47-Reference: As Geordi LaForge is rerouting the power flow from the transporter in Cargo Bay IV to the replicator system, the computer informs him that "Power has been rerouted through auxiliary power distribution system code number 44762".
Krios in this episode looks different from Krios as seen in "The Perfect Mate". Here, Krios is blue; in the latter episode it is green. A reference to Krios Prime was included in "Precious Cargo" for the purpose of suggesting that the blue and green "Krios"es were two different planets.
The female Romulan commander obscured by shadows during La Forge's "conditioning" is portrayed by Debra Dilley, a photo double for Denise Crosby. Crosby only provided the voice and went uncredited to help set up the character without giving away the surprise. This is the first appearance of Sela though her actual identity is obscured in this episode.
