Did You Know?
This episode originally ran short, so new footage was added later, including the scene with Dione in Sandra's quarters, as well as all scenes aboard Dione's spaceship at the episode's start. In addition, the ending was changed; originally, Koenig had simply given Talos the coordinates of the Bethan gunship, sparing Alpha, which was changed to Koenig's sneaky ploy of taking matters into his own hands.

Two planets. Be nice to have a choice, wouldn't it?
