**** However Cosmonaut's pistols were still intended to be used only on land-and for their normal purposes rather than as a way of emergency propulsion. While NASA landed its astronauts in the ocean, Cosmonauts landed on dry land in the wilderness, leaving them potentially vulnerable to wild animals until they were picked up. Having a gun meant they could protect themselves if attacked, in addition to acting as a signal to their location.

* The series is generally realistic is its violence and the results of which upon the human body (I.E. despite being cool and {{Badass}}, Spike still gets shot and cut all the time and suffers somewhat realistic physical damage to himself because of it, requiring recuperation). How then, after getting thrown backwards and upside down out of a church window which must have been somewhere between 50-150 feet off the ground, and landing most likely head-first upon stone/concrete, on the middle of a staircase no less, does he just get wrapped up in big band-aids, lie around for a week, and then is right as rain. And this was in one of the most serious episodes in the show no less.

*** Word of God seems to be that MPU is indeed downloaded from the satellite to Ed's computer.

** It may be a moot point anyway, since official sources have avoided confirming that that even ''is'' her given name.

*** This is ''mostly'' an issue with the dub- in Japanese, the shopkeeper offers 200 woolongs- still not what you'd expect today, but she's probably looking to resell for a profit, and we don't know what post-Gate accident canine demographics look like.

** The 'frying' is probably a remnant of Dai Sato's original draft- apparently twice as long as it should've been and later adapted into a novel. Incidentally, the fusing brains thing isn't far off that version.



*** WordOfGod is that Chinese and English are the standard 'official languages', though others are clearly still spoken.



*** Nope, sorry, wrong. This is a myth perpetuated by Nasa "survival tests" from the 1970's. NASA never actually gave anyone pistols because the risk of catestrophic accident was just too high.

** I'm pretty sure the program itself was with the bad guys, the chip is worthless without it.

* Does no one else think that Spike is wrong for what he did to Vicious? It seems like they were friends and Spike backstabbed him like that. It's not like they could claim Spike has the moral highground since they were both in The Syndicate. Yes, Vicious is an evil bastard but Spike kinda has it coming.

*** It can't be the Bewbs because she doesn't seem to be either of their types. Also, despite her competency as a bounty hunter, she still comes off as not contributing as much as she takes.

** The gate incident happened in 2021, Faye's accident was never stated to have happened at the same time. All we know is that all records of it are gone due to the gate incident

*** Not NASA, but the Soviets did provide their Cosmonauts withe firearms as part of a survival package. Additionally, they also mounted a machine gun on one of their space capsules for test firing.
