This is part B of this challenge, see the first part here. This time, please list your three favorite Science Fiction settings as seen on TV or on film. Rules are similar to the first part, but please limit yourself to those settings that were first seen in a visual medium. For instance, Star Wars is in, Dune the movie, not so much, in fact, no. And no fantasy. You have been warned.
At the end of this week, I’ll tally up the votes then we will have a poll (as soon as the poll is fixed) to see what is the SF Signal Reader’s Choice for coolest TV/Film setting. Then we’ll have a poll for coolest written setting, then the final smackdown between the two winners to decide what is the coolest SF setting overall. I can’t promise we’ll be speedy here, but I will promise it will happen, even if I have to kill John to do so…
- Star Wars – yeah, I like SW. At least I don’t receive credit card offers addressed to ‘Star Wars Enthusiast’…
- Babylon 5 – I’d love to work for IPX, as long as I don’t have to explore long dead Shadow worlds.
- Star Trek – just about any of the eras, but later is probably better. Sign me up for the exploration part.
Ok, so they’re conventional picks, I agree. But I still like them. Now show me all the cool settings I missed (or forgot)!
