Cleopatra 2525 Theme Song
Remix of Zager and Evans' 1969 hit, "In the Year 2525" (altered lyrics)
In the year 2525
There are women with the will to survive
Fighting for a brand new day
Nothing's gonna get in their way.
In the year 2525
Three women keep hope alive
Joining forces to reclaim the Earth
Looking ahead to humankind's rebirth.
Cleopatra 2525 Trivia
The robots were creatures known as the Bailies.
Gina Torres who played Hel Carter on Cleopatra 2525 also appeared on "Xena Warrior Princess" as the real-life historical character "Cleopatra" in the third season episode titled, "The King of Assassins".
In another connection with "Xena", Lucy Lawless provided the voice in the pilot episode but couldn't continue in the series due to another commitment. Elizabeth Hawthorne took over the role. The pilot episode did eventually air as the fifth episode titled, "Home" but Lucy's voice was recorded over by Elizabeth in order to keep it consistent.
Cleopatra 2525 was lengthened from 30 minutes per episode in the first season to 60 minutes in the second in order to fill the time slot left vacant when "Jack of All Trades" was not renewed for a second season.
