    Notes (5)

    • John Berwick is also the voice of Wiki in this season, according to producer Lou Scheimer. His voice was played back at high speed and scrambled for the appropriate effect.

    • Wiki now talks intelligibly, albeit in the same chipmunk/high-speed voice.

    • This episode's writer, Margaret Armen, is yet another Star Trek alumni working on this series, having written 3 episodes of the original series and 2 of the animated series before this.

    • John Berwick plays yet another role in this episode, in addition to his previous role on "The Disappearing Man" and as the voice of Wiki.

    • Samantha reveals her race is are called Capellis on her homeworld.

    Trivia (10)

    • The console button sound effects featured for the Starfire ship were recycled from Filmation's Star Trek: The Animated Series archives, being the sound of the communicators from that series.

    • Sid states that since he was almost the same height as Craig, he had to wear six-inch heels to make himself look taller and more menacing, from his original height of 6'3 to 6'9 - Craig was an inch taller than him, at 6'4.

    • According to Sid Haig, the helmet which Dragos wears was originally sculpted by putting a two-compound mix which turned into foam that later hardened over his face, which was wrapped in Saran Wrap and he also had a paper towel stuffed in his mouth to keep the foam out. After it hardened some, it was cut off his face and sculpted, and parts from model planes, cars, and boats were glued on it to give it the technological look. The eye-piece also was a practical effect; whenever it was turned on it was supplied with power from a cable plugged in behind him, making it hard for him to move and allowing no shots of him from behind.

    • Writer Samuel Peeples also wrote the network-accepted pilot of Star Trek "Where No Man Has Gone Before" in which James Doohan also was featured in, as well as the Star Trek: The Animated Series pilot episode "Beyond The Farthest Star," in which Doohan's voice as Scotty was featured.

    • One of the main musical cues for action scenes in this episode and others and this series is recycled from Star Trek: The Animated Series, also produced by Filmation 5 years before.

    • In the final scene, watch Craig's face as Sid laughs on in the background - just at fade-out, you can see him starting to smirk.

    • The exploding planet shot in this episode is recycled from episode 5, "Wiki To The Rescue."

    • The plot of this episode bears more than a passing resemblance to the Star Trek episode "Wink Of An Eye."
