  • Trivia

    • Goof: During the funeral service at the end of the episode, as Adama is giving the tribute, Kronus can be clearly seen breathing in his transparent casket though he's supposed to be dead.

    • Goof: The shuttle belonging to Commander Kronus is described as being a non-military version, differently equipped than are the Galactica shuttles. But an exterior shot shows the shuttle to be 'GAL 356' yet again, which is the most-often-used Galactica shuttle.

    • Kronus commanded the Battlestar Rycon earlier in his career and was apparently retired when the events of "Saga of a Star World" occured. Kronus came out of retirement at that point to take command of the Celestra.
