What is your favourite Space based Sci-Fi universe?

14 October 2014 - 12:31 PM

For the space and sci-fi fans here, just as the poll asks, what is your favourite sci-fi universe? And what episode stands out for you as your favorite?

I'm including all extended universe materials for each series, such as novels, comics, cartoons, video games, even toys. Which one truly captured your imagination and made itself dear to you?

Personally, I need to go with Star Trek. While I will admit that my 3 favourite series of all time were Firefly, BSG (the Olmos remake, not the original), and Deep Space 9, I have to choose Star Trek as my overall favourite. As a very young child, repeats of TOS caught my eye and my imagination, followed by TNG which blew me away as 7-8 year old child. And I loved DS9 and Enterprise, while I just liked Voyager, I thought it was the weak link. All of those series have fantastic novels and comics, way too many toys and collectibles. I know its a sanitary look at the future of space travel, everything perfect, not a hair out of place, but something about the show has just always drawn me to it. The political aspect, the idea that Starfleet are supposed to be actual explorers, not glorified warships (while yes, I do know EVERY Starfleet vessel is supposed to be a Ship of the Line) looking for a fight, but explorers looking to forge new relationships with other space faring series, while having very strict guidelines on not polluting other non space faring cultures.

It doesn't have the realistic desperation of BSG, or the gritty nature and realistic problems of Firefly, but it has hope for the future of our species, and theres is something comforting about that.

Of course none of them are any kind of reality, but that is not why we watch these shows.

As for my favourite  ST episode are "In a Mirror, Darkly" (Enterprise) two parter, and DS9's 'In the Pale Moonlight', which saw Sisko make some extremely hard decisions, doing things in a way we've never seen a star fleet captain operate before, realizing that the rules just might have to be set aside to effectively fight the Dominion, leading into the best two seasons of Star Trek EVER! (Minus the loss of Jadzia, even though Ezri was still a great character).

So, lets hear it?

Happened earlier while I was playing Destiny. Just shut off and would not restart. Called Sony, shipping it back to them tomorow.

Better now than late November with no warranty I guess.

Anyone who does not have a PS+ account and would like a 30 day trial

I have a 30 day PS+ trial code from Destiny, and I don't need it as I subscribe anually (and if you already had PS+, the code doesn't work anyway). So if anyone here would like to try out PS+ for the first time, just reply to this thread. First user who wants it, gets it.

So, I bought Last of Us today, and the walmart guy passed me a promo code for a free di...

Anyone else have this happen?

If its truly a seperate digital game code and not dlc or some exclusive shit, i'll be more than happy to pass it on to a d1p'er. It specifically says it is a digital copy though, and was handed to me by the teller, it wasn't in the game case.

It mentions its a Canadian offer on the card, so any canucks here get this deal?
