  • Darkstar Rising is a fine example of what Alien Force should be.

    • Humongousaur: (grabs the Highbreed Lord's arm) Hey ugly, why don't you pick someone your own size? (throws him) Highbreed Lord: (talking to the team) I wouldn't if I were you. (speaks in alien language and Magister Gilhil appears) Magister Gilhil: Didn't take you kids long to get yourselves into trouble again did it? Humongousaur: Us? We were just- Highbreed Lord: (interrupts) Attacking me for no reason!

    • Highbreed Lord: (breaks through garage wall) Human scum, I will cleanse the world of your filth. Kevin: Looks like I picked the wrong day to give up fighting monsters. (absorbs metal from his car) Gwen: It's a Highbreed. Ben says they're too strong for us to fight. Kevin: Well, Ben ain't here. (attacks the Highbreed Lord)

    • Kevin: And what makes you think I'm still helping you guys anyway? Gwen: (holds his hand) Because you've changed. Kevin: Maybe, but I'm still on parole. That Magister can put me back in that Null Void anytime he wants. (Gwen and Kevin are about to kiss but the Highbreed Lord breaks in)

    • Gwen: I brought you a present. (throws Kevin a wooden ball) Kevin: (catches it) What's this? Gwen: A wooden ball. Absorb it. (Kevin absorbs it) How about this one? (throws Kevin another ball and he absorbs it) It's a ball bearing. Made out of, uh I don't know, ball bearing stuff. Kevin: Stainless steel. Gwen: I brought you a whole bag of them. All made of different materials. That way when you fight, you can change to whatever you want. Kevin: Thank you, but it doesn't really work that way. I need a lot of whatever I'm copying. Gwen: Oh.

    • Highbreed Lord: (on the floor) What do you want from me? Darkstar: (looks down at him) I want to make a deal.

    Notes (15)

    • This episode reveals that Ben has regained at least partial control of the Omnitrix's master control, as he is now able to transition between different aliens without first reverting to his human form.

    • The Materials that Gwen gave Kevin include: Ball Bearing (made of stainless steel) and A Wooden Ball (made of wood obviously)

    • It turns out that Kevin still has a parent (or parents).

    • This marks the first time in the series that Vilgax was mentioned.

    • Magister is a rank in the Plumbers, Gilhil and Labrid (known as Magister in the two part pilot) are in that rank.

    Trivia (11)

    • We find out that Magister Prior Gilhil has over 300 planets under his watch.

    • We find out that the Plumbers are the only law enforcement organization recognized by all signatories of the Milky Way Treaty. We also find out that if you impersonate a Plumber that makes it a interstellar-class felony.

    • Listen Closely: The Highbreed commander's voice is higher than usual. Also, this same voice was used in the video game.

    • Why would Kevin absorb his car if he went with the stone?

    • Look Closely: When the Highbreed Lord threw Kevin onto his car, the car received no damage at all; even though Kevin was in his stone form.

    Allusions (4)

    • Darkstar's new look bear resemblances to Slade from the 'Teen titens' series. He also wears a mask to hide his face because he is perhaps ashamed of it- as does Slade.

    • Darkstar's Mask - Iron Man Darkstar's mask looks almost exactly like Iron Man's mask from Marvel. Their eyes and mouth are almost identical.

    • Darkstar's Powers - Raven's Powers: Darkstar's powers look very similar to Raven's dark aura from "Teen Titans."

    • Ben: Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges! Ben quotes a line from the film "The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre"; even imitating Humphrey Bogart's voice.
