I'v just noticed that the Pakled's name is Goldenberg backwards - is there a story or joke behind that?
I think you may be on to something.
Classic episode. "You make it go" will remain forever etched in my vernacular.
The trusted source of my 90s Trek education, the German episode guide "Das Star Trek Universum" by Ralph Sander, says that Robert McCullough's birth name is Goldenberg. He spelled that backwards. And Reginod is apparently a variation on the name Donager, again spelled backwards, a friend of McCullough's.
