  • Notes

    • This episode is set in the ruins of Cape Canaveral, Florida.

    • The scientists frozen via cryonics are referred to in this episode as "The Ice People".

    • Mindok was once human, but was very badly wounded in the great catastrophe of old Earth. His brain survived via a sophisticated life support system and grew to great power as he learned to utilize science and sorcery, enabling it to live for 2 millennia, practically becoming immortal, but in need of a new body.

    • Post-apocalyptic Animal Species: Fire Whale, which has fanged teeth and can breathe fire from a forward-facing spout. It also has bony scales on its back, a horn extending from its forehead, as well as bony spikes extending from both sides of its body.
