This continues until the ship is in danger and the crew must find a way to stop them.

Background information[edit | edit source]
- This episode exploits the number 47, which is a naturally and intentional recurring number in the Star Trek episodes and movies. The joke lies in that the clashing of the holographic Amp and the android Omega's programs naturally causes an aggravation of 47 instances all over the ship.
- The individual numbers in the Stardate (59699.9) add up to 47.
- The episode title is reminiscent of the Star Trek: Voyager episode title "The 37's".
- Seifer makes a small reference to the number 42, and that it is "the answer to life, the universe, and everything". This is a reference to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
