Trivia

This episode reunites William Shatner and France Nuyen, 16 years after they co-starred on Broadway in "The World of Suzie Wong" (neither was cast in the film version), and six years after their memorable Star Trek episode "Elaan of Troyius". It also inspired Shatner's short-lived 19th Century TV series Barbary Coast (1975). See more »
