The plot of this episode was influenced by the classic 1960 Western "The Magnificent Seven" (hence the similarity of the title), which itself was an American interpretation of Akira Kurosawa's 1954 masterpiece "Seven Samurai." The same basic story was also used in two other science-fiction productions: "Message From Space", a 1978 Japanese "Star Wars" clone, and Roger Corman's 1980 sci-fi adventure, "Battle Beyond the Stars."
