Because of the edited recap of the previous episodes in the mini-series,
the USA Network did not give Ron Friedman credit for writing "Chaos in the Sea of Lost Souls."
A modified Cobra HISS tank was seen during the battle in the arctic. Rather than one gun turret on the back of the tank, the HISS that rescued Major Bludd was built with two turrets.
