Notes Edit

  • This story is of interest to scholars of Doctor Who, as Steven Moffat included one of its observations — that the first syllable of "Exterminate!" sounds like the word eggs — in TV: Asylum of the Daleks.
  • Ace wears a skin-tight combat outfit and handles weapons, implying a Virgin Era, if not specifically Spacefleet Era, Ace. Interweaving with the New Adventures places this story after Cat's Cradle: Witch Mark.
  • The title is a reference to the Franz Kafka story of the same name, which tells the tale of a man transforming into an insect and the horrified reactions of those he knows.
