  • "The PsychoCrystals" was collected in Dynabrite, Issue 11358, along with "A Bomb In Time".
  • Although eschewing technology, the Alpha 23-C natives had periscopes to observe surface activity.
  • At least three crystalline species were seen on the planet: The bipedal natives, dogs, and the dragon.
  • It was unclear how these lifeforms printed books without the use of technology, unless they were handwritten books
  • When Scott saw the crystal dragon, he remarked, “St. George never saw the likes of a dragon like that.” He was referring to the legend of “Saint George and the Dragon,” a saint who slayed a dragon and saved a princess.
