Notice that the pregnant woman in the bar was drinking some sort of fermented milk; fermentation results in an alcoholic beverage. Many Central Asian people, such as the Turks and Mongols produce this type of beverage, most commonly known as koumiss. It has an alcoholic content which ranges from .7% to 2.5%, whereas a typical beer has about 3.5% to 7% alcohol.
The bridge set gets updated, supposedly as a result of repairs and redecoration from the Magog attack in the episode "The Widening Gyre (2)".

Andromeda Ascendant's official designation in the Commonwealth Fleet is: Glorious Heritage Class Heavy Cruiser XMC10-284.
When Beka asks Tyr what he did when he took the Maru for three weeks and they found him being hunted by the Drago-Kasov Pride. She is referring to the events of "Music of a Distant Drum".

The Nova Bomb that Beka is ordered to launch was the one Dylan salvaged in in the episode "To Loose the Fateful Lightning".
When Dylan makes reference to six worlds joining the new Commonwealth, many fans were confused. To date, they'd only shown or heard of five planets signing the charter (Xinti, Castalia, Scheherezade Drift, Schopenhauers world, and Enkindu.) So what's the sixth world? The mystery would be solved in the season two episode "All Too Human", when reference is made to Mobius (the world from "Forced Perspective") as a charter signatory.
The Andromeda's commanding officer immediately before Dylan Hunt was a Perseid named Captain Parim. While under the command of Captain Parim, the Andromeda was sent on a secret mission involving the Magog, and the entire crew was killed.

Rev Bem's original Magog name is revealed in this episode to be "Red Plague".
When the Magog ships are advancing on the Andromeda, Rev Bem seems to be able to detect them through smell. Even if the Magog did have scent glands strong enough to reach that distance and penetrate what I can only assume is the airtight hull, smell can't travel through space and at the time the swarm ships have yet to punch through Andromeda's hull.
The book Beka uses to find the route to Tarn-Vedra is the one Harper and Trance took from Gerentex in the episode "Fear and Loathing in the Milky Way" earlier in the season.

It is revealed in this episode that an escape pod cannot leave the Andromeda unless the ship allows it.
This episode establishes that an avatar cannot disobey a direct order from its ship even if it chooses to.
