Behind the Scenes

Wallace Shawn, the actor who plays Susan's publisher Lonny Moon in this episode, has a lengthy history of TV and movie appearances. Although he looks different without all of the makeup, fans of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine will instantly be able to place his voice as that of Grand Nagus Zek, the leader of the short, bald, large-eared money-worshipping Ferengi.
