Ilario's last exchange with Dax is a play on an apocryphal exchange between British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Bessie Braddock, Member of Parliament. Ms. Braddock reportedly told Churchill, "Sir, you are drunk", to which Churchill replied, "Bessie, my dear, you are ugly, and what's more, you are disgustingly ugly. But tomorrow I shall be sober and you will still be disgustingly ugly."
Odo states that there are over 900 Starfleet officers posted on the station.
Tony Dow was hired to direct this episode at the suggestion of Dow's friend, actor Bill Mumy, who previously guest-starred in the DS9 episode "The Siege of AR-558" as Kellin.
This episode was directed by Tony Dow who is better known as the actor who played "Wally" Cleaver on the classic sitcom "Leave It to Beaver".
The working title of this episode was "The Killer in Dax".
This takes place in 2375.
Jeff Magnus McBride previously portrayed Joran in the third season episode "Equilibrium".
This is the first mention of a Bolian having a wife and a "co-husband", implying that many or all Bolians practice a form of polygamy.
47 Reference: Joran says that they have to eliminate 47 Vulcans to find the killer.
Hector Ilario was born in 2353.
This episode represents the third encounter with Joran. As well as "Equilibrium", he also featured in the third season episode "Facets", where he was 'embodied' by Sisko.

Joran states that Curzon and Jadzia did not know what to do with him, while Ezri states that they buried Joran's memories as deep within them as possible. This appears to contradict "Equilibrium", which stated that Joran's memories were blocked by the Symbiosis Commission until the blocks began to deteriorate in 2371, well after Curzon's death, implying that Curzon never knew of Joran's existence.
Jordan is suppose to be a mental projection caused by Ezri's ritual and not physically there yet in many shots, he's casting a shadow!
