Galis Blin appears with Bajoran make-up similar to Ro Laren, with the ridge going across the bottom of the forehead. Other characters such as Kai Opaka and Sito Jaxa who appeared with this extra ridge have had it removed in later appearances.
This is the first writing credit for Ira Steven Behr in "DSN."
The title is based on the biblical story of the The Tower of Babel in the Book of Genesis. Man wanted to be closer to God so they built this extremely high tower. God was angered, destroyed the tower and punished the men by making them speak many different languages (everyone was babbling), thus beginning the various nations and cultures after all of man had descended from the same tribe since he was driven out of the Garden of Eden.
Dr. Bashir says: "I'm a doctor, not a..." just like Dr. McCoy did frequently in Star Trek (1966).
This takes place in 2369.
After he repaired the replicator at the beginning of the episode O'Brien ordered his coffee "black, double sweet".
