Trivia

When Lee shows Consul Han's card to Carter, it reveals that the Consul's first name is Solo. This is likely a subtle joke, seeing that in China, a person's family name is often spoken or written preceding their individual name, meaning that the Consul's traditional name is Han Solo. Han Solo is the name of one of the characters of Star Wars. See more »
