Ira Steven Behr:  FAR BEYOND THE STARS is one of those episodes that come along once a season it seems. Everyone from the cast to the crew to the studio felt we had something special. People worked incredibly long hours without complaining.

When I was down on the set, I was constantly being approached by various DS9ers who would tell me how excited they were to be working on the episode. I don't want to oversell this thing. It's still just an hour of television.

And, as with all hours of television, we had to make compromises. Time is a killer. And though we went over time and over budget, we still had to view this monster as just one episode out of 26. But given the time, the money, and the amount of work involved, I think it is something we can all be proud of.
