  • Trivia

    • Producer David Eick had the director, Robert Young, do one take of the last scene where Lucy Lawless used her American accent, to speak to the other Cylons, instead of her normal one, adding a new level to the character. They used her American accent in the scene.

    • D'anna Biers is the sixth Human Cylon model to be revealed.

    • Gaeta's first name is Felix.

    • Dualla's first name is Anastasia.

    • The theme music for D'anna Biers' documentary is the theme from the original series Battlestar Galactica (1978). Also, at the end of the documentary the janitor is whistling the original theme.

  • Quotes

    • Adama: Sit rep.
      Tigh: Fleet's quiet. No enemy contact for the last ten days. (seeing D'Anna Biers with her camera) Aw, no Cylon contact anyways.

    • D'Anna Biers: (speaking to Roslin and Adama) So, is this a social call or are we on the verge of another coup?

    • Apollo: You heard about his death threat?
      Starbuck: Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. I just can't believe that I haven't been called in for questioning yet.
      Apollo: Oh, you were top of the list. But don't worry, I told Tigh that you wouldn't know Caprican poetry if it were hot-soldered across your helmet.
      Starbuck: "From the darkness you must fall, failed and weak, to darkness all..." Kataris, not one of his best. Can I be a suspect again? Please?

    • Bell: So how'd it go out there?
      Apollo: Well, we didn't lose anyone - that's a good day.

    • Biers: So what do you look for in a new recruit?
      Starbuck: Coordination, good reflexes, total commitment, and most of all, someone crazy enough to follow me into combat.

    • Marine: The truth is, it was a command frak-up the moment Tigh put us on that supply ship. I'm not surprised someone's trying to take out that drunk son of a bitch.

    • Biers: (regarding Baltar) What a strange little man.

  • Notes

    • This is reportedly the first time that guest star Lucy Lawless has used her native New Zealand accent as a purely fictional TV character, or 'Kiwi' accent as she describes it.

    • To prepare for the scene where Kat is pulled from the Viper while suffering from a stim overdose, Luciana Carro drank "about" 8 cans of the Red Bull energy drink, according to Katee Sackhoff.

    • As of the beginning of this episode, there are 47,853 survivors in the fleet, 2 fewer than at the beginning of the previous episode.
