Star Trek Is Just Space Fantasy

Ok, this might not be entirely true, but it still made me laugh!

  1. The creator of this understands neither science fiction nor Star Trek. Star Wars is space fantasy because it doesn’t explore the consequences of technological innovation. Star Trek is about as sci-fi as it gets.

    • On the scale of “hard sci-fi vs. science-fantasy” Star Wars is obviously way further down the science-fantasy side, but Star Trek with Q, the prophecy from DS9 and some of the very different races/life forms they encounter is far from the hard sci-fi end.

      I wouldn’t say it’s “just space fantasy” as the title says, but it definitively has it’s fair share of fantasy.

    • This was nothing but a humorous comparison between Star Trek visuals and common fantasy elements. I don’t think the author actually means that.

      • What Dac X Lee said. It’s just a silly jab at the similarities.

        Also, everyone knows that Ferengi would be Kender…

  2. Regardless of that, there are too many supernatural aspects of Star Trek to ignore and simply dismiss it as “science fiction”. The franchise is science fantasy at best.
