Just after the opening credits, as the episode title appears a starship can be seen circling Deep Space Nine. It is an Intrepid
class starship, the most famous of which is the USS Voyager
. Just before Doctor Bashir's parents leave the station, a Nebula
class starship is seen on one of the lower pylons. Finally, at the end of the episode, two Excelsior
class starships are seen circling the station and an Ambassador
class is shown docked on one of the upper pylons.
