Trivia: In the early 1990's, Roddy McDowall (Galen) was asked what happened to Burke and Virdon after the series ended, as it was abruptly canceled. He replied they found a rocket ship ship, took off, and went back to their own Earth and time.


Trivia: The Planet of the Apes TV series was filming in the same California hills the same time as M*A*S*H. Both shows were merely one hill away and over from the other.


Urko: These humans are dangerous, don't you understand that? They think that they're as good as we are.
