  • Trivia

    • As the Eagle returns to Alpha, Sandra Benes is clearly seen in Main Mission--she even has a line. Shortly afterwards, the Eagle crashes and she is seen unconscious inside of it.

    • In Koenig's dream, as he walks down the steps from his office to Main Mission, a studio light is briefly visible in the top right corner of the picture.

    • In Koenig's dream, his name was spelled incorrectly as "Keonig" in the close up of a monitor screen. It was, however, correct in the wider shots of the same screen.

    • After the cockpit section of Eagle 1 is detatched, the open door inside still shows the rear rooms of the Eagle's main body.

    • The door in the cockpit of Eagle 1 bears the number 4, but when Alan goes to open it, the number is now 6.
