[show]As the show was made just after Gerry Anderson's previous movie, "Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (Doppelgänger)" (1969), many of the props, set pieces and even actors were used. Both the cars - Straker's and Foster's - were from the movie, as were the six-wheeled trucks. Also recycled were the spacesuits. In fact, actors Ed Bishop (Straker), George Sewell (Freeman) and Keith Alexander (Ford) were all from Doppelgänger.
- The name of the planet that the aliens hailed from is never mentioned.
- Goof (factual errors): Gravity on the lunar surface is actually 1/6 of Earth normal. The actor's movements and inertia are all wrong.
