The names of people who worked on the film appear several times. On the first issue of The Chronicle shown in the film that reports the docking of the Hindenburg III at the Empire State Building, multiple headlines contain references to Kerry Conran and brother Kevin Conran (headline "Conran Ministry Force Deal"), Darin Hollings ("Dr. Hollings Speaks"), Omar McClinton ("McClinton seeks license to halt sanctions"), Brian LeachZack Petroc ("Leach and Petroc Break Over Budget"), and Stephen Lawes ("Lawes Held Ready to Aid U.S. Peace Action"). In the issue of The Chronicle with the headline "Giant Machines Steal Refineries," the article is shown to be written by Marsha Oglesby, one of the film's executive producers. Although dim lighting makes it practically invisible in the film, there is a list next to the giant wall map in the Flying Legion base, which contains the last names of several crew members.

The film's title is written in the sky, in large, steel letters extruding from the clouds at an angle. The opening credits are shown against a backdrop of an extreme close-up of the letters, and when it comes time for the title to show, the camera zooms out. See more »
I read through some of the other comments on here... I can't imagine who went to this movie expecting it to be full of philosophy or deep thinking, it's just a fun thrill ride type of movie and it is one of the best of those types of films to appear in decades. I knew the film would be cool looking because I caught a few minutes of it at a drive-in, but when I watched the whole movie it really blew me away as a well-conceived well-executed whole. I liked the characters, I didn't think they were "realistic" but they were fun in the old-school movie kind of way. It reminded me somewhat of a Howard Hawks film, actually. I like the love triangle here and wish it had been developed more. The visuals are just amazing. This movie is in every way better than the new Star Wars movies.... it has the great futuristic dogfights that were so great in the first 3 SW movies but are missing in the new films, and its effects are better thought out and better done than "Attack of the Clones".
Everybody who likes science fiction or just who likes good old-fashioned movies should see this film. It is suitable for kids and for adults. Very good photography and direction, I think this one will be appreciated by film fans looking to the new fronteirs of filming also. This film gave me some hope, at long last, that Hollywood will not become a wasteland of effects without good story, so I am indeed surprised that many posters here consider it to be just that. To me, this film is a gem.
