The Computer Room originally appeared in Black Sun with some slight differences.
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.
During the space-walk, the stripes on the rescue pod are gone.
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.
The microcosm meets the macrocosm. The universe that the single complex cell of Alpha moves as itself only the interior of a brain that was huge beyond comprehension. It's a science fiction idea I find appealing, that within ourselves other universes exist.
