Trivia

The opening scene takes place on the same set where Neil Patrick Harris, playing Barney Stinson, sang "Nothing Suits Me Like a Suit" in the episode "Girls vs.Suits", S5:Ep12, of "How I Met Your Mother". In fact, the opening shot of this episode pans from virtually the same camera perspective as the finale of the HIMYM musical number. See more »

Goofs

Kelly calls Talla "Alara" during the deflector test. This suggests the script was at least initially written before Halston Sage's departure from the series. See more »

Quotes

Topa: What is a "relationship"?
Lt. Cmdr. Bortus: It is what comes before the egg.
