Continuity

Chronology:

Alpha Personnel:

3 fatalities, Cousteau, Wayland, Kelly.

In the script cast list and some publicity material, Melita is listed as "Melita Janni" - although the surname is never used in dialogue. They are married (Koenig talks to her about "her husband"), so it is possible that Kelly is a forename; alternatively Melita may use her maiden name.

Alpha Technology:

Space Brain

Eagles:

Eagle 1 (Wayland and Cousteau, destroyed); 4 (Rescue); 7 (Koenig, fastest); remote Eagle (crashed); cargo Eagle

Planets:

None

During the space-walk, the stripes on the rescue pod are gone.

Observations

Space Brain

Several publicity shots exist of a fight between Kelly and Alan Carter in the Eagle cabin. This makes no sense in the context of the episode (as rewritten) and is not seen in the final print.

Carla Romanelli and (partially hidden behind Barry Morse) Troubled Spirit star Giancarlo Prete with the Main Mission crew. Picture thanks to Mark Spalding.

Network version Widescreen Widescreen

Two shots on the Carlton DVDs are in widescreen (with black borders top and bottom). They are zoomed in on the Network DVDs, cropping the sides of the shot.
