Trivia

Error in geography. Near the beginning of the episode, General Naird stops at a convenience store on his way to Space Force base. When he drives away from the store, he passes Joshua trees (yucca brevifolia). There are no Joshua trees in Colorado. They are found in only two places in the world; Israel and the Mojave desert. The scene was filmed at a set in Lancaster, California. See more »

Goofs

It is said to Mark Naird that four star general is the highest rank that can be achieved in the US military. Actually the highest rank is five stars. For the Army, the highest rank is General of the Army, for the Air Force it's General of the Air Force, and for the Navy it's Admiral of the Navy. None of these has been awarded since World War II since they are war-time only ranks. Beyond these is one higher rank, which has only been awarded twice. That rank is General of the Armies, which was awarded to General John J. Pershing during WWI, and posthumously to George Washington in 1976. See more »
