Episode Notes
Guest star Hugh Keays-Byrne (Grunchlk) had starred as the psychotic "Toecutter" in the first Mad Max movie alongside Rygel voice artist Jonathan Hardy. He also auditioned for D'Argo when Farscape first began.

David Kemper knew the final image of the episode from around the midpoint of the year, and plotted backwards to reach that point.

The transformation of Crichton into Scorpius was inadvertently given away by a British science fiction magazine that didn't realize it was Ben Browder beneath the makeup, not Wayne Pygram.

The makeup and Ben Browder's impersonation were so accurate that when the producers saw the rushes from the previous day's filming, they didn't realize it was Browder. The makeup was made less accurate to emphasize the difference.

Puppeteer Fiona Gentile's vocal performance as Tocot on set was so impressive that the producers asked her to repeat for the final version of the episode.

The shot of Aeryn's chair ejecting from the fighter was added overnight by one of the CG artists working on his own time because he knew that it was needed for the sequence.

Anthony Simcoe's ADR (additional dialogue recording) for the episode was actually recorded in Paris, as he was out of the country for vacation after shooting had finished.
