The vacant seat on the Jedi Council was the one formerly held by Adi Gallia, who died in Season Five, killed by Savage Opress.

This episode marks the appearance of Oppo Rancisis on the Jedi Council, a serpentine Jedi Master first seen in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, but left off the Council in the series until now.


Mace advising Jar Jar not to touch anything aboard the shuttle echoes Qui-Gon’s same instructions to Binks when they entered Watto’s shop in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.


Although it is not explicitly said in dialogue, the cult leader of the Frangawl is High Seneschal Peteen, which echoes the role of Chattar Lal, Prime Minister of Pankot also being a Thuggee, in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.


The Bardottan species has been previously seen, in a way, in the form of Mars Guo, a Podracer who competed in the Boonta Eve race in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. That Guo does not identify as a Bardottan suggests the species is widespread and may call multiple worlds as home. This episode makes it clear that there are two general sizes of Bardottans, tall and lanky like Julia and Peteen, and short and stout like Joseph and Savatte.


The planet Bardotta is named after Brigitte Bardot.
