Hi, I'm new to this forum and I'm trying to get a feel for what the forum's overall view on science fiction is. Some of my friends have told me that I have a relatively strict view of what constitutes science fiction. If it's not based on real science, or if it contradicts known science, but uses science fiction as a backdrop then I usually call it Science Fantasy. For me, this includes Star Wars because of how easy it makes faster than light travel seem and because the force is never explained. It also includes Star Trek because it makes almost every species look human save for a few minor differences in facial features and usually nonhuman species have only one one or two cultures/ governments. Does anyone else on this website feel this way? Is this a minority view point? I've found it a struggle to find people who are interested in more accurate, detail-oriented science fiction such as this.
