Background information

While the episode "Night" was undergoing initial development, the name of this character was "Captain Galaxy". He was originally called that in the final draft script of "Night" (as of 29 May 1998), though his name was changed to "Captain Proton" by the time the eighth revision to that final draft teleplay was issued (on 2 July 1998).

The jetpack of the costume was sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. [1]


Captain Proton has been featured in at least one complete Captain Proton story that has been written in the real world – Captain Proton: Defender of the Earth, by Dean Wesley Smith. He presumed that, in the Star Trek universe, the holo-novel Captain Proton was adapted from a supposed 1930s pulp magazine, and set out to write and publish that story.
