    • TRIVIA (3)

      • As Morrow shoes Jackie a picture of Koenig on his commlock, the position of his hands on the device change between shots. Also, the commlock has a photograh on the side in close ups but not in other scenes.

      • When Koenig enters the room in the scene of Jackie drawing, the door closing behind him doesn't make the usual Alpha door sound, but instead sounds like a wooden door behind pulled along on casters. This is due to Koenig's laughter not allowing the door effect to be dubbed in as it would drown him out on the soundtrack.

      • In the scene of Jackie sitting at a table drawing, the papers on the edge of the desk are yellow, but when Koenig and Bergman come in, they are blue.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The title of the episode is "Alpha Child." This is a dual allusion. The base is called Alpha, so it is an Alpha Child. Additionally, this is the first child, which is what "alpha" means in latin...the fist letter of the alpha bet.
