** It may have been a lucky coincidence, but... The starry background in the exterior shots contains many dim blue-green clouds. This may have been meant to represent distant stars, but it looks more like the ''Palomino'' and the ''Cygnus'' are in or near a large nebula. In fact, this is likely a far more accurate depiction of a nebula than in, say, ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan''. The brilliantly-colored glowing clouds you see in photographs are the result of timed exposures. If you look at a nebula live through a telescope, you can often see details, but it is usually colored a greenish gray... not too far from the depiction here.

* AwesomeMusic: Say what you like about the movie, but Music/JohnBarry's Bond-meets-Lovecraft score is phenomenal.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: This was the first Disney movie to bear a PG rating. This trope ultimately led to the creation of Creator/TouchstonePictures, to deal with more adult fare. Further, there was no PG-13 rating until 1984, meaning that PG included everything just short of being rated R (other films that were rated PG include Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom (yes with the hearts getting ripped out) and Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan (with the mind-controlling parasites that crawl in your ear and the murder victims hanging from the ceiling). The notion of a PG-rated Disney film in which characters are brutally KilledOffForReal and the last few minutes consist of an idealized depiction of Hell, was ''extremely'' controversial in 1979 and was a primary reason why the film underperformed: diehard sci-fi fans ignored it because, well, it was ''Disney'', and many parents kept their kids at home rather than take them to a PG-rated Disney film.
