Trivia The series was intended as a literal retelling of the Nazi takeover of various countries, and the resistance movement against them. However, because of the popularity of the "Star Wars" saga and other science fiction hits, as well as the belief among network executives that U.S. citizens would not believe a fascist takeover, the network executives had the producers change it to a science fiction miniseries. Other ideas were also discussed, but discarded. See more »
Goofs In the shuttle right after Mike escapes with Robin from the mothership, Mike loops the shuttle, and there is shot of them upside-down. Robin raises her arms, apparently to keep from falling out of her seat, but the entire time her hair rests on her shoulders as if right-side up. See more »

Quotes Ruby Engels: Abraham, don't get so wound up. Nothing's going to happen. Not to you or your family. They're not doctors or biologists or even scientists. You're not involved. Anyway, it's going to pass.
Abraham Bernstein: That's what I said in 1938... back in Berlin.
Ruby Engels: But this is different.
Abraham Bernstein: [glances at his grandson wearing a Visitor Friends uniform] Is it?
