Characters appearing in this episode



Beck (aka the Renegade)



General Tesler



Clu (mentioned only) 


Didja Notice?


When Paige says to Beck that she bets this is the first time he's taken a nosedive head-first out of a helicopter, he seems to turn to the camera at 1:59 in the episode and look at the viewers (us!) to indicate it's actually not! (Though I'm unable to recall the episode, if there is one, when he previously did so.)


In this episode, Pavel makes use of the superweapon designed by Shaw in "Price of Power".


The large muscular, non-speaking assistant to Gorn is called Lomox. Possibly, the name is a play on "lummox", a clumsy or stupid person.


This episode introduces code worms, capable of burrowing into a program and manipulating its code.

Code worm


Paige says to Beck, "You don't know what it's like to have to wear a mask all the time." Ironic, considering he's secretly the Renegade.


Tesler rewards Pavel by giving him command of the Purgos district.
