    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Apparently even the perfection of the Machine needs some help, since Blastarr does calisthenics during this episode! Then again, he might just enjoy martial exercises, and be doing them for fun, just as he's done previously by shooting at boulders.

      • We learn that Soaron could tolerate the acid fog of Darktown, but Blastarr was badly affected by it immediately, possibly due to the damage done to him during his birth process by Captain Power's team.

      • Vi, who we met during the episode "Wardogs", appeared, but only in a flashback.

      • We learn that there was a connection between Dr Stuart Power and Eden 2, but they are attacked before Eden 2's representative John can give them the details.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Captain Power: (when a rogue trooper pulls Pilot into an alley) Pilot, are you all right?!
        Pilot: (as she destroys the Bio-Dread) Yeah. If there's one thing I hate, it's a grabby robot!

      • Tank: (referring to the acid fog of Darktown) This reminds me of an old song, 'Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.'
        Hawk: Do us a favor- don't sing it.

      • Captain Power: (after an attack by rogue troopers) At least now I understand why our contact picked this area. You have to be crazy to come here!
        Pilot: Which would explain why they picked us.

      • Overunit: (when reporting a possible sighting of Captain Power's team) We can't be certain...
        Lord Dread: (interrupting with a shout) Then be certain! Uncertainty is not of the Machine!

      • Lord Dread: Blastarr.
        Blastarr: Yes, my Lord.
        Lord Dread: Proceed at maximum speed to Sector 19, Cross reference Theta. Take the most direct route- no diversions or delays this time, Blastarr.

    • NOTES (1)

      • The final planned scripts for Season 2 were to deal directly with Eden 2. After Dread discovers the Passages, Power has to get its people to safety and begins to hunt for Eden 2. His search reunites the Power Team with Vi and the Wardogs from Season 1. They're out after a traitor before he reveals the location of Eden 2 to the New Order. Dread does indeed learn the location of the Passages thanks to the traitor and his knowledge of Eden 2 and attacks them. The Power Team and the Wardogs lead the Passages' inhabitants to Eden 2 safely. At Eden 2, they find a highly technological paradise ruled by the Council which welcomes them. Dread now knows of Eden 2 and begins a hunt to find it, much like the Christmas Offensive of 2147 from "Retribution". When Dread forces begin rapidly closing in on Eden 2's location, possibly breaching its security, Power must convince the Council to emerge from hiding. An alliance along side all of humanity, using Eden 2's advanced technology to turn the tide against Dread, must be formed. But, will Eden 2 join the fight?
