Soldier

Trivia: When Sargent Todd's combat and military record appears on screen, just before the title "between wars" is shown, you can see his different decorations. They refer to Kurt Russell's acting roles: "Plissken patch" (from "Escape from New York/LA"), "McReady" ("The Thing"), "Cash Medal of Bravery" from "Tango and Cash", and "O'Neil Ring Award" from "Stargate" where he played Jack O'Neil.

Trivia: Todd's Soldier ID unit is Todd 3465. The movie's director, Paul W. S. Anderson, was born 3/4/65.

Trivia: Kurt Russell only has 104 words of dialogue in the entire film.

Trivia: When the veterans are shown leaving the ship to go and set up an outpost on Arcadia, in the foreground you can see a nameplate on some debris. It says "Lewis", from the Lewis and Clark ship in Event Horizon, another Paul WS Anderson movie.

Continuity mistake: During the final fight between Cain and Todd, Todd breaks Cain's arm at the elbow and wrist. In the next shot Cain is staggering backwards as Todd winds up for another blow. You can clearly see that Cain's arm is fine and resting comfortably at his side. (01:24:13)

Colonel Mekum: A growl? He heard a growl?
Rubrick: Well, he didn't say the word "growl." He said "a throat noise." But I asked him to imitate it and it sounded like... a growl to me.
