Trivia

The background of Tommy Volker established early in the episode- that he is an entrepreneur in civilian space flight, and an environmental advocate- is strikingly similar to that of Elon Musk. The American business magnate is the founder and CEO of SpaceX, a private space transport company, and Musk has a personal goal of creating a space-faring civilization. He is also the CEO of Tesla Motors, has co-founded a solar energy company, and is a well-known environmental philanthropist. See more »

Goofs

The car accident would have been handled by the California Highway Patrol (CHP). The fictitious CBI as a criminal investigative agency would not be called to a traffic accident. See more »
