PRODUCTION NOTES

  • “Dion Johnstone reprises his role as Chaka in this follow-up to Season Four’s ‘The First Ones.’ While Peter DeLuise did the scripting honors on this one, Martin Wood assumed the directing reins. This one is a bit of a blur but I remember being genuinely surprised by early discussions to offer the role of Burrock to Larry Drake. His performance as the mentally challenged Benny Stulwicz on L.A. Law had been so damn brilliant and convincing, I’d actually assumed they’d hired a intellectually disabled actor to play the part!” (Writer/producer Joseph Mallozzi, in a post at his blog)
