- Rick Berman: "[This episode] deals with a species for which three genders are necessary for conception. Although it might sound a little kinky, it doesn't come across that way. The episode focuses a lot on Trip, and I think that it's a very provocative episode that again deals with issues that are precursors to the Prime Directive."
