TRIVIA:

This episode contains the series' last ever Turbo Boost. The jump itself was previously seen in the episodes THE TOPAZ CONNECTION, NOBODY DOES IT BETTER and LOST KNIGHT, but is cut from the US syndicated versions of this episode. This is also the last time we see K.I.T.T. in Convertible Mode.

Devon paraphrases Mission: Impossible in this episode: "Should you or one of your people be caught or captured, the Foundation will disavow any knowledge of your activities."

Miguel Fernandes played opposite David Hasselhoff in the television movie Gridlock, and co-starred with Peter Parros in the series Adam-12.

SCRIPT TO SCREEN:

Lisa Corrales is described in the script as "twenty-eight, an attractive Latina in chic, casual clothes." Raoul, her partner, is described as "thirty, fiery, zealous, shoulder holster, slacks, open shirt (not fatigues)."

Colonel Peralta was originally a corrupt General.
