Main Characters in this Episode

They serve in the crew's mess and the CPO (Chief Petty Officer) mess. The ward room is staffed by culinary specialists and stewards.
- Goof (factual errors): When Harm and Mac are looking at the "missile rail" for the AMRAAM it clearly was a Triple Ejector Rack (TER) which does not hold missiles.
- Goof (continuity error): Over the radio the Reprisal tells the salvage vessel they will provide air cover until surface units reach them in ten hours. Only seconds before, the Time to Intercept countdown read 08:47.
- The North Korean "MiGs" are Northrop F-5Ns, formerly of the Swiss Air Force, used by the US Navy to simulate MiG-21s for "aggressor" training.
- The USS Reprisal (CV-59) is actually the USS Forrestal (CV-59), the U.S.'s first super carrier. Forrestal was decommissioned 11 Sep 1993. Stock footage of other carriers, such as USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) also make appearances.
