- The story takes its title from a prayer of confession found in The Book of Common Prayer.
- This story contradicts multiple novels by stating that Sarek was still an astrophysicist, not a diplomat, when Spock decided to attend Starfleet Academy. This information does, however, tie in with deleted dialogue from the script of TOS episode: "Journey to Babel".
