Avery Brooks doubled as director for this episode, which was originally broadcast on December 3, 1994. DS9 hosts the annual Bajoran Gratitude Festival, with Next Generation's Lwaxana Troi (Majel Barrett) among the guests. During the festivies, an epidemic of Zanthi Fever erupts, imbuing everyone on board with heightened romantic passions. No one is more susceptible to the fever than Lwaxana, who once again sets her cap for the Wrong Man, in this case, Odo. "Fascination" was scripted by Philip La Zebnik, from a story by Ira Steven Behr and James Crocker.
