Pilot (1)

Aired Unknown Oct 07, 1998 on UPN



  • Trivia

    • In the pilot episode when the Russian commandos are boarding the Russian freighter supposedly on the open sea, you can see dock lights reflected in the not-moving water.

    • In the opening shot we see the Sphere drifting through space with a dead chrononaut. How'd they ever recover the Sphere?

    • In later episodes it'll be constantly referenced that Donovan is Frank's potential back-up as chrononaut, etc. But in this episode there's no indication that he was ever considered for or tested for the position. This seems odd given how desperate they are here.

  • Quotes

    • (referring to his Backstep tattoo)
      Frank: I've been in every foreign capital in the world, drunk, and I've never gotten one of those things.

    • Frank: Doc – there are certain outer molecules of my body that I wouldn't exactly want to part with just yet.
      Mentnor: Your testes. They'll be intact.

    • Frank: All this genius and you guys can't keep the air conditioning running.

    • MIB #1: If you meet our criteria, you'll leave this island - today.
      Frank: But I thought I was crazy.
      MIB #2: Are you?
      Frank: Not crazy enough to get involved in an operation you want a crazy man for.

    • MIB #1: (Frank) actually scored higher than he did under normal conditions.
      Talmadge: Talk to me.
      MIB #1: He's a jerk. Sir. A real problem personality.
