  • "We are not thinking past season four which will end on a cliffhanger. We have a general idea of where we want this major arc to go and hopefully will have a chance to develop it with a fifth season pick-up." — Joseph Mallozzi in his personal blog, August 10, 2007.
  • "It really hit home this afternoon when I glanced up at the whiteboard and saw the big, empty space beneath the Season 5 heading and beside the numbers 1 through 20. Marty G. helpfully filled in areas with the following titles: Premiere, Mid-Season Two Parter, and Finale. Awesome! 4 down and 16 to go!" — Joseph Mallozzi in his personal blog, October 24, 2007.
  • "To those of you asking - yes, Jason [Momoa] did cut his hair. The dreads were becoming a bit of a pain and he asked us if he could go ahead and lose them. Paul [Mullie] and I wanted to accommodate him but were a little concerned given that the first episode of season 5 will pretty much pick up events as we leave them in the final episode of season 4, and we figured the fans might notice the not-so-subtle change in hairstyle. Well, after getting on the phone with Jason’s hair expert (no kidding), we arrived at a solution. Jason could lose the dreads provided he held on to them. A couple of weeks prior to the start of principal photography for season five, they would be reattached in a procedure that would take approximately four hours, and he would have them back for premiere. Thus, Jason is happy and continuity is maintained. As for the ultimate fate of those dreads - that, among many other things, is up for discussion this week." — Joseph Mallozzi in his personal blog, October 28, 2007.
  • "Oh, a little correction to something I stated in yesterday’s blog entry. The process of re-attaching Jason’s dreads will not take the laborious four hours I had assumed. It’ll actually take a little longer. Approximately two days. See, this is why I prefer to keep him hair short." — Joseph Mallozzi in his personal blog, October 29, 2007.
  • "We know where we’ll be going with the first two episodes and it looks like the idea Carl pitched out today will find the third slot. After that, it’s wide open although, there are a couple of ideas that look very promising." — Joseph Mallozzi in his personal blog, November 1, 2007.
  • "As you may or may not have guessed, the title of our premiere (which I cryptically referred to as S&R) is Search and Rescue. Who's searching and who's in need of rescue? Tune into the season 4 finale to find out." — Joseph Mallozzi in his personal blog, December 7, 2007.

  • This episode will be the show's 100th. When asked if it will be like the 100th episode of Stargate SG-1 "Wormhole X-Treme", which was not too serious, Joseph Mallozzi replied, "Since it will be the season-ender, it will not be comical." — Joseph Mallozzi in his personal blog, October 27, 2007.

  • Concerning Amanda Tapping and Jewel Staite: "If and when we do get the pick up, given everything we’ve seen so far, we would very much like to have both of them back." — Joseph Mallozzi in his personal blog, August 9, 2007.
