In the opening scene of the movie an American Apollo and Russian Soyuz craft link up. The distance shot is of the correct two craft but the docking footage is actually from an Apollo command module looking at an Apollo lunar module.
The subtitle of this film, (City of a Thousand Planets,) is an amalgam of the titles of the first two Valerian comics, "City of Shifting Waters," and "Empire of a Thousand Planets."
