Trivia Edit

  • The Emissary's method of communication via eerie music is very similar to the aliens in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind".
  • "The Misfits" was the name of Jem's rival band in the Eighties cartoon series "Jem & the Holograms".
  • Disparition recorded a custom musical intro and outro for this episode.

Proverb Edit

Today’s proverb: Ever wondered how a plane flies? Well, the answer is that no one knows. Pilots are scared to ask. If we ask, maybe it'll stop working.
