The Grey-alien trial scene was the only part of Christy Marx's script that was not written by Christy Marx. According to producer J. Michael Straczynski "I dropped it into Christy's script because it was something I always wanted to do. I just figured, okay, if these things really ARE happening, and it gets found out, and we make contact with aliens, and find the ones responsible... somebody's gonna want to sue their butts off. So it became a very logical extension of the judicial system... And...well, it was a hoot. I'll forgive much if it's a hoot." He adds "The human won the case, but damages awarded were minimal."
