* 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.
