Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Crichton calls the Scorpius clone that resides in his mind "Harvey", after the invisible rabbit in the classic James Stewart film, Harvey. The name was suggested by a fan website.
  • Crichton makes references to numerous movies and television shows throughout the series. Some of these include: - He bemoans the fact that [Buffy the Vampire Slayer] might be dead by the time he gets back to Earth. - He refers to Moya as "the Federation Starship Buttcrack". - He quotes lines from Apocalypse Now and Blazing Saddles. - He writes "Hi there!" on his nuke, a reference to Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. These references are named "Crichtonisms" by fans.
  • The only actor to appear in all 88 episodes was Ben Browder, who portrayed Commander John Crichton.
  • Virginia Hey was originally required to shave her head for the full-body makeup needed for Zhaan. In later episodes, the makeup was modified to include a skullcap, allowing her to grow her hair back. Besides her problems with contact lenses, the make-up itself also negatively impacted Virginia Hey's health and was a factor in her decision to leave the series.
