As Borgman prepares to irradiate his first fish at the beginning of the show, he orders Hansjurg to first remove the tubing. Not only is the tubing left in the tank, but in the instant before the radiation flashes, it looks as if it's still attached to the fish.
Crane is ordered to get into his wetsuit, and he angrily undoes the buttons of his shirt. The camera followed Borgman across the room. As Crane looks at the tanks of liquid oxygen, his shirt is buttoned back up.

This was Wayne Heffley's third outing as the ship's doctor.
Ross Elliot (Chairman), Al Shelly (Assistant) OR Alan Baxter (Assistant)
There's some confusion as to the identity of the Chairman's assistant. According to Science Fiction Television Series, it's Shelly, but in Irwin Allen Productions, it's Baxter.
After the drone sub attack, Crane goes to the radio shack. He distinctly tells Sparks that he has a message to send in code. Sparks gets out his pad of paper and begins scribbling--presumably taking Crane's dictation to afterwards translate into code and transmit. In the following scene, the enemy is listening to a straight transmission of Crane's voice.
At the end of the episode, the killer confesses that he sent a dummy out in the mini-sub--but in the scene with the mini-sub, you can see the "dummy" blink.
The year given for this episode is 1978.

As with the episode "Graveyard of Fear" stock footage shows Crane emerging from the Flying Sub into open water, when they're actually right on the sea bed.
The scene of the Flying Sub travelling along a coast is taken from "...And Five of Us are Left". The back view of Kowalski is actually Crewman Werden, looking through the Sub-Terrestrial Scanner. An instant later a front shot of Kowalski shows him with his hands on the armrests and the scanner in his lap.

There is a small physical blooper that was left in, either because it added a touch of realism or because they didn't want to waste time reshooting the scene. Crane and Nelson are in Nelson's cabin. As Crane turns at the knock on the door, his hand hits the telephone on the desk, almost knocking the receiver off.
The nuclear device is the same prop (with a few modifications) used to lower four men to the bottom of the ocean in "The Condemned" in Season 1.
Crane states clearly after the whale has swallowed the nuclear device that the killing zone is a fifty mile radius. However, when it does go off, the Seaview is extremely close, and it weathers the blast with a moderate lurch.
Jim Goodwin (Helmsman's voice)
Although the Flying Sub is on the sea bed, when Crane goes through the escape hatch, stock footage makes him appear to emerge into open water, when the sea bed should have been inches away.
