Episode Notes
Jonathan Frakes (Commander Riker) and Terry O'Quinn (Admiral Pressman) were born only 35 days apart. However, it is strongly implied that Pressman is at least 15 to 20 years older than Riker.

Episode Goofs
Will Riker tells Admiral Pressman that he has had his beard for 4 years. However, he first appears with the beard in the first episode of the second season of Star Trek: The Next Generation, which would be six years before this episode.

Episode References
While having a drink in his quarters with Admiral Pressman, Picard mentions that he hadn't met Will Riker until he first came aboard the Enterpriise at Farpoint, which takes place in the first season episode "Encounter at Farpoint".

In "These are the Voyages..." (the final episode of ST:Ent) Commander Riker is shown trying to decide whether to tell Captain Picard that the Pegasus was lost testing cloaking technology in breach of the Treaty of Algeron.
