  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Scout destroys the Prometheus Platform, he says that the reaction should cause "a premature implosion", or in other words, collapse in upon itself. But when the destruction of the facility is shown, it explodes, or blows outwards from its center.

    • Hawk claims his Suit malfunctioned when it told him how much power it had left. But the Suit said he had 15% left, and he reports that his power level was 50%.

  • Quotes

    • Tank: (as they fight their way into Dread's Base) I haven't had so much fun since my birthday party.
      Hawk: Hm, your birthday party was noisier.

    • Tank: (referring to Volcania) Looks like Hell, Captain.
      Pilot: (grimly) It is.

    • Lord Dread: (after the Icarus Platform destroys part of Volcania) Overmind, report!
      Overmind: Auxiliary banks, down; Primary circuits, online, but unstable.
      Lord Dread: And the Prometheus Program?
      Overmind: Operational. Resolution in 21 minutes. Dread, I... I hurt.

    • Hawk: (when his Power Suit warns him he needs to recharge) I'm okay, I just took a few dents in that last tussle with Soaron. I'm still over 50%.
      Tank: Don't worry about Hawk, Captain. He'll be standing right behind me like he always does.
      Hawk: Just make sure you don't fall on me, like you always do!

    • Captain Power: (after taking out Blastarr) Rest in pieces!

    • Captain Power: You always make the same mistake, Dread. You underestimate the human spirit.

    • Captain Power: (after they shut down Prometheus) We still have to get out of here.
      Scout: Relax, with the override code we're in complete contr...
      Captain Power: What is it?
      Scout: Overmind. It's trying to find the override circuit, and it's closing down everything to do it.

  • Notes

    • The character of Locke the data thief (played by Paul Humphrey) is listed in the credits, but he only appeared in a flashback sequence in the recap of the last episode.

  • Allusions

    • Hawk: Just like the good old days, eh buddy? Except I used to be carrying you.
      Tank: Dream on, MacDuff.

      This is a nod to the line from Shakespeare's MacBeth. It's famous line is very commonly misquoted as, 'Lead on, MacDuff'. The correct line is, 'Lay on, Mac Duff', meaning let's start fighting!
