* WhoWouldBeStupidEnough: Sador uses this trope to deride his NumberTwoForBrains when asking who'd come to aid the Akirans. "No-one would be that stupid, even you!"

* 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).

* {{Expy}}: George Peppard's portrayal of Space Cowboy is almost exactly the same as the way he'd play Hannibal Smith on The A-Team a few years later.

* RecycledInSpace: This film is clearly based on ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven''. Also Cowboy as a SpaceTrucker and SpaceWestern cowboy. And as stated above, Creator/RobertVaughn is playing essentially the same character that he did in ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' just RecycledInSpace!
