** Although, in a bit of FridgeLogic, this could be seen as sign of his mental deterioration due to isolation and guilt.

* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: A rescue mission is launched from Earth, on the grounds that they couldn't leave Freeman stranded out there. Ironically Freeman doesn't want to be rescued.

* FutureFoodIsArtificial: And unfortunately, Freeman seems to be the only one who is being bothered by that.

* SanitySlippage: Freeman gets more crazy as the film goes on. Although Bruce Dern's acting makes you wonder if Freeman was even entirely sane in the first place.

* PropRecycling: The ''Valley Forge'' model was re-used on the original ''Series/BattlestarGalactica1978'' series (which had Douglas Trumbull as special effects director) as an "Agro-Ship" and ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'' included two ships who took strong design aspects from the ''Valley Forge'' (the "Colonial Movers" ship and the "Cloud Nine" hotel ship (which resembles one of the domes)) as a ShoutOut.



* TechnologyMarchesOn: Minor example: Freeman's reprogramming of the three repair drones so they can assist him with his leg's surgery required him to manually work on some circuitboards to hard-wire new instructions (a remake would have him, at most, working away on new computer code to download into them).



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In the original version of the story, Freeman was an old man who rebelled not to save the forests but because he didn't want to be sent back to Earth. Also, he attempts to make FirstContact with aliens.
