  • Alvis has a dream during which she speaks in Greek. Her words are transliterated in the subtitles as "To keuma eu grastikes siest to escaposto krioso. To miasi site asoma ahora se agaimesusen eu aiene. Stai makarinai girera tessera emenes ihere astere." A full translation is not currently available, but certain phrases suggest that it corresponds to the Mysteria. ("keuma eu" = κύμα ευ = "fair waves"; "krioso" = χρυσός = "gold"; "emenes ihere astere" = έμενες ηχηρέ αστέρε = "used to live strong star").
  • There are several close-ups on the map of the Grand Stream, in which phrases such as νο εσχαπε ("no escape") can be made out.
