    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • New bug seen in this episode named Coleuptra Folgerix. Commonly called a Topped Blaster Bug. The information was mentioned by CHAS, the robot.

      • Ed Hopkins guest stars as "Chas." It's an acronym for Cybernetic Humanoid Assault System, the cyborgs official designation. Higgins tried to call it/him "Chas" to make the cyborg more personable.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Higgins: (standing on a pressure sensitive mine) Get out of here before we are both killed.
        C.H.A.S.: I was never alive. (quickly switches places with Higgins and throws him clear) You are right, Private Higgins. Some losses are unacceptable.

      • Rico: If that over-glorified toaster makes one more wrong move, I'm pulling the plug myself.

      • Higgins: Tougher than an M.I. drill Sargent. More poised than a seasoned vet. The Cybernetic Humanoid Assault System, or C.H.A.S. as he's known to his squad mates, is S.I.C.O.N.'s trooper of tomorrow.
        Rico: So much for truth in broadcasting.
        Flores: If I didn't know better, Johnny Rico, I'd say you were jealous. He is quite a specimen. Tall, dark, and aluminum.

      • (C.H.A.S. has just destroyed a large number of bugs)
        Brutto: Not bad, for a tin can.

      • (Jenkins yells that they are surrounded by bugs, but they don't see anything at first)
        Brutto: Einstein's (Jenkins) fried a fuse.
        Gossard: (Warrior Bugs start to appear all around them) This time the kid may be right.

      • Razak: You apes grab some sack time. In case you forgot, we have a war to win!
        C.H.A.Z.: Lt. Razak, I have no need for rest, therefor I volunteer to stand watch.
        Flores: A machine programmed to kiss butt, what will they think of next.
        Razak: Very well. Pvt. Flores will relieve you at 01:00. Dismissed.
        (Flores groans)

      • C.H.A.Z.: (going over each of the troopers identification) Brutto. Francis. Sargent.
        Flores & Jenkins: Francis?
        Razak: Don't nobody say a word.

      • Razak: (points on 3D map) We follow this path until it dumps us out into the bug's back yard. Then we clean out anything that crawls.
        Flores: Sector sounds hot, sir.
        Razak: Affirmative. That's why S.I.C.O.N. sent us a little help.
