* NoSuchThingAsAlienPopCulture: The Thermians obviously don't have a pop-culture of their own, otherwise they would have seen through the sham of the Galaxy Quest TV series not being real.

** Sarris gets one when he finally gets to see the "historical documents." Given the makeup, the actor's amazing at it, emoting from curiosity, to disbelief, to hilarious shock.

** Sarris gets one when he finally gets to see the "historical documents." Given the makeup, the actor's amazing at it, emoting from curiosity, to disbelief, to hilarious shock. The exultant sentence that follows just sells the whole thing:
-->'''Sarris:''' You have all done far greater damage than I ever could have. Bravo...bravo!

* KnightOfCerebus: Sarris is an extremely disturbing villain for a PG-rated movie. A genocidal sadistic torturer who not only [[spoiler:guns down most of the main characters]] but [[OffWithHisHead beheads]] his second-in-command, and, to top it all off, he has a horror-worthy design.

And, because he's a real alien military leader, he's significantly more GenreSavvy than the average villain in a movie of this type. It takes [[spoiler: a maneuver no one in their right mind would do AND the activation of the Omega-13 AND some deft shooting skills from Jason/Taggart to finally take him down.]]

** This may actually be a nod to the fact that the Chinese-surnamed Dr. Soong was played by the very-definitely-not Asian Brent Spiner.
