    If they were created via some type of virus (especially man-made) I'd call them sci-fi. If created through sorcery or some type of curse, then they're just plain fiction.

    If you want a great sci-fi series, The Expanse is awesome. They actually pay attention to what would really happen and what would need to happen during space fight, etc.

    I like the Expanse a lot, but had no interest in watching season 5. Season 4 wrapped up my favorite storyline.

    Sounds like you don't have much of an imagination, or if you do, don't care to use it. Nothing wrong with that.

    Even if it's not necessary. The human race is hellbent on creating a hoverboard just because Back to the Future II showcased one. haha

    So, then you're saying that you don't watch television at all, because most of it is all make believe. Also, who is to say there isn't a USS Enterprise flying around in deep space somewhere? It's just as possible as it is impossible.

    Aren't you supposed to "imagine" without staring at docking stations, lasers, hairy space animals, etc??? :thumbup:

    Interesting concept. I've known many people in life that loved reading but refused to read anything that wasn't a textbook, operation Manuel, or first hand account history. We've had many debates as to whether Fiction could actually be considered a learning tool or escapist.

    Personally I love the Fantasy genre (Lord of the rings, Game of thrones,etc) but have never been a huge Sci-Fi fan. The only one that ever caught my attention was Dune and that's because it asks a very, very important question.

    I also love that it's getting crap for being a "white savior" story.

    Spoiler: not for the movie but the series.





    Their "white savior" has just doomed them to 3,500 years of slavery. That's almost double the time since the birth of Christ.

    Sci-fi movies are complete figments of the writer's imagination. You reject them because they aren't based in reality.

    I guess Frankenstein was the first sci fi book, hard to believe a young girl Mary Shelly wrote that masterpiece.

    Bummer the movie didn't really follow the book, that should be illegal;

    I love Scifi, but man is there a lot of bad scifi out there. For some odd reason, they always want to make it a drama. C'moooooooooon. I want to see lasers and critters and aliens and weird ideas and such.

    I enjoy sci-fi but only if it is more realistic sci-fi. I don't dress up to camp out to see new movies though. I have seen most of the Star Wars movies but I am not a great fan of Star Wars. The first movie was unique in some ways but that wore off quickly. To me Star Wars was a kiddie movie. I liked Space Balls better.

    When I say realistic, I understand that very little sci-fi is actually realistic. Most of it takes liberties with the realities of physics, that includes Star Trek. For me it is about the possibilities of the future more than anything else.

    We each have our own likes and dislikes. I hate horror movies, movies about ghosts and that crap, haunted houses or possessed houes, cars, people, etc. Had enough of that.

    @Mannix I thought I might be the only one who hasn't watched Star Wars. I will be 58 in March. I am not a fan of Sci-Fi. I did like reading the classics like Invisible Man, 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, etc.

    I never got into Star Trek but remember it on tv when I was a kid. I am thinking about watching a few episodes now to see if I might like it now.

    I was bored out of my mind watching that computer Hal and Space Odyssey 2000, or whatever it was called.

    I tried to read Tolkien books but soon quit out of boredom. Tolkien bores me to death. Those fantasy movies and books just don't do anything for me.

    I do like the Batman series from the 1960s though. Might be because of the costumes the young women wear and how hot they look.

    Honestly, if you're going to venture into Star Trek for the first time now, the original series (TOS) will probably be too corny, compared to modern special effects, but if the fact that those were cutting edge effects at the time is something you can be okay with, then it would be best to start with TOS. Otherwise, you might enjoy The Next Generation more, but there will be some parts you may not get, because they do reference the original crew on occasion.

    I really enjoy the cinematic style of the 60s and 70s. I like it better than the cutting edge stuff today.

    Okay then, give TOS a shot. There are some very funny moments, often in the final scenes on the bridge. The stories were very topical much of the time, and always original. Star Trek really was groundbreaking, such as one episode featuring the first on screen kiss between a black woman and a white man.
