    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (7)

      • Why do Fielder and Olds take a ship to the past if they can simply teleport there (as the other time traveler does)?

      • Despite having a working time machine and 3-4 thousand years of technological advancement, the time travellers don't know they missed Earth and are an alien planet?!?

      • The title of the episode has nothing to do with nor any relevance to the episode.

      • The powers of the time travellers vary wildly: sometimes they walk, sometimes they teleport. Sometimes they simply raise their hand and freeze time, sometimes they need the medallion. Sometimes their force fields protect them (even if they aren't aware of an attack), sometimes they don't (when Steve uses the dart on Olds).

      • Despite being almost three thousand years in the future, the time travel chamber has the same swirly-radar screen thing that the Spindrift pilot cabin had in the first season.

      • Supposedly alien planet: A drug specifically named "sodium amo-barbitol"

      • In the pre-credits teaser when Barry and Fitzhugh are frozen in time going into the Spindrift, Stefan Arngrim is frozen with his left leg raised. There are several cuts back to him and his left leg is raised. However, when the aliens free him from stasis, in the last shot his left leg is down and his right leg is raised.

    • QUOTES (1)

    • NOTES (4)

      • Further Irwin Allen recyling: the time travellers' officer uniforms seem to be taken from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, while the opening time travel/computer set features much of the equipment from The Time Tunnel.

      • For the first time, someone is credited to their character's name in the opening credits (Jerry Quarry as Bron)

      • For the first time since the pilot we get a identitying subtitle prior to the credits: "In the year 5477"

      • The future earthmen's ship is the "space pod" from the 3rd season of Lost in Space.
