  • The guest actors section of the infobox needs a citation as there isn't one in the prose for the guest actors.
  • Also, I don't see a source for any of the production credits in the body of the text, either.
  • I've added citations for the guest actors and production credits into the infobox. Miyagawa (talk) 14:37, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Plot section: Enterprise needs to be italicized at all references.
  • Production section: Is there any information about makeup? Particularly for the Devil and Fek'lhr appearances it would be helpful to include what went into the costuming for the episode.
  • Just checked Michael Westmore's makeup book and unfortunately while it does have a picture of Fek'lhr in the Klingon section, the text doesn't mention it. As for the devil, there's no mention of it at all. Miyagawa (talk) 14:32, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Reception section: "He thought that the episode felt more similar to an original series story than a normal Next Generation story, and that was due to the episode's origins." -- How do TOS and TNG episodes differ? It might be helpful to include a line or two of context, as this is confusing criticism to someone who isn't familiar with one or both shows.
  • Memory Alpha notes a number of sourced additions which could be included, notably the producers discussing how the script evolved from the original version and how the cast reacted to it. You should be able to "borrow" from them and format the sourcing for here.
  • Problem is with the Memory Alpha information for the majority of this is that it doesn't specify exactly where in the unofficial guide it says, so we don't have any page numbers etc. I'm beginning to think I need to add another book to my collection. Miyagawa (talk) 11:39, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Also, there's a sourced addition there noting that this episode was well recieved at the time. You'll need to corroborate that with the negative reviews in "Reception."
  • It might also be good to note the video and DVD release dates.
  • Added them, and then realised I already had - just I'd left the reception section as "Reception" and not "Reception and home media" as in other episodes. I've fixed that now. Miyagawa (talk) 11:39, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Dup links tool returns two results: USS Enterprise and Paul Lambert
  • That should be fixed now. Miyagawa (talk) 11:39, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Dab links tool returns no problems. Checklinks tool shows no problems.
I am placing the article on hold pending improvements. Will check back. —Ed!(talk) 15:29, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Would it be possible to put this one on hold on an semi-extended basis for another week or so? I found a reasonably priced copy of the unofficial guide on eBay and so now I'm just waiting for it to arrive. This should allow me to add those missing parts from MemoryAlpha to the article.

Great work. Passing the article. —Ed!(talk) 17:11, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
