This episode accounts for 80% of the entire season’s blooper reel. It is general regarded as ‘the cursed episode’ by the cast and crew.
The voice for the Shiro agent was modulated to be similar to the 21st century classic ‘System Shock’ AI SHODEN.
Filming the approach sequence in zero-g proved difficult for the actors. Jinpachi Shimura was supposed to appear throughout the episode but his actor really did impact the bulkhead and spent three days in hospital with a suspected skull fracture.
