- Refitted for Sequel: This game picks up and uses several of the unfinished plot threads and ages from Uru, due to the mutliplayer component being Cut Short.
- Word of God: According to the developers, the Player Character is canonically Dr. Richard A. Watson, a prominent NPC from Uru Live.
- You Sound Familiar: Esher is voiced by David Ogden Stiers, who previously appeared as Jeff Zandi in Uru. He also provided the voice of Dr. Watson in that game, which means that Esher is essentially Talking to Himself.
