--> "Originally, we had no intention of bringing DeLeon back. As a matter of fact, we had originally intended to kill DeLeon on Mars when it blew up -- if you carefully watch the episode set in Australia "The Dream War" (I believe that's the title), you will see that DeLeon's death on Mars is foreshadowed there. One of the executives at Universal strongly objected to killing a major character so we settled for the temporary supposed death of Torres. However, an executive at Playmates found out about our original idea and really liked it -- so we killed DeLeon on the moon and then brought him back, primarily because of the Black Box idea we built into the Mars episode."

** Michael Edens [[http://www.stwing.upenn.edu/~pdanner/resolute2.shtml said this]] about Alec's death and revival:

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Despite the fact that it was produced by the mighty Universal and had a toyline backing it up, the show only lasted two seasons because of stations relegating it to undesirable timeslots- according to Will Meugniot, one station put it on at 4AM! Though it did receive reruns on Creator/USANetwork later on, one wonders why they just didn't move it there and continue it (considering they had done a similar thing with ''[=TekWar=]'' after its' initial run as part of Universal's ''Creator/ActionPack'').

A: lots of "trash TV" taking up the afternoons where cartoons went and B: the newly launched Creator/{{UPN}} and Creator/TheWB affiliating with independent stations). Though it did receive reruns on Creator/USANetwork later on, one wonders why they just didn't move it there and continue it (considering they had done a similar thing with ''[=TekWar=]'' after its' initial run as part of Universal's ''Creator/ActionPack'').

* RetroactiveRecognition: Many voice actors, with Creator/LisaAnnBeley standing out the most because of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing her distinct voice]].

** A third season was planned that would have shown the surviving Exo-Squad humans and Neosapiens joining forces to battle an invasion from another alien race but the series was unfortunately canned before that could happen - on a cliffhanger no less. They also planned a concurrent series called ''Exo-Pirates'' to run with the third season and link up at the end. After that, they pitched a movie idea, but Universal's feature dept., but they were "cool" to the idea, which was then dropped. (One wonders why they didn't try to make it direct-to-video, or even on the Creator/USANetwork- after all, that's where reruns aired and Universal had previously moved ''[=TekWar=]'' from their Creator/ActionPack to USA...)

Added DiffLines:

* PlayingAgainstType: For Universal Animation as a whole; it mainly tended to make adaptations of other media, most often Universal movies (all those sequels to ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime'', the ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'' cartoon, etc.), and tended to not be very serious. This was a completely original property, and was pretty much uncomedic.

* "Abandon Hope" (episode 2.38 title) is a reference to famous quote from Dante Alighieri's ''DivineComedy''. Dante had it inscribed at the entrance of hell, Phaeton had it on his bunker. Guess what it makes Phaeton [[{{Satan}} himself]], then.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Several voice actors later became well known. Creator/LisaAnnBeley goes on voice [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Relena]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Murrue]], and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Sumeragi]]. Teryl Rothery and Creator/GaryChalk appear on ''Series/StargateSG1'' as major supporting characters (And the latter voices an [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Optimus a few times]]). Most of the other VA's could be heard in anime, cartoons, or video games. The cartoon apparently used the UsefulNotes/{{Vancouver}} voice pool for their characters. As a result, many of the voice actors also worked with Creator/TheOceanGroup, or starred in ''Series/StargateSG1'':
** [[Creator/LisaAnnBeley Lt. Nara Burns]] was also [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Relena]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Murrue]], and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Sumeragi]]
** Lt. Maggie Weston (Teryl Rothery) is [[Series/StargateSG1 Dr. Janet Frasier]].
** [[Creator/JanyseJaud Sgt. Torres]] is [[Anime/InuYasha Kagura ]].
** [[Creator/GaryChalk Marsala]] is either [[Series/StargateSG1 Col. Chekov]] or [[Anime/TransformersArmada Optimus Prime]]!
** J.T. Marsh is Robby Benson, AKA: the Beast from Disney's ''Beauty & The Beast''!"
** Yuri Stavrogan is voiced by Creator/ScottMcNeil.
