* SpoilerCover: It had a strange twist on this: one particular puzzle, in the Music Room, can be easily solved by looking at the back of the game box, where the screenshot of that room shows the puzzle completed. However, this isn't a spoiler... it's the correct, and ''only'', way to complete the puzzle.

* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler:Scraliontis]] falls to his death when he makes the mistake on leaning on a railing when attacked by the parrot, as they were poorly made due to cutting corners in the starship's development to "finish" it.

There is still a functional website that can be found [[http://www.starshiptitanic.com/ here]]. There is also a novelization of the game by [[Creator/MontyPython Pythonite]] TerryJones, who claims to only having agreed to Adams' proposal to write said book if he could write it in the nude. Which he supposedly did.
