Episode Notes
"Bringing Home the Beacon" was director Rowan Woods's suggestion for the title of this episode. He won the bottle of whisky given to the namer of each episode.

Francesca Buller's costume was created by Lou Elsey, and included thigh high boots with two-inch stiletto heels bought from Sydney's House of Fetish store.

Francesca Buller based her performance in part on Cate Blanchett's portrayal of English Queen Elizabeth in the movie Elizabeth, and partly on Alice Krige's performance as the Borg Queen in Star Trek: First Contact.

Rebecca Riggs enjoyed the chance to rehearse Grayza and Ahkna's scenes with Francesca Buller. However, since they were both in make up throughout, they didn't recognize each other later that evening once they got changed!

Gigi Edgley's original make up as the changed Chiana was more extreme than the version used. She tried it and went on set, but nobody knew who she was.

Although Raelee Hill knew that Sikozu was some form of robot from the start of the season, she wasn't told that she was a Bioloid until the end of the day when Crichton shoots the Bioloid Aeryn.

The insides of the Bioloid version of Aeryn were created using tripe (animal insides) to simluate the organic workings of the creature. Dave Elsey recalls that director Rowan Woods kept calling for more tripe!
