SFX

Another Time, Another Place This Episode

Large domes (greenhouses?) are seen in the This Episode segment of the titles; these are not in the episode.

The scene where the crew leave the "full sized" Eagle is reused in The Testament Of Arkadia. The Eagle is a foreground cut-out.

Science

Another Time, Another Place

It would be hard enough to fit two brains in one skull, let alone wire them both in. This over-literal detail was added over writer Johnny Byrne's objections. The thermographic scans seem to show just two hemispheres of a normal brain.

Continuity

Chronology:

Alpha Personnel:

Another Time, Another Place

1 fatality, Regina Kesslann.

The "Earth" Alphans suffered several fatalities: John Koenig, Alan Carter, Regina Kesslann, Helena Russell.

Alpha Technology:

Eagles:

Unnumbered Eagles travel to the second Moon and Earth

Planets:

Earth (a future or alternative future?). This is the Earth, but not the world we knew. It's an Earth where perhaps we never existed. Or perhaps we have yet to be born.

Aliens:

None

Errors

Another Time, Another Place Another Time, Another Place

The background is mismatched in this sequence. In long shot, Helena (or her double) is immediately in front of the door. In close up, she is some distance in front of it. Also, the double's hair style is much "bigger" than Barbara Bain's (thanks to James C.).
Also note: Alpha's gravity towers (as seen in Black Sun) are seen on Earth. Why? Perhaps they function as radiation shields.
