Background information[]

  • Marcel Hillaire returns after previously playing Phanzig in "Condemned of Space".
  • Bob May liked that the Robot could not destroy himself because of the love he felt for Will.
  • The alien robot that is is "demolecularized" by the Junkman was the same robot body used in Hunter's Moon and The Great Vegetable Rebellion.
  • June Lockhart is only briefly seen in this episode when announcing the food lockers have been contaminated with a rust blight. Angela Cartwright and Marta Kristen don't appear until well into the first act (about 13 minutes into the episode, sans commercials).
  • When the Jupiter II lands the second time on the planet, it lands with the lower landing gear extended and they exit with the ladder.
  • Guy Williams returns for the final episode of the series after being banished for two shows by Irwin Allen for laughing during "The Great Vegetable Rebellion"
