* ActorAllusion / ActorSharedBackground: Alexander Dane's [[IAmNotSpock resentment]] of being {{Typecast}} following his famous television role reflects on his actor Rickman similarly trying to avoid typecasting as a villain following his BreakoutRole as Hans Gruber in ''Film/DieHard''. Also, both Dane and Rickman came from Shakespearian acting backgrounds.

* NamesTheSame: A very different Jason Nesmith is a singer-songwriter, and son of TheMonkees' Creator/MichaelNesmith.
* PlayingAgainstType: Sigourney Weaver stated that her role was a parody of her iconic role as [[Film/{{Alien}} Ripley]]. Gwen was the opposite of the progressive sci-fi heroine, being a "dumb blonde".
** Also Alan Rickman, who normally plays dark, emotionless characters and often villains, playing a sarcastic, dissatisfied actor in a comedy.

*** MarsNeedsWomen: When Jason Nesmith and Gwen DeMarco are attempting to shut down the reactor, they are held up by two of Sarris' men. One of them is strangely attracted to Gwen, which disgusts the other one, who claims that he'd sooner mate with an animal. ("Yes... I know.") Gwen is disgusted by the first one's attraction and pissed off at the second one's insult, so she makes the ship's computer squash them underneath a blast door.

* EnforcedMethodActing: When the crew first arrives on the ship and Guy screams in terror, Sigourney Weaver nearly jumps out of her skin in shock. Apparently the director (purposely) didn't tell her that that was about to happen.
