Victor Talmadge appears for the first time here as the recurring crewmember Kashimuro Nowaza. He goes on to appear four other episodes - "Darkling", "Displaced", "Year of Hell, Part I" and "Year of Hell, Part II", and "Relativity". He also appears in Enterprise's "Judgment" as Asahf.

It's established that Janeway's father died in 2358 but his uniform worn by the alien parasite has rank pips introduced in the 2360's, design elements (sleeve band) from the admiral's uniform which are introduced in 2369 and the Starfleet emblem/communicator of the style first used in 2371. These incorrect renditions by the alien parasite, at least the combadge style, should have told Janeway very early on that this was not her father
