Characters appearing in this episode
Beck (aka the Renegade)
(mentioned only, deceased)
In this episode, blackouts occur in Argon City due to
General Tessler's use of the Drill to drill raw energy from
underneath the city. This seems to imply that Argon City is
powered by this underground energy. Is this the case for all
cities in the system?
This episode introduces Bartik and Hopper, who join Paige's
task force to stop the Renegade. They appear in several
later episodes of
Tron: Uprising and in
Prisoners" and at the attack on the 0001001 Club in
Legacy. Bartik is likely named
for computer programmer Jean Bartik (1924-2011), one of the
original programmers of the ENIAC computer for the U.S. Army
in the 1940s. Hopper is likely named for Rear Admiral Grace
Hopper (1906-1992) involved with the development of the
UNIVAC computer and the COBOL programming language.
At 21:08 in the episode, a political slogan, "Perfection is
Freedom" is displayed at General Tessler's rally.
he's just trying to make things better.wav
