  • Trivia

    • When Princess Ardala presses the button after placing the crown on her head, her reflection does not move (it does not also press the button).

    • Nitpick: When Buck pretends that he is a Zygot instead of the real Buck, Ardala gets upset, thinking that she was fooled and shuts him off with her remote. But, if he was just pretending to be a Zygot, how did he make is eyes glow, then flash off?

    • Nitpick: While viewing Buck's performance in a simulated dog fight, Princess Ardala exclaims, quite impressed, that his reaction times are twice that of Draconian norms, and that it is incredible. Reaction times are the length of time between a stimulus and the reaction to it. Obviously, the longer it takes to react to danger, the worse it is, so she should have said that Buck's reaction times are half that of Draconian norms, not double.
