Goof: The episode starts with a box that reads "Midnight - Wednesday - Washington D.C." but you can see a little piece of the sky on the left top corner of the building and it is actually blue.
There was either an editing error or a cost-saving measure--the same change sequence was used for spin no 2 in the episode and one where Diana escapes from a moving car--she has on a dress in the latter, but her slacks can be seen in the explosion of light as she spins.
Goof: In this episode, the coordiantes given for the Nuclear Testing Facility are the same as those given for Paradise Island in the Season 1 episode "The Feminum Mystique (2)".
Goof: While Steve's and Diana's plane is experiencing problems as they are flying in the Bermuda Triangle with the scene set in the cockpit, the background sound is that of a propeller plane instead of a jet, which is what they are flying.
While Diana and Steve are flying to the Bermuda Triangle, Steve mentions that his father had disappeared once in the Triangle and he says to Diana "If Manta was behind that... maybe I'll get a chance to even the score" - now, Manta is about the same age as Steve so it seems unlikely that he could have been behind Steve's father crash if Steve wasn't even born back then. The episode happened in the 40's during WWII in the first season of Wonder Woman (Episode 1, Season 1).
Ray Manta is part of the organization known as ICOPE, the International Confederation Of the Power Elite (an obvious play on words in comparison to the IADC that Diana and Steve work for).
The scenes of the advanced underwater craft that Ray Manta used in his attempt to destroy the Navy battleship were stock footage of the submarine Seaview, the icon of the 60's sci-fi series, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
The underwater scenes, which were supposed to be in the ocean, were very obviously filmed in a pool.
When Wonder Woman changes from the wet suit back to the regular costume, it's obvious that the transformation is nothing more than the film reversed from her transformation from the regular costume to the wet suit because of the way her hair moves.
Ishida has a copy of the Tempo magazine which was first featured in the previous episode, "Anschluss '77".
Goof: When Steve leaves his office to go and supposedly meet Wonder Woman in New Mexico, he takes the letter she left in his office with him. However, in the next scene in the IADC, we see Joe give the letter to Diana.
Goof: The flashbacks to the 1940's show Wonder Woman in her 1970's costume instead of her old 1940's version.
The items found by Wonder Woman at the shrine (puzzle, magazines and posters) were not just props but items that were sold to the public during the show's years on the TV.
Each time Diana transforms into Wonder Woman in this episode, the flash of light isn't bright enough and you can see that the film is spliced together.
Goof: The time limit stated by a Nazi to Wonder Woman/Diana before an explosion was two minutes but it was much shorter than that going by onscreen action.
Joe's daughter, who lives in Los Angeles, is first mentioned in this episode. She will play a major role the season two episode, "The Pied Piper".
Goof: When we enter the Doctor's cloning lab for the first time, watch the top right of your screen to see the shadow of a camera on a crane slowly drop into view.
In the scene where Wonder Woman hangs underneath the helicopter as it flies off, that is actually Lynda Carter, who plays Wonder Woman, you see and not a stunt double!
Joe Atkinson mentions that during World War II, he was an agent in the O.S.S. intelligence service.
This is the only episode to have received an Emmy nomination on the entire run. Donfeld was nominated for his outstanding costume design.
