The octagonal storage containers contain a device, with what appears to be rotating red lasers inside a long glass tube, both of which are seen on the Visitors' mother ship, later made regular appearances as set dressing and props on Star Trek: The Next Generation

When the mother ship is approaching and we see a group from behind as they are watching it, Robin Maxwell leans in to her mother and puts an arm around her. In the reverse shot, she is hugging her mother. Then we cut back to behind them and she leans in and hugs her again. This is because there are two different actresses playing Robin during this scene. The shots of Robin from the front are of Blair Tefkin
, who played Robin the entire duration of the series. The shots of her back during this scene are of Dominique Dunne
, who was strangled to death by her boyfriend after a few days of shooting. Director Kenneth Johnson
kept the reverse shots in her memory. See more
