Trivia

The reason the aliens never face one another is that the actors kept breaking up looking at each other's head-pieces. See more »

Goofs

The model for the Mark IX Hawk has a small blinking light on the ventral side (the "chin" of the command module). These are used to sync laser SFX in post-production. Unlike the Eagle's lasers, no "beam effect" was added in post-production for the Hawks firing their weapon. See more »

Koenig goes berserk for the first time
27 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

If you are going to watch War Games then just don't think and go for it. The reason is very simple. It all starts with earthships attacking the moonbase. And this time it's for real, almost all eagles are destroyed as is the moonbase itself.

Towards the end of the episode it's all explained that things didn't really happen but nevertheless, there are always eagles available, strange isn't it.

Once Koenig and crew is on the attacking planet this episode turns into a bit of blah blah, a thing we have seen before in this franchise. But it's also the first time that Koenig goes berserk. Normally he stays calm and do solve problems with other worlds but this time it's him who iis destroying stuff.

Nothing special here and not that much of effects.
