    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Venus somehow managed to see all the spheres on the planet's surface through a window that was still blocked.

      • It is established that it isn't the voice that hypnotises people (it just gives commands) and that the light from the sphere is what causes hypnosis. Yet when they were following a sphere back to it's base, they took action to block both the light and the voice, when only blocking the light would be necessary.

      • When Steve asks Venus how their patient is doing while they're both sat at the cockpit control, Steve moves his controls left and right several times, but Venus' don't move at all. They should both move together or the ship would be trying to move in two different directions.

      • The professor only identifies the other spaceship as a fuel tanker, but when Steve tried to contact it, he somehow knew the name "EF Z4".

      • When we see the second tanker in orbit, it is EF Z4 again, but the pilot clearly states that it is EF Z5.
