Episode Notes
Log Entries:
*Captain's Log, Stardate 46071.6. We have been called to aid a transport ship attacked near Rekag-Seronia. Hostilities between two factions on that planet have intensified, threatening an important Federation shipping route.
*Captain's Log, Stardate 46073.6. We have arrived without incident at Rekag-Seronia where two members of Alkar's delegation have been waiting. They have joined us to report on the situation in the capital city.

Evidentially, resuscitation, after a medically induced death, can occur up to thirty minutes later, in this time period.

Cultural References
This episode is a twist on the novel “The Picture of Dorian Grey,” where a character lives a vicarious and debauchery life, and all his evil is transferred to a magical portrait made of him. When the portrait is destroyed, all his evils fall back on him, and he dies a horrible quick death.
