Trivia

April Curtis, Bonnie Barstow's replacement, is introduced in this episode but is not explained why she is there. In reality, Patricia McPhearson, who played Bonnie, was written out due to disagreements with the producers but with lobbying by fans, David Hasselhoff (Michael Knight) and Edward Mulhare (Devon Miles), Bonnie was written back in. While April's departure wasn't explained, Bonnie's return appeared as returning from a university where she had been studying although this isn't exactly explained in the episode (Knight of the Drones Part 1 from season 3) where she was persuaded by Michael to return to the Foundation.

Goofs

When K.I.T.T. scanned Goliath for weaknesses, he could only find one "vulnerable" spot - the hitch pin - that was later attacked with the laser. Yet he was able to use his laser on the rear loading doors on the trailer to weld them shut - how could the laser melt the doors if they were fitted with the secret impregnable material that made Goliath invulnerable?

Quotes

Michael Knight: Kitt, how big is that weak spot, where the trailer and tractor connect?
KITT: [showing it on his viewscreen and highlighting the area] No larger than a quarter.
Michael Knight: Even David had a bigger target when he went after Goliath.
