Brain Pod Homeworld
- In The Adventure Begins, Zurg asks a Brain Pod how long he's been in the organization, to which the brain pod replies by asking "In total or as a brain in a jar?", implying that they were originally a different species before his brain was taken out and put into a pod. However, in the episode Shiv Katall it is revealed that the brains are actually a species that resemble brains, complete with mouths and tendrils that serve as arms and legs, contradicting the original statement about the species.
