Trivia

The scene in Fosnight's apartment where he asks Alpha what color underwear he has on and she correctly answers "Red," would seem to be a nod to Superman (1978), when Lois Lane asks Superman the same question and he gives the classic answer, "Pink". See more »

Powers is a colonel but the operative who advises her of Omega's ETA calls her "sergeant". See more »

In this episode a female android who is being trained to be an assassin escapes from a secret government agency and goes to Central City.

She gets a job at Star Labs where she meets Tina McGee and Barry Allen (The Flash), and they begin to notice something strange about her- like her super strength and x-ray vision.

This movie seems to borrow (or rip-off) a lot of sci-fi movies. Most obvious is Blade Runner (android thinks she's human), but also there's Short Circuit (she escapes and government goes looking for her) and the Terminator (android with super human powers). In fact, if this hadn't come out before Terminator 2, I would say it ripped off that movie when the female android fights a male android sent to catch her.

Anyway, this is an OK episode, but not as good as a lot of the ones that came at end of the series.
