Episode Notes
Actor David Bowers would return as Kurz in "Liars, Guns, and Money". Subsequently, he has appeared in The Matrix Revolutions and Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

The title for the episode is derived from Jeremiah Johnson - a very realistic portrayal of western life starring Robert Redford - which happens to be one of Ben Browder's favorite films.

Natalie Mendoza who played Lishala can also be seen as the entrancing China Doll in Moulin Rouge.

Deni Gordon (Neera) played the Priestess in the original Matrix film.

Crichton's joke of "Hakuna Matata" - "no worries" - refers to the motto of the characters Timon and Pumbaa in Disney's The Lion King.

Crichton calls Rygel "The Slug Who Would Be King", a reference to the Rudyard Kipling novel and the 1975 Michael Caine/Sean Connery film The Man Would Be King.

This episode contains a rare chance to see Rygel's original puppeteer John Eccleston onscreen. He plays the native running with Rygel on his arm.

The beautiful, exotic location for the scenes was found near Manley Dam.

Doug Heyes, Jr's original script didn't take into account the physical limitations of the Rygel puppet, leading to its largest CG appearance.

Composer Chris Neal used Polynesian influence in his musical score for this episode. And production designer Ricky Eyres was reflecting African designs that he had seen.
