      The scene where Vilgax is trying to gain the Omnitrix is very similar to the opening sequence from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. There is a larger ship chasing a smaller ship, the fact that the smaller ship contains something that the villain desperately wants, the fact that the object is jettisoned via an escape pod to the nearest planet before the villain could obtain it, the fact that the object falls into the possession of an ordinary person, and the fact that the villain sends a task force to retrieve it, are all references to the opening sequence.
