TRIVIA:

Dr. Freeman works for Megafax Industries, which is also referred to in the season premiere KNIGHT OF THE DRONES.

K.I.T.T. wonders aloud whatever happened to the good old days when he and Michael Turbo Boosted fences and crashed through walls.

We learn in this episode that Tuflex-coated bullets can penetrate K.I.T.T.'s tires.

Randi Brooks and Sandra Kronemeyer starred with David Hasselhoff in the television movie The Cartier Affair. David Hedison costarred with Richard (Wilton Knight) Basehart in the 1960s series Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.

Don Galloway also appeared in the episode WHITE BIRD. Ann Turkel previously appeared in the second season as the villainess Adrianne Margeaux, in the episodes SOUL SURVIVOR and GOLIATH RETURNS. Coincidentally, the location of Bianca's retreat was also home to Adrianne and Garthe Knight in Goliath Returns.

SCRIPT TO SCREEN:

Bianca is described as being "in her early thirties and devastatingly beautiful. A woman with an insatiable taste for adventure of all kinds."

Michael's disguise (Dr. Michael Knightwood) is described as "dressed sort of egg-headishly, and even wears rather unglamorous glasses. He definitely looks different." "Dr. Knightwood" has a PhD in Physics from the Washington University of Technology, his most recent publication was The Journal of Military Science. The subject matter was Star Wars Space Weaponry. In a cut scene that shows him preparing his cover, Michael tells K.I.T.T. that "Given the choice between a beautiful woman and a good floppy disc, I'll take the floppy disc anytime." K.I.T.T. doesn't believe a word of it.
