martin, perhaps you might be of help on this topic... all I can do is offer my guesswork.

Unfortunately, Earthbound is one of the few missing scripts. I've only ever heard of one copy- on ebay some years ago - and it disappeared into someone's collection. If anyone here has it, please let me know!

It makes sense that Zantor goes to the Power Unit to become the hostage. But actually showing him doing it wouldn't add much to the plot.

The Metamorph
in the episode, the scene changes prior to Koenig helping Maya to her seat:-

Breakaway
we don't see Jackson and Ellis (suits numbers 9 & 0) climbing out of the moonbuggy.
even the scene of them driving within the waste area is unused continuation footage of the Nordstrom/Steiner sequence.

It seems the art was made for a magazine cover, perhaps even Charlton comics, but it was never used for anything as far as I know.

I know with art it's each to their own... but I do prefer a bit of colour in the space suit - otherwise, a nice painting, Ultra.

Wargames
A couple of seconds cut after the first hit on Main Mission straight after Koening shouts 'Back to your posts' - we don't see Koenig (seen at the rear of this picture) helping the staff up:-

I think Sandra is one of those 2 persons.

When the eagle explodes, just before the roof colapses,
keep your eyes on Tanya, she's trying to avoid the dust at all cost,
always funny

i've heard somewhere in a documentary (Zenia ?)
that they used up to 4 or 5 cameras for this 'one shot'.

The single shot was much longer than the one shown on screen,
just watch the actors positions between each camera angles,
you will see that they cut several 'precious' seconds everywhere,
maybe to make this scene more 'intense'.

If memory serves, during one of the extras on the Network set, Zienia says it is Barry Morse under the cover of the desks.

The episode footage cuts just as Sandra starts to duck below her console - these photos reveal a little more - the b/w photo shows two people, the colour one shows a red sleeve - in the episode we do see the red sleeve girl heading in that direction:-

Oh i can see Victor's head, just in front of Paul, 4 feet ahead.
halfway between the two Sorella lamps on the last color picture.

Yeah, I see Victor there, too. Might the red-sleeve with Sandra be Kate?

By the way, the orange-sleeved guy with his arms akimbo (hands on hips) in that last colour pic looks very much like a guy I used to know. Ther weird thing is, the guy I knew was an infant when the episode was filmed. Even though I know better, every time I see this episode, I think it's the same guy because of the facial similarity. Weird, huh?

The actor is Uffe Neumann, character name Nilsson.
Actually he's a model- I can't find any other acting credits but he was in 3 episodes.

Funny, martin, this last photo with the Nilsson character inspired me to email you at The Catacombs about minor background characters. (I literally just got done sending it before checking back here for updates.) While gathering info for that email, I found your ID of him for "End of Eternity," and asked you if he was the same as the guy in "War Games." Well, I can consider that one ID completed now! I'm too tired to figure out the third ep he appears in, but you've got my curiosity up!

I also discuss many other minor characters, and look forward to your feedback!

Nilsson's name comes from his spacesuit helmet, which is only readable in blu-ray (in the opening scenes of End of Eternity).
He's in a spacesuit in Last Enemy too (running into the travel tube)

Thanks for the notes on the minor characters - after the y1 screen captures are done I'll do some work on them.
