    Seeing as 90% of the best video games I've ever played are formed on a science fictional basis, of course I enjoy it. Also, Star Trek TNG is probably the best drama ever crafted.

    Miiiiinor little difference there XD
    I believe 'dystopia' is a sub-genre of 'utopia', or at least that's what I've learned. It's only a matter of perspective btw, I would never consider a phalanstre an 'ideal society'.

    So why the name tinkerbell and the avatar? Those both look full of fantasy.

    Hey

    I now get a comment someone else made to me on here earlier in the week.

    The the avatar is a chracture of myself done for a leaving card for a job I had a few years ago...

    The name - longer story. I'm dyslexic, and as a small child I love to know what was in the fairy tale books and I used to get my brother to read them to me. Without the drive from fairy power my dyslexia would be a lot worst (I read a ferocious amount) so I have a soft spot for fairies....

    I used to work for an ENTJ who was very scientific, and we used to argue about science and that he couldn't actually prove that fairies didn't exisist (he ribs me about astrology)... I rib him about science being so limited.

    I now have a new improved argument, science can' measure thoughts..... does that mean they don't exsist
    (don't get side tracked - it is for him to argue - hes screwed... )

    Sci-fi yes, Star Wars and Star Trek are quite the staple, although they're soft. I prefer Isaac Asimov, Orson Scott Card, and Alastair Reynolds.
    Fantasy not as much. Anne Rice and Piers Anthony are all I can remember off the top of my head. Can't believe I almost forgot Lord of the Rings!

    Speculative fiction is great because it allows for greater creativity, and holds fewer of the assumptions that we hold in the real world. Sci-fi and fantasy have much more potential to thought-provoking on universal truths.

    That being said, it pisses me off when the authors break the suspension of disbelief. Then everything looks stupid. I also hate it when mainstream people think that taking a pile of crap and putting it "... in space!" makes it science fiction. If science fiction doesn't live up to the "science" part, then it loses some of its value. Star Trek, for example has quite a lot of technobabble, but it's quite consistent technobabble. I like some of the ideas they explore (in one Voyager episode, two people getting fused into one, where the new person's thoughts are a mixture of the two previous people). Some of it is stupid, though (like two people going so fast that they go into reverse evolution and become simpler mammals, Voyager again)

    There's this perception out there that fantasy is just fantasy, and you can do whatever you like when writing it. No, everything has to be internally consistent. I love how all the detail Anne Rice and J. R. Tolkien put into their books not only remain internally consistent, but also enhance the immersion into their fictional universes.

    Do I like sci-fi is a tough question to answer.

    It depends on how it is brought. If it is believable to some wordly extent. Or if something is different from common science, is it explained in a good way.

    Overall, has there been enough thought put into creating the sci-fi.

    Then yes, I enjoy sci-fi. But if anything feels fake or absurd in any way. It rapidly looses my interests.


    My favorite forms of sci-fi are the kinds that play at or around our current time. For example, Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis are amongst my favorite sci-fi series. I also enjoy some for their humor, such as Farscape (coincidentally also taking place in our current timeline. :P ). Sci-fi wise not really -that- great. But the humor and self mockery make up for that bigtime, especially later in the series.

    Star Trek and Star Wars I am not that big on.


    My most favorite genre is fantasy though.

    can't stand star trek and all the geeks who idolize the characters

    I like science non-fiction
