  • Notes

    • Just as the closing credits start to roll, the following message appears on the screen: The United States Air Force stopped investigating UFO's in 1969. After 22 years, they found no evidence of extra-terrestrial visits and no threat to national security. This message would appear at the end of every episode from this one until "Space Croppers".

    • The episode ends with Troy and Dillon being called away on a mission, leaving the children with Jamie. This actually leads directly into the next episode, which begins with Troy and Dillon reporting for their assignment.

    • The ending, with its flying saucer, is eerily similar to the finale of Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

    • Adama calls Troy by his boyhood name, Boxey.
