Reminded me of the original Star Trek series
There's a character called Krakos in Ulysses. On Star Trek there was a character called Krako (and he lived on a planet with a Greek name, Iotia).
The story with the Circe seemed like the kind of adventure Captain Kirk would get himself caught up in.
Trek had at least three episodes that related to Ancient Greeks. I'll bet at least some of the Trek writers saw this film.
