  • Rick Berman: "'Harbinger' is an episode where we rescue a strange test subject -- almost like a canary that gets taken down a mine. Except that this is a character who gets taken into our galaxy by the people who built the spheres to see how things are going." (January 04, 2004 - TrekToday)

  • Connor Trinneer: "Jolene and I had to find the truth...and how that gets created. We have had a lot of conversations about it. In fact, we shot 'the day after' scene first before we shot the rest of it. We had a lot of conversations about how we could stay true to our characters, and Jolene has the tough job in terms of how to rationalize that with the character traits that are Vulcan." (January 08, 2004 - TrekToday)
