Trivia

When Roslin finds out that she has cancer, there are ships flying above the Doctor's office. One is making a landing and is the 'Serenity' from Joss Whedon's Firefly (2002). Actually it is a Firefly Class space ship or vessel from the series "Firefly" and the movie "Serenity" not necessarily the "Serenity" herself. Supposedly there are 40,000 Firefly class vessels still in use. See more »

Goofs

In the opening credits, there is an error when "Production Designer Richard Hudolin" appears. It appears as "Prduction." See more »
