* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Did Maximillian abandon Dr. Reinhardt at the end, or did he just not have the ability to send the elevator back up? Either is possible for such a cold and murderous machine.

* IdiotBall / SomethingWeForgot:
** Reinhardt would've avoided so much trouble if he had just remembered to keep [=B.O.B.=] out of reach from the Palomino crew instead of letting it become pals with [=V.I.N.CENT=] and telling it what actually happened to the crew of the ''Cygnus''...no one else on the ship could have told them anything, since they're all robots without speech capability.
** In the novelization, B.O.B. explains that Reinhardt and Maximillian missed reprogramming him to be obedient, as they did all the other robots on the ship, because he was deactivated [[spoiler: during the mutiny]], and he has survived with his personality intact since then by acting like he had been reprogrammed.
* PlayingGertrude: Maximillian Schell was 48-49 during filming. Reinhardt was probably supposed to be at least ten years older, given that he was not only missing in space for twenty years but was said to be the mission commander. Using the actor's age as a starting point, twenty years ago, he would have been a bit younger than Dan (who was probably only a Captain using the U.S. Army/Airforce ranking system, not Navy); closer to Charlie's age in fact. This is probably why the beard and gray were added to Schell's makeup.
* ShoutOut: [[spoiler: The journey through the black hole is mostly constructed out of a [[TheOner single long multiplane shot]] reminiscent of the ''Ave Maria'' segment of {{Film/Fantasia}}]].

** The static cartoon google eyes that were glued onto the robots, which was an 11th hour change when the original eyes for them (a type of pixelated screens that would allow them a variety of expressions) failed to work on the first day of shooting.
