* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Part of the reason Catalina had to be written out was because Jewel Staite had a commitment to the Disney Channel/Family Channel (CA) series ''Series/FlashForward'' (no relation to [[FlashForward2009 the '09 series]]). Peter David knew this going in; thus the creation/reveal of Suzee. %% Do not argue with this post. If it is incorrect, then change it. %%

* DataCrystal: The Crista's consolesconsoles, the fact that Thelma's crystal is cracked helps explain her loopiness.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Radu's strength seemed to fluctuate from one episode to the next. Usually it was mentioned how he needed to be extremely careful to avoid hurting people. However, on several occasions, when Radu had this particular RestrainingBolt removed (evil Doppleganger, when he infected with an alien virus, etc.,) he and Harlan would fight and somehow Harlan wouldn't be liquified in the process.
