In the original V mini-series, it is clearly stated that visitor ships can not travel faster than the speed of light (although they can closely approach it), meaning that voyages between their planet and Earth would take several years one way. However, in the TV series, there are numerous incidents of visitors who are summoned to Earth from the home planet, often to deal with problems or for special expertise, and who then arrive just a few weeks or even days later. This makes little sense given the original stated ability of how fast visitor ships can travel.
Real-life newscaster Howard K. Smith, who has a recurring cameo in this series, is sometimes given a guest star credit on episodes in which he does not appear.
