*CompleteMonster: From the {{novelization}} by Steve Perry & Dal Perry:
**[[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen]] [[AllThereInTheManual Susquehana]] is the [[BigBad absolute monarch]] of the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Drej]] and a genocidal nightmare of an alien. Leading the Drej in genocidal campaigns against entire planets, Susquehana's ultimate goal is to spread the light of the Drej all across the galaxy and exterminate all non-Drej life throughout. Learning that the technology of the Titan still exists even after Earth's destruction, Susquehana sends waves of Drej to find and eradicate the technology whilst destroying all those who seek it, eventually making it a point to spitefully [[KillAllHumans obliterate every surviving human colony]] herself and drive out all those remaining into the deep edge of space to perish. Susquehana also slaughters several of her own kind, some of them upstart assassins--but others killed purely due to Susquehana's own paranoid fits. An AbsoluteXenophobe obsessed with establishing her cruel legacy among her species and sinking to depths unreached even by the previous Queens of the Drej, Susquehana perfectly embodies the reasons why the Drej are feared and reviled by every denizen of the galaxy.
**[[SmugSnake Preed]], a slimy Akrennian [[TokenEvilTeammate barely tolerated]] even by the others onboard the Valkyrie, makes a name for himself as a backstabbing snake as his [[TheMole true colors]] unfold throughout the novel. Contacted by Susquehana with the promise of a monetary reward for finding the Titan, Preed and his compatriot Joseph Korso betray the other members of the Valkyrie to the Drej. Preed quickly establishes himself as the viler of the two between him and Korso, nearly shooting his way through an entire crowd of innocent colonists to get to Cale and Akima and displaying open, sadistic relish at the prospect of doing so. Once at the Titan itself, Preed turns his gun against Korso and reveals his intention to simply murder all of his former allies and sell out the Titan to the Drej, dooming any chance humanity has to repopulate--and then kicking back and watching as the Drej massacre everything in their path, comfortable with the death of almost all sapient life in the galaxy so long as he gets to stay alive.

As if that wasn't enough, he leaves Stith and Gune with [[spoiler:a bomb]] which nearly kills Gune. It's ultimately satisfying to see the treacherous creep get his in the end.

** This is arguably what happens when you get the [[Creator/DonBluth director]] of ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'' to direct a script by the [[Creator/JossWhedon the writer]] of "Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer".

* SpecialEffectsFailure: [[WordOfGod Producer/Director Gary Goldman]] and Creator/DonBluth openly complained about the time-and-budget crunch imposed by Fox at points in the DVD commentary, most notably involving a [[ConspicuousCG CG cliff]] shown near the end of the film that was done in literally the last two weeks of production.
* UncertainAudience: One of the main reasons people didn't see the film was because the ''film itself'' wasn't sure who the target demo was- kids, teens or adults. Even the ''VHS'' reflected this uncertainty- on it you had a trailer for the first ''Film/XMen1'' movie, followed by a promo for ''Anime/{{Digimon}}'' (remember- Creator/FoxKids was still around at this point).
* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: In addition to the [[ConspicuousCGI still-primitive CGI]], the soundtrack is almost nothing but TurnOfTheMillennium-era rock music.
* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Sure there is plenty of ConspicuousCG. But there's no denying the overflow of pure epic that is [[spoiler: the Titan destroying the Drej and forming a new planet.]] Or the destruction of Earth in the beginning.

** The Drej themselves are pretty scary, not helped by the fact that their mothership resembles a stylized skull.
