Did You Know?

Trojan was originally scripted under the working title Slow Rescue - until it was suggested that, as the series opener, suggesting "slowness" in the title wasn't the best idea!

A version of the "Xpress Lifts" muzak from all the way back in Stasis Leak is repurposed here as the hold music while Lister is on the phone. Meanwhile, the music that plays as Howard Rimmer dies is a new riff by Howard Goodall on the "Rimmer Munchkin" theme from Series VII.

Collisions with moose really have been one of the highest causes of traffic accidents in Sweden, going all the way back to the 1970s.
