  • Trivia

    • This episode has no dossier scene.

    • Earlier it was established that someone in the sound-suppression system wouldn't hear anything but the sounds beamed at them. But in the theater, Vados calls out "Stop!" and Kuro hears him before Barney turns off the suppression system.

    • Trivia: The briefing tape doesn't self-destruct - Jim tosses it down a heating vent.

    • The sound envelope is referred to as a "radar" device. Radar has to deal with the transmission and blocking of radio waves. Correctly the term used should have been "sonar", which refers to sound.

  • Quotes

    • Usakos: I don't know how long you are going to continue stepping on my lines. I am trying to control myself but I am operating under a most difficult handicap.
      Rollin-as-Enzor: Yes--lack of talent.

    • (after bribing a guard)
      Enzor: I was so frightened I almost forgot--in this country there is always one acceptable explanation for such matters.
