Considering that the Joes were not able to sleep in the episode, the Chandler oil rig may have been named after Raymond Chandler, who wrote The Big Sleep.
During General Hawk's dream, he told the Joes, “No special heroics.” As the Joes radio their support and the continue their flight, Sci Fi replied during the dream and the real world mission: “With you all the way, Hawk.” It is unknown if Sci Fi's line of dialogue was repeated to save time and money or if it was repeated on purpose in order to push General Hawk toward the edge of insanity during a scene that was cut due to time constraints.
Mahia, who was first seen in "Iceberg Goes South," reappears as Iceberg's date at a movie.
For some unknown reason, Beach Head was not wearing his headphones while
