Wonder Woman Spaced Out (1975–1979)

One of the convention goers is wearing the mask of the alien monster Sardor from season two's Mind Stealers from Outer Space part one and two.

Director Ivan Dixon and a small crew filmed background footage at the 1978 Galacticon in Los Angeles. There, he asked the 'Fans Choice' winners at the costume competition, J. Blake Mitchell and James Fergusun, to use their 'cat' and 'lizard' costumes in 'Spaced Out'. Mitchell and Fergusun were allowed to visit the set during filming, but not to wear the costumes because they were not members of the extras' union. However, their creations were introduced as 'Major Fergusun' and 'Captain Mitchell' on screen.

The first story where Diana Prince appears with her hair down.

Space Quest is a clear reference to Звёздный путь (1966). Space Quest is owned by Paragon Studios, a reference to Star Trek's owners Paramount Studios. The receptionist who checks Diana in says the convention is being used to promote the comeback of the series. The episode aired in January 1979, while Star Trek was about to make a comeback in December with Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979). Coincidentally, Rene Auberjonois would go onto to be a part of the Star Trek franchise having played an uncredited role in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991) before getting a staring role as Odo on Звездный путь: Дальний космос 9 (1993).

Space Quest was partly a parallel to Star Trek. Rene Auberjonois would later co-star on Star Trek Deep Space Nine, and a part in Star Trek VI The Undiscovered Country, subsequently appearing at real life Science Fiction conventions as a result. In addition, Steven Anderson would later make a guest appearance on Star Trek The Next Generation. Paragon Studios also appears to be a stand in for Paramount Studios which produces the Star Trek franchise.
