[edit] Trivia

  • Almost all of the Cyborg's names are letters in the Greek alphabet: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Zeta, Theta, Kappa, Lambda, Mu, Nu, Omicron, Rho, Sigma, Upsilon, Phi, Chi and Omega. Naming robots and cyborgs with greek letters is pretty common in science fiction.
  • The name "Fender" may be a reference to robot characters from Futurama: "Bender" the robot, a portmanteau of the names "Bender" and "Flexo" or the stereo robot named Fender.
  • The name "Fender" could also be a reference to the character Fender from the Blue Sky Studios/Twentieth Century FOX film, Robot.
  • The name "A.N.D.Y." may be a reference to the character "Deputy Andy", the android law enforcer on Eureka
  • The name "A.N.D.Y." may be a reference to the toy spaceman "Buzz Lightyear" from "Toy Story" where he has ANDY written on his foot
  • The name "A.N.D.Y." may be a reference to the Stephen King novel series "The Dark Tower" where a robot named Andy plays a role in the fifth book
  • The name "A.N.D.Y." may be a reference to the similarly named explosive device from the popular web series, Red vs. Blue.
  • The name "T-3E0" may be a reference to "C-3P0" from Star Wars
  • The name "Niner-7" means 9-7 in the NATO Phonetic Alphabet.
  • The name "Niner-7" may be a reference to "Seven of Nine" from "Star Trek: Voyager"
  • One of the cyborg's quotes may hint him hitting on the Steampunker.
