Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Andrew Robinson was originally intended to play Odo. However, the producers decided to go with Rene Auberjonois, instead.
  • Jonathan Frakes's character William Riker is the only one to appear in [all four] [Star Trek] [live spin-off] [series].
  • Avery Brooks is the only actor to appear in every episode of the series.
  • The number 47 pops up an inordinate amount of times on computer screens, serial numbers, dates and so on. This tradition was started by writer/coproducer Joe Menosky and was soon picked up by the rest of the production team. Menosky said that he choose that particular number because when he was a graduate student at Pomona College, Professor of Mathematics Donald Bentley proved as a joke that all numbers are equal to 47. Interestingly, the later series [Alias] also featured the number 47 many times, and incorporated it into its ongoing storyline.
  • The character Benjamin Sisko was ranked #50 in [TV Guide]'s list of the "50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time" ({20 June 2004 issue}).
