No new sets were needed for this episode. The train set was a reuse from Bram Stoker's Dracula
(1992), and Paramount's standing New York City street set was used for Keystone City. The staircase the crew walk up belong to New York City Subway's 42nd Street/Times Square Station, according to the sign on the back. See more
Data is shown working in the uncovered manhole to bring down the power grid, after which Geordi tells him to stop what he is doing. The very same footage is reused when Data brings the power grid back online. See more
