The script originally called for Orin Bartram to be captured by two bounty hunters instead of one, but this changed when the performer cast as Slyak could not appear. Director Sandy Collora, who would have played the second bounty hunter without any dialogue, consolidated the roles and improvised Slyak's alien language.
Croyer is the only Sedonian seen wearing a hood under his helmet. This is because the performer's prosthetics were damaged during the first take of his fight scene; rather than reapply the makeup, director Sandy Collora just covered the torn portions with the hood.
For the shot wherein Orin Jericho emerges from the sand to ambush Centauri 7, the former was being played by stunt coordinator Simon Potter. Potter had to remain buried for long periods of time and used scuba equipment to breathe.
