TRIVIA:

K.I.T.T. is mistaken for an Indian God of the Wind in this episode. Originally the God materialized as a horse, but it's 1985 -- so Blue Feather thinks he's adapted to the more contemporary form of a car.

Michael jokes that the Foundation manual (page 47, section C) states that the semi driver -- in this case RC3 -- should be behind the wheel in transit.

K.I.T.T.'s divine advice: Basic stress relaxation -- clear your mind, concentrate on your breathing. Start with what you know, as the great truth can only be obtained through small steps. Find your own path. K.I.T.T. finds being a God very demanding.

Robert Pine was a regular on CHiPs. Ivan Naranjo previously appeared in the episode GOLIATH.

SCRIPT TO SCREEN:

Susan Christopher is described in the script as "a good-looking, strongly built woman in her early thirties... She is part or all Indian herself and not afraid of the conflict or the group." Oakes is written as "a big, middle-aged businessman with a well-tailored suit and big-city attitude and language."
