Trivia

Cover art

The game's cover artwork, by Jerry Bingham, is shared with the cover to the Buck Rogers XXVc role-playing game boxed set and the cover of Dragon Magazine issue 157 in May 1990, officially launching TSR's contentious Buck Rogers product line.

German version

As for many SSI RPGs in the early nineties, a completely German version of this game was manufactured. This version sold quite well in Germany (despite being more expensive than the English one).

Extras

Some production series of this game (most likely the first English one) included a Buck Rogers novel. Its story is the same as used in the game.
