next Generation" Imaginary Friend (TV Episode 1992) Poster

Trivia

Guinan wasn't originally supposed to be in the episode, but when Whoopi Goldberg became available, her character was written in to the script one day before shooting began. The cloud-watching scene with Data was initially written for Beverly and Troi, and then later Guinan and Troi.
Noley Thornton (Clara Sutter) would appear two years later as Taya in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Shadowplay (1994).
In early drafts, Isabella was much more benign and curious than she is in the finished episode. This was changed in part due to the producers feeling the resulting storyline was dull, and also because they felt it was too similar to the earlier episode Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Child (1988).
