* SpacePeople: Galt says he doesn't have a homeworld -- he was born in space, which is appropriate for a [[SpaceIsCold cold-blooded killer]]. The only payment he wants is to live on a planet where no-one is going to shoot him InTheBack over his past deeds.

* SpacePirates: We're first introduced to Cowboy being attacked by jackers who are blasting his ship with laser fire to wear down the shields, whereupon they'll blast him and steal his cargo. Cowboy responds by [[FaceDeathWithDignity laconically calling for help]] and playing a CaptivityHarmonica.

* GhostPlanet: Gelt is hiding on one, as he's not safe anywhere else. The only thing he wants from Shad is a place where he can have human company that doesn't want to kill him.

After ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope'' became a surprise hit, [[FollowTheLeader studios rushed to cash in on]] the public's sudden hunger for "ScienceFiction" with a flood of bad SpaceOpera. Exploitation king Creator/RogerCorman had no intention of being left behind, but he showed more intelligence than most film executives by ripping off [[Film/SevenSamurai a good plot]] as well. When SFX companies presented outrageous quotes for their work, Corman [[Creator/IndustrialLightAndMagic took a leaf from]] Creator/GeorgeLucas' book and created his own special effects (under the charge of Creator/JamesCameron who got his "big break" with this film, along with producer Gale Anne Hurd, composer Music/JamesHorner and screenwriter -- later independent filmmaker -- Creator/JohnSayles). Corman being Corman, he made sure to get his money's worth by recycling the StockFootage in countless other low-budget sci-fi movies; Horner's score was also [[RecycledSoundtrack used in other Corman productions]] (a case of HilariousInHindsight, given the composer's own recycling tendencies).
