* CombatPragmatist: O'Niel takes out the two hitmen sent to kill him by putting on a spacesuit and going outside, taking them out by flushing them into space.

* MeaningfulName: Dr. Lazarus.

Inspired by her success, she rediscovers her self-respect and helps O'Niel defeat the assassins.

''Outland'' is a 1981 SpaceWestern film written and directed by Creator/PeterHyams, starring Creator/SeanConnery, Frances Sternhagen, Peter Boyle and James Sikking, and set in a mining colony on Io, one of UsefulNotes/TheMoonsOfJupiter.
