* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: The bomb is described as having a mass equivalent to Manhattan Island, or (assuming 1 km depth and the density of granite) about 2.43×10¹⁵ kg. The Sun's mass is just under 2×10³⁰ kg, or a quadrillion times larger. Even if the sought after Q-ball were 10 billion times smaller in volume than the Sun (akin to comparing a human to a large amoeba) it would still have a radius of over 300 km. Additionally, the total amount of energy one could extract from such a bomb would be in the region of 2*10^29 joules, depending on which fuel source was used. The Sun emits about that amount of energy roughly every 10 minutes.

Added DiffLines:

* TheEnlightenment: 8 humans saving the life of the Sun (which is explicitly compared to God) with science, and overcoming [[spoiler: the raging fundamentalist Pinbacker, who is irradiated enough to look like death itself.]] Not going to get much more Enlightenment than that.

The Sun emits about 2000 times that much energy ''every second''.

* YouAreInCommandNow: Harvey is promoted to [[spoiler:Captain]] following his predecessor's demise. He's also now become the communications officer of a ship with a useless communications array, which makes him from that point on the most expendable person on board.

Directed by [[Creator/DannyBoyle Danny Boyle]] who would later direct ''SlumdogMillionaire'', and had earlier directed ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'' and ''Literature/{{Trainspotting}}'', the film was completely mishandled in the advertising: a final-act twist was treated as if it were the main plot. Thus when audiences showed up they were put off by the hour-long build-up to the plot they were actually expecting to see.
