Behind the scenes

  • This episode was released on DVD in 2004 as part of the Treasure of the Hidden Planet feature film. It can be found on side 2 of the disc.
  • The Star Wars series' trademark line of "I have a bad feeling about this" is spoken by C-3PO in this episode.
  • This episode was adapted into the children's storybook entitled Escape from the Monster Ship: A Droid Adventure.
  • The Mupple species that appears in this episode appears to resemble the Tribble species from the Star Trek original series episode "The Trouble with Tribbles". Additionally, the scene in which the Mupples appear seems to be an homage to the final scene of that episode.
  • When the pirates prepare to re-program C-3PO, they ask him if he has any preference as to his new name. C-3PO replies "Well, I've always been partial to Anthon—oh dear, what I am saying?" This is a reference to Anthony Daniels, the actor who voices C-3PO in the series, and plays him in the films.
