  • Trivia

    • This episode marks the first time we see the aliens disintegrate upon being killed which will be a regular part of nearly all the episodes to follow.

    • This episode takes place in Texas, but the location is wrong. The tall plants, called Joshua trees, are not found in Texas, but are found in California. Something else not found in Texas is the Gila Monster, a venomous lizard with a natural range that includes parts of S.E. California, Arizona, and S.W. New Mexico, not Texas.

  • Quotes

    • Closing Narration: For a moment, in the desert South of Rosario, a man and woman came together across a void of space and time. Two people, star crust from alien worlds. In the months to come, David Vincent will remember that moment.

    • Opening Narration: Three weeks since the report of the crash and strange glowing lights have brought reporters, the air force and David Vincent to the border town Rosario. Betrayed by his own kind and left to die under a blazing sun, he retains a vision of a ship launched by another kind, under another sun. Now, the air force and reporters are gone, and David Vincent remains to begin the search again.
