On 3 February, the following important behind-the-scenes events were known to have occurred:
- 1995 - Writer Robert deLaurentis submitted the second draft of his script for the 1996 TV movie, drawing on his 17 December submission entitled Dr. Who?. He replaced the Daleks with "Zenons", Borusa was renamed Pandak, and companion Sherman was replaced with an alien named Gog. Worse yet, Castellan Kelner became a half-Zenon who commits suicide. Finally, Fox got fed up and even suggested a return to John Leekley's 24 August script. On 5 May, Matthew Jacobs was chosen to replace deLaurentis as writer of the film.
