  • Trivia

    • This episode is similar to the storyline in the blockbuster film Die Hard. This is probably because both are loosely based on the 1970's novel titled; Nothing Lasts Forever

    • The computer sounds from the computer room match those used on the bridge of the Enterprise in Star Trek.

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • With an odd number of hour long episodes to be combined into seven 2 hour syndication packages of 'movies' featuring three 2 hour long stories and four 2 episode compilations which were later sold as 2 hour video tapes, this episode was chosen to be left out, and remained unseen until a onetime appearance during a Sci-Fi Channel marathon nearly 20 years later. It remains the least seen episode of the series.

    • Ellen Bry (Julie Masters) is added to the opening credits.

    • A new producer, Lionel E. Siegel, took over and jazzed up the the opening credits with different clips and music. The theme by Stu Phillips was replaced by a more upbeat theme by Dana Kaproff; probably to help the slipping ratings.
