The title of this episode, "Wish I'd Spaced You When I Had the Chance," is a reference to the flashback scene in Season 1 where Marcus Boone threatens to space a stowaway Five. Who knew they'd become such great pals?
The creative seeds for this story were planted way back in the show's first season when the producers noted the great on-screen chemistry between Anthony Lemke's Three and Jodelle Ferland's Five. They need their own web series!
Production of this episode proved extremely challenging due to the weather that wrecked havoc with continuity, necessitating the inclusion of several CG snow shots. Technology beats nature!
Production of this episode included a rare Saturday shoot preceded by a late Friday shoot (referred to as a 'Fraturday' in the industry).
The market scenes included actual goats, llamas and at least one skittish chicken. Oh, and one cranky Three.
The original paint job on the Danker Brothers truck included red flaming racing stripes. A quick repaint resulted in a more low-key vehicle. Them's still some hot wheels!
Actor Dalmar Abuzeid, who played the role of the merchant Kandrik, had to learn manual shifting the morning of the scene in which his character drives the truck up to the Dankers' cabin. Dark Matter Driver's Ed!
The big rock Three finds refuge behind during the shoot-out with the Galactic Authority was actually constructed by the Art Department because there were no appropriately-sized rocks on location. Three demands the very best!
