  • The story is continued in Stowaway, Part II.
  • The stardate given in this story actually predates the DS9 series pilot ("Emissary"), but dialogue-references in the issue place this story not long after the events of "Q-Less" (when an artifact from the Gamma Quadrant nearly destroyed the station).
  • This issue is a notable early example of the practice of releasing a variant cover, in this case a photo variant. Besides the regular illustration by Jerome Moore and Richard Ory, a collectible variant with a publicity photo of the cast was also released.
