    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Hawk: (as the interrogator leaves Power's cell) If you've harmed him, there's no place on the planet you can hide from me!
        Interrogator: He's strong, haven't met anyone like him. He'll survive, not that it'll make much difference.

      • General Briggs: You know, we had a theory about why we lost that war. Same problem they had back in Nam. Songs, Colonel. No good war songs! In Nam all the songs were on the other side. Same when we fought down south. Neither war had a good song, so we lost. Maybe that's what's wrong now.

      • Captain Power: Your General's mad. I've been here for five minutes and I can see it.

      • General Briggs: We have a duty to remain safe until the President calls!
        Captain Power: The President?! General, the government's gone. You have resources- supplies, weapons. There's people fighting out there right now without much more than their bare hands. That, and a little courage! But I guess you wouldn't know about that.

      • Hawk: (hearing an alarm as they break into the power generator) Think that's for us?
        Captain Power: What do you think?
        Hawk: We're still alive.
        Captain Power: It's not for us.

      • Voice of Powersuit: Captain, sensors indicate no exit. You are surrounded.
        Captain Power: Tell me about it.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • While he waited for the Bio-Dread troopers to find him the General sings The Road to Tipperary, which was a patriotic song sung during the first World War.

      • Lord Dread: Chapter four. And the Machine was given unto men. The Machine was perfect of line and elegant of form. And the Machine said, 'This is my gift to my people, that they may throw off the bonds of flesh.'


        This is purposefully reminiscent of Genesis in the King James Bible.
