* AllForNothing: Yes, the planets the crew destroy are unstable and could eventually threaten life in that system, but only on a cosmic time scale. It will take thousands of years for the orbits of said planets to destabilize enough to be a threat, which means they aren't really a problem that needs to be dealt with any time this millennium and the Dark Star's mission is completely pointless.

* ShoutOut:
** The ending was inspired by the ending of Creator/RayBradbury's short story ''Kaleidoscope''.
** Guess where indie band Pinback got their name from?
** The character Pinbacker from Danny Boyle's film ''{{Film/Sunshine}}'' is (somewhat) named after Pinback, [[WordOfGod as confirmed by Boyle himself]].
** The Marvel Comics storyline ComicBook/OperationGalacticStorm begins with aliens attacking Rick Jones... in Benson, Arizona.

The film is about the small crew of the titular scout ship, whose job is to destroy unstable planets which might threaten future colonization.
