  • The inner workings of bioloid Aeryn was created using tripe, or the insides of animals, for a more organic look.
  • This episode features the first appearance of bioloids, which would come into play during the "We're So Screwed" trilogy.
  • Though Raelee Hill already knew that Sikozu was some form of artificial life form, she didn't know she was also a bioloid until the end of the day when Crichton shoots bioloid Aeryn.

"My name is John Crichton. An Astronaut. Three years ago I got shot into a wormhole. I'm in a distant part of the universe, aboard this living ship of escaped prisoners, my friends. I've made enemies, powerful, dangerous.

Now all I want, is to find a way home, to warn Earth. Look upward, and share the wonders I've seen".
