- Like the Voyager-X Antenna and the ADS Sensor Wings in Mission 20, the Pod is docked in reverse.
- The pod can be placed on Lunar Module Descent for use as an alternative design lander for planet exploration.
- The pod looks very similar to the pod in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
- The Pod can reach orbit completely on its own, often still having approximately half of its engine fuel in reserve.
- The Pod can take photographs, but cannot do so while ascending through the atmosphere.
