In the early years of the series we saw Angela, Lance, Melissa and Chao-Li in the presence of the Peregrine falcon Apollo. He was their pet after all. Lance had the glove on with Apollo on it, as if they were alluding to Falconry but this wasn't on screen. Would Falconry have been an interesting option, for TPTB? Angela and Chao-Li are discussing their pet, the Peregrine falcon Apollo, (a scene from season 2, 1982 - '83): Angela: "Apollo looks so harmless, in captivity." Chao-Li: "Not to me!" Angela: "Ha! You're right. If we set him free he'll resort to his killer instincts." Chao-Li: "I'd rather cook him first!" Angela: "Oh now......Chao-Li!"
