* {{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.

* ThePerilsOfBeingTheBest: Gelt has committed so many high profile killings and become so infamous that he's no longer welcome anywhere in the civilized galaxy. Shad finds him homeless, living in an abandoned arcade and eating rats.

* 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!

'''''Battle Beyond the Stars''''' (1980): [[BigBad Sador of the Malmori]] and his crew of {{mutants}} roam the galaxy in a [[StarshipLuxurious huge spaceship]] armed with a Stellar Convertor, the most powerful weapon [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale in the universe]]. When Sador claims the [[TechnicalPacifist peaceful farming planet]] of Akir as a colony, young Shad volunteers to take SapientShip Nell and seek out mercenaries who are willing to fight him. They find Gelt (a ProfessionalKiller who just wants to live on a planet where [[ContractOnTheHitman no-one's trying to kill him]]), SpaceTrucker Cowboy of [[HumansAreWarriors Earth]], Nanelia (a MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter), Saint-Exmin of the [[ProudWarriorRace Valkyrie]] (a [[ActionGirl warrior woman]] looking to [[BloodKnight prove herself in battle]]), Nestor (a HiveMind seeking new experiences) and [[TheReptilians Caymen]] of the Lambda Zone, who'd like to [[{{revenge}} settle accounts with Sador]] for [[TheLastOfHisKind destroying his species]]. Counting Shad that makes seven. [[TheMagnificentSevenSamurai Sound familiar?]]

* [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Race Girl]]: Saint-Exmin, although Shad doesn't take her seriously because she has a tiny ship, until she soundly beats them in a ship-to-ship fight. Even then, he doesn't accept that there is such a thing as a beautiful death in battle, as her race's motto proclaims, until he sees her die.
