The raw materials of the ship are: 'Carbon/ Hydrogen/ Argon/ Rebillum'. Carbon and hydrogen are the building blocks of organic chemicals. Argon is an inert gas. There is no such substance as Rebillum. Strangely there is no oxygen (for atmosphere) or any metals (iron, aluminium or titanium for the ship's structure).
2 fatalities, Thompson, another pilot.
Four combat Eagles incl. Eagle 4 are destroyed
Ape-lizard animal, Alphan (L Picard), dove (partial transformation).
Archon, Varda, Malic from planet Dorca
The Archon's throne was used as Arra's throne in Collision Course and Companion's bed in The Infernal Machine. His chair is a design normally seen in Alphan living quarters (the ribbon chair, designed by by Pierre Paulin). On either side of the throne are obelisks previously seen in A Matter Of Balance and Devil's Planet
The Dorcon laser sights are identical to the Alphan laser sights seen in War Games
The laser control from The Exiles is seen on Koenig's desk
When the guards flee and the Alphans escape, Varda's body is on the floor. In the next scene, her body has disappeared. Thanks to Thomas.
