Battle Beyond The Stars (1980) In yet another film patterned on _The Seven Samurai_, a band of diverse heroes in outer space are assembled to defend a planet of peaceful colonists from an armada of aggressors.

  • Rebels. Outlaws. Mercenaries. Seven magnificent warriors join to fight the... Battle Beyond The Stars.
Movie Quote(s):
  • [to Nestor] Cowboy: I'm from Earth. Ever hear of it?
  • [to Gelt] Cowboy: I'm from Earth. Know where that is?
  • Cowboy: [upon seeing Gelt] Well, Shad, who's this? Shad: Do you want your name used? Gelt: My name is Gelt. Cowboy: Howdy, Gelt. I'm from Earth. Know where that is? Gelt: I was born in space. Cowboy: Okay, well, just know that I've always got your back. Gelt: Nobody goes behind me! Cowboy: Oh, you keep a tail light on, huh?
  • Cowboy: [after seeing Gelt blast a ship] Ha, ha! I love watching a pro work!
  • Nell: 30 seconds and counting, Zed. 29, 28, 27, 24, 15, 22... did I... did I say 15?
Movie Trivia:
  • Robert Vaughn plays essentially the same character he played in The Magnificent Seven (1960).
  • The main character, Shad, hails from the planet Akir. The natives of Akir are known as the Akira. This is no doubt a tribute to legendary director Akira Kurosawa (whose film Shichinin no samurai (1954) served as the inspiration for this film).
  • Gelt is modeled closely after the character Lee from The Magnificent Seven (1960) (both of whom were played by Robert Vaughn) and some of Gelt's dialogue is lifted almost verbatim from "The Magnificent Seven".
  • Most of the model shots were reused Space Raiders (1983).
  • Screenwriter John Sayles had originally envisioned the character of Cayman as a brooding dark humanoid, not the lizard alien seen in the final product.
