* {{Mockumentary}}: It was marketed as a drama, but the film presents itself as being a dramatisation of real events -- see ThisIsAWorkOfFiction, below.

--> ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS \\
This film concerns the four-day history of a major American scientific crisis.\\
We received the generous help of many people attached to Project Scoop at Vandenberg Air Force Base and the Wildfire Laboratory in Flatrock, Nevada. They encouraged us to tell the story accurately and in detail. \\
The documents presented here are soon to be made public. They do not in any way jeopardize the national security.

** After the self-destruct alarm sounds--and [[FromBadToWorse professional decorum deteriorates]]--incidental characters flee, having observing Leavitt's ''grand mal'' seizure. One assumes, "She's got the germ!" Less dramatically (but of more significance to the plot) she'd had an absence seizure while monitoring lab results. When a substance is found to inhibit Andromeda's growth, red text flashes on a screen: causing Leavitt to "blank out" for a few seconds. She reports to her colleagues that no cultures were affected.
