      • Its not only the Andromeda that gets a refit in this episode - Beka is shown with a new, shorter hair style.

      • Goof: The Andromeda gets refit in this episode - however, they keep using the old models stock footage. Same for the old-style Slipstream. Both these old shots disappear for the most part after some episodes.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Title:


        The title is a reference to the Spanish dollar (also known as the "piece of eight" or the eight real coin) which is the silver coin, worth eight reales, that was minted in the Spanish Empire after a Spanish currency reform in 1497, and was the first world currency. As a way of making change, the coin was often chopped into eight pie shaped "bits" each worth a single real. A quarter of the coin was called "two bits", a euphemism that later became popular for the American quarter.
