Rick Fortune (the 'Diceman') was a new character especially created for the comic and his adventures ran from the second issue until the fifth and final issue.
The first three issues of Starlord came with free gifts - issue one came with a Starlord Trooper badge (there were six badges to collect - one per issue), issue two came with a folded-card 'space calculator' (which displayed facts on the planets in our solar system) and issue three came with a Starblast game (a 20cm x 16cm card with a wipe clean surface - played a bit like Battleships)...
Despite initial strong sales, the comic failed to run strips consistently and creators were not paid on time leading to its cancellation and publisher Apocalypse being declared Bankrupt. Some of the characters found life at new publishers, such as Dark Horse and Atomeka and some even in 2000AD itself. Apocalypse did reprint most stories in the Apocalypse (1991) series.
