The ambient noise level aboard the ship was increased in the alternate time-line. Consoles and displays were made more audible, the warp engines made a dull roar sound, intra-ship communication announcements increased, the doors made a "swoosh" sound reminiscent of the sound effect used in the original Star Trek (1966) series. Set lighting was also significantly changed and darkened.
This is Denise Crosby's favourite episode.
This is the episode where Guinan first introduces Worf to what he calls the "warrior" drink - prune juice.
