The Show

Behind the Scenes

This episode was written by the series' Associate Producer, David W. Rintels, who previously wrote for another QM series, The F.B.I., under the pseudonym of 'Pat Riddle'. Rintels claims he used the pseudonym because he was not a fan of the FBI or what they stood for.

Allusions and References

It may be a blooper, or it may not be, but in a scene where Vincent and the alien leader are talking, Roy Thinnes calls the alien leader 'Mr. Ryder'...the name of the actor playing the alien leader is Alfred Ryder.

Memorable Moments

In a very odd situation, Vincent asks the aliens to kill a human being. He has the alien leader command a saucer to blow up the plane being flown by deranged General Concannon. While the plane blows up and Concannon is killed, and the bomb prevented from dropping, it also results in the death of Vincent's friend and ally, Colonel Harmon.
