When completed, the episode came in ten minutes too long, resulting in the editing out of several scenes. A subplot featuring Archer's previously unmentioned love interest Becky was removed entirely, and a scene dealing with Hoshi Sato's decision to remain aboard ship despite the risks was also cut.
