- This information comes from a baseball card seen throughout Star Trek: Deep Space Nine on Ben Sisko's desk, notably in DS9 episode: "The Storyteller" and "If Wishes Were Horses".
- In "Past Tense, Part II", Benjamin Sisko mentioned that 2015 was Bokai's rookie year. However, the on-set prop baseball card from DS9's first season lists Bokai's rookie year in 2019, playing for Crenshaw. The logical explanation is that he played for another league previously and thus had another rookie year, unless Sisko simply did not correctly recall his trivia.

First, "The Enemy of My Enemy" ... is not my friend. But when Kirk and Kor find themselves forced to work together against a common foe, does it mean a productive alliance, or a chance for deadly betrayal? Then, Kirk and his crew venture into the past, only to discover it is nothing like their history books teach—no trace of the devastation of World War III and the Eugenics Wars.

- Section 31, the covert organization which has operated without accountability in the shadows for more than two centuries, has been exposed. Throughout the Federation, the rogue group's agents and leaders are being taken into custody as the sheer scope of its misdeeds comes to light. Now Starfleet Command must decide the consequences for numerous officers caught up in the scandal – including Admirals William Ross, Edward Jellico, Alynna Nechayev, and Captain Jean-Luc Picard who, along with many others, are implicated in the forced removal of a Federation president. Meanwhile, deep in the distant, unexplored region of space known as the Odyssean Pass, Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise must put aside personal feelings and political concerns as they investigate a massive mysterious spacecraft. Adrift for centuries in the void, the ship is vital to the survival of an endangered civilization which has spent generations searching for a world to sustain what remains of its people. Complicating matters is a band of marauders who have their own designs on the ancient ship, with only the Enterprise standing in their way...
