Science Fiction

A genre of possibilities

sci fi
  • Science fiction
    • A genre of fiction dealing with imaginary but more of less plausible content such as future settings, futuristic science and technology, space travel, aliens, and paranormal abilities. Exploring the consequences of scientific innovations is one purpose of science fiction, making it a “literature of ideas”.
    • Science fiction is largely based on writing rationally about alternative possible worlds or futures. It is similar to, but differs from fantasy in that, within the context of the story, science fiction’s imaginary elements are largely possible within scientifically established laws of nature. Some elements of a story might still be purely imaginative.

  • Setting:
    • The settings for science fiction are often contrary to known reality, but most science fiction relies on a considerable degree of suspension of disbelief
  • Time setting in the future, alternative timelines
  • A spatial setting or scenes in outer space, other worlds, or subterranean earth.
  • Characters that include aliens, mutants, androids, or humanoid robots.
  • Technology that is futuristic (ray guns, teleportation machines, humanoid computers)
  • Scientific principles that are new or that contradict known laws of nature (time travel, wormholes, or faster-than-light travel)
  • New and different political or social systems (dystopia, post scarcity, post-apocalyptic situation where organized society has collapsed)
