Main Characters in this Episode
- Goof (factual errors): When MacPherson obtains the tsuba for the Masamune, he clearly slides the tsuka (handle, plus braid, and pummel) off the katana and places the tsuba back on the sword, sliding the tsuka right back on and 'clicks' it. This would be impossible since there are 2 mekugi (pegs) that have to be hammered out of the handle to remove it and then hammered back in to keep the handle in place. MacPherson just slid the handle right back on, meaning it would just slide right off the tang of the blade when swinging it.
- Goof (factual errors): At 39m:39s when Artie lets go of the sword, it's quite visibly 'wobbling', yet considering it's age and the amount of times it's been folded, the last thing it would do is bend in any way.
- Goof (errors in geography): When Pete and Myka are being driven out of Washington DC, the SUV they are in stops at a light at Matheson Blvd E. This is at the corner of Orbiter Dr. and Matheson Blvd in Mississauga, Ontario.
- Goof (continuity error): The tsuba box jumps from the table to under Dickinson's arm as he talks with Pete and Myka about Artie.
- Pete's usage of the term "redshirts" (meaning expendables) is a reference to the original Star Trek: The Original Series series, in which minor characters who wore red uniform shirts and beamed down to a planet were generally guaranteed to be killed on their missions.
- The name of the "Kludger Electronics" company is a small joke. In the electronics and aerospace community a "kludge" or "kluge" is a quick and dirty solution to a problem, typically using parts that are cobbled together.
