EASTER EGG: On the Leonov miniature: to the lower right of the "LEONOV" marking on the starboard side of the ship is a tiny decal reading "SDELANO V SShA", meaning "Made in USA". It is barely visible on the Blu-Ray in the shot where Brailovsky and Curnow exit the airlock.

The voice of the SAL 9000 computer was actually performed by Candice Bergen, though the role was credited to "Olga Mallsnerd," a pseudonym combining the surname of Bergen's spouse (director Louis Malle) and that of Mortimer Snerd, one of her father (ventriloquist Edgar Bergen)'s famous puppet characters.
