Riding the bomb to it's target references Slim Pickens' famous Dr Strangelove scene.
Both the scene where Mace, Capa and Harvey jet from airlock to airlock is almost identical to the scene in 2001 where Dave does the same thing, and the part where Icarus 2s voice starts to deepen and slow when the cores are pulled out is very reminiscent of HAL singing "A Bicycle Made for Two" as Dave turns him off.
A spaceship carrying Earth flora and ecosystems.
Character name (Pinback/Pinbacker). Also set on a spaceship carrying out a bomb mission.
In the scene where the crew are eating, the way they are sitting and conversing around the table (and the way the scene is shot) is almost identical to the infamous dinner scene in Alien.
The transformation of the Captain of the Icarus I (Pinbacker) bears a huge resemblance to the transformation of Dr. William Weir. The scene with Pinbacker in the observation room on the Icarus II is almost identical to one scene with Dr. Weir on the bridge on the Event Horizon.
