* {{Slap Slap Kiss}} Jason and Princess Karina. Not only do they spend much of the movie insulting one another, but they're also locked in a battle of wits, trying to threaten, capture, enslave, or embarrass one another.

* XMeetsY: ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' (if, instead of a {{Western}} motif, they went with pirates) meets ''Series/RedDwarf''. Note: this movie came out before either series...

** The Pirate's Den, a bar filled with space thugs and aliens, is a huge nod to the Mos Eisley Cantina scene in ''Star Wars''. With that in mind, Maida's duel with the bounty hunter who she cooly decapitates is probably a nod to Han Solo killing Greedo.

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: The film's main premise was severely undermined by the realization that water is one of the most common substances in the entire universe, being found even on Mercury.

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: The film's main premise was severely undermined by the realization that water is one of the most common substances in the entire universe, being found even on Mercury. (Not to mention the room that appears to be sort of projection-slash-makeout room. The scene shows the characters getting drenched by an artificial rainstorm. To be fair, the obvious posing to make the characters look like a cheesy romance novel cover probably was the point of the scene.)
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Even given the premise of water being rare, it's still the classic of ill-researched science fiction films -- it would be difficult indeed to actually monopolize all the water in the galaxy, as the expository crawl claims the Templars have done.



* YouFailPhysicsForever: The classic of ill-researched SF films--it would be difficult indeed to actually monopolize all the water in the galaxy, as the expository crawl claims the Templars have done.
** Taken to new levels when it's shown that one of the pirate hideouts orbits a ringed gas giant (a stock NASA animation of Saturn). You want ice? Go outside and grab a chunk! In fact, water is one of the most common substances ''in the universe''. There's even ice on ''Mercury''.

*** And perhaps a little of "You know what really turns me on? Burning ''lots of money''."

* {{Action Girl}}: Maida, the only female pirate in Jason's crew. Though she isn't involved in the fight of the climax (as she's too busy piloting the ship), she uses her laser gun as much as any of the guys throughout the movie, and has a memorable sword duel in the middle of the film, where she decapitates her attacker!
