“Walker Smith” was the birth-name of famous boxer Sugar Ray Robinson


IMDb gives this episode a 5.6/10 rating. “Infection” got a 6.3. gives “TKO” a more generous 6.7, but it’s still the lowest rated episode there. It’s all up from here folks!


Rabbi Koslov was portrayed by Theodore Bikel, who had a long career of great performances. We’ll see him again in  Babylon 5: In the Beginning in a different role


Bikel was the voice of Aragorn in the Rankin and Bass animated film Return of the King. Here is the grimly funky “Where There’s A Whip There’s A Way.”

And here’s Bikel as Aragorn in the scene where he faces down the Mouth of Sauron. This is what we had to work with in the 70s/80s kids. And don’t even get me started on Casey kasem as Merry.


We talked about One World Government and how we didn’t foresee Americans giving up their sovereignty back in Episode 11: Believers.
