    • Burgess Meredith was credited as a guest star in this pilot. Hugh O'Brian was credited as the sole star, unlike in the series where O'Brian, Tony Franciosa and Doug McClure were all credited in every episode, even though only one of them would appear in any given episode.

    • Uncredited in a brief role as a flight attendant was a young Jaclyn Smith, four years before Charlie's Angels made her a star. Cheryl Stoppelmoor would later have a recurring role on Search inside Probe Control. Stoppelmoor would gain fame in 1977 when she would join Jaclyn Smith as Farrah Fawcett-Majors' replacement in Angels, by then credited by her married name, Cheryl Ladd.

    • "Probe" was not officially the name of the episode, it was actually intended to be the name of the series. However, a show in a local Eastern market was already titled Probe and the producers were forced to change the name when the series was sold to avoid a lawsuit.
