PRODUCTION NOTES

  • The early working title for this two-part episode was “Rise of the Googlions,” invented by Atlantis writer Carl Binder and meaning nothing in particular.
  • “Congratulations to Alan McCullough who handed in his first draft of ‘Kindred II.’ There won’t be a dry eye in the house when this one airs.” (Executive producer Joseph Mallozzi, in a post at his blog)
  • “I can’t tell you much about [the episodes] except to say that I do come back. It is a great reveal and its clever with the way they have done it. It does have something to do with previous episodes of Atlantis and there is a connection there. ‘The Kindred, Part 2’ is a heavy episode for Carson and I think the fans are going to love it, especially the ‘Save Carson Beckett’ fans who spent so much time to get the character back. He is a character that wears his heart on his sleeve and I think a lot of fans can relate to the guy and it is a nice tip of the hat to the fans.” (Actor Paul McGillion, in an interview with TrekMovie.com)
