  • Trivia

    • The submarine in the episode is an Ohio–Class Guided Missile Submarine (SSGN) named the USS Seattle. The name of the sub does not match actual Navy naming conventions. In the United States Navy, all but one Ohio–Class submarine are named after States (the other is named after a Navy hero). All submarines named after cities are Los Angeles–Class Attack Submarines (SSN).
