    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • As Straker looks at his paper map against the wall of SHADO HQ, he says the guard was killed and points to a place on the map. However, when he and Foster left the guard, he was still alive and being attended to by another guard.

      • Goof: Communications are drowned out by sunspot noise during the lunar sunrise, yet moments later, Straker and SHADO have completely clear audio and video when they learn about the destroyed UFO. While it is possible they were informed much later, there is nothing onscreen to support or invalidate this possibility.

      • The Moonbase personnel use some sort of walkie-talkie instead of the wire-boomed microphones usually seen in other episodes. Nina Barry also uses another communications device, ostensibly the silver box female Moonbase personnel wear on their belts (previously shown in "Identified" as some kind of cosmetics kit).

    • QUOTES (3)

      • "Mike Billington": Well, I've heard of method acting, but you take the coconut!

      • Henderson: They're gonna want some answers. You're sending me up there with nothing. What do you expect me to do, stand up and give them a couple of choruses of "Lover, Come Back"?

      • Miss Ealand: I could always phone down with some excuse to get you off the hook.
        Straker: Well, can you think of a good one that might do the trick?
        Miss Ealand: Fire in the studio?
        Straker: No, it would take at least an earthquake to get one angry general off my back.
        Miss Ealand: Nuclear attack?
        Straker: That might do it, if it was a big one.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Ayshea's character is a Moonbase operative in this episode, complete with a purple wig, instead of working in SHADO headquarters as she usually does.
