The riot scenes were shot during one of the coldest days of 2003. The temperature was below -20 Celsius. Nearly 100 people had volunteered to as extras. Even though the shoot required them to stay out in the cold for the entire day most of them turned up for the shoot. See more »
In the beginning, when Dwarf looks at Pirk's magazine, the magazine title says "Tiede"; when it's on table, it's "Tiedä". (Tiede is an actual Finnish monthly science magazine, and "Tiedä" would be a spoof of it.) See more »
Keisari James B. Pirk:
Why's everybody talk back all the time? Try walking in my shoes! It's no cakewalk, managin' the whole world by myself. Gotta admit, sometimes I think I've gotten in too deep. This mess began 8 years ago. My ship blew up and I was stuck in the past.

The trailer already whetted my appetite. But the movie itself is outstanding. If you are a fan of Star Trek, Babylon 5, etc you have probably also thought of some scenes you would like to see. For me this movie comes very close. The CGI effects can only be described as awesome. Every scene breathes the love of the staff for details. Especially the battle scenes are outstanding and give every Star Wars movie a run for its money. The plot is also masterly constructed. The tension builds up in the first twenty minutes or so and reaches several peaks after that. The story has a great tongue-in-cheek attitude. The characters are only slightly exaggerated compared to their respective originals which keeps them from getting on your nerves too fast. Fortunately the actors avoid overacting - which impressed me as this is still a fan movie after all. The only drawback is that the audio is Finish with English sub-titles. But what the heck: Hearing the tone of Pirk's derogatory remarks is compensation enough.
