*** In point of fact, Morse left because of multiple reasons: the extremely long shooting schedule, the quality of the scripts, and the lack of time devoted by the producers to developing the characters as opposed to hardware. In his autobiography he claims that he wasn't given any information about Bergman's back story, so he had to invent it all himself in order to have something to work with in creating the character.

* The series has the unusual distinction of being mentioned in a U.S. Supreme Court decision, in the case of ''Hudson v. [=McMillian=]'', 503 U.S. 1 (1992), where Justice Clarence Thomas quoted from an earlier Seventh Circuit decision., ''Williams v. Boles'' by Judge Frank Easterbrook (the context was less than complimentary, however, as watching reruns of the show was mentioned as a form of torture). See [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hudson_v._McMillian this article]] on TheOtherWiki.

** Anderson wanted to make a fairly straight space-colony science-fiction show. Then the executives asked if there would ever be stories set on Earth. He said probably. They said they weren't willing to allow that. Hence the idiotic setup with the moon being blown out of orbit.

* PlayingAgainstType:
** As the leader of a group of aliens heading to Earth in "Earthbound", Creator/ChristopherLee is cast, for once, in a sympathetic role.
** "Death's Other Dominion" has Creator/BrianBlessed playing the straight man to John Shrapnel's hammy ravings. You read that right, Creator/BrianBlessed GIVES THE MORE RESTRAINED PERFORMANCE.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Alan Carter was supposed to be the protagonist of the memorable episode ''Dragon's Domain'', achieving personal vindication by killing the monster at the second encounter. Martin Landau had it changed so Carter's role went to a guest actor, and Koenig killed the monster. Adding injury to insult, Carter gets beaten unconscious twice in the episode, which seems rather mean.
