Trivia

'Richard Hatch (I)' voiced his concern about his character Apollo being so square and Starbuck being the focus of the majority of episodes to story editors Jim Carlson and Terrence McDonnell. They promptly reversed the names of the main characters in the second draft of 'Experiment in Terra', turning yet another Starbuck adventure into an Apollo story. See more »

Goofs

Starbuck and Brenda are searching for his Viper in the middle of the night. The next shot of the praesidium building shows that it is day time. Later, we see Starbuck and Brenda still driving around at night. See more »

Quotes

Capt. Apollo: I came from a world where the people believed that the opposite of war was peace. We found out the hard way that the opposite of war is more often slavery.
