I find it hard to believe that the Final Fantasy XI Auction House forums have produced a far superior discussion/debate on this topic. I am disappointed, Star Trek. /wrists

For serious though, guys... I wanted to see this from the anti-Star Wars fan perspective! I don't care what you have to say about it, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject! :p

I've always called it 'science fantasy'; meaning a fantasy story/adventure in what would be considered a sci-fi setting.

i have always taken science fiction to be the all encompassing term

space opera is a bit more refined to certain shows within science fiction.

ie every space opera show is science fiction, not every science fiction show is a space opera.

Change of topic:
Is the OP's username science fiction, fantasy, or space opera? :p

Again your logic defies the term logic. Star trek fan =/= anti-Star Wars fan. Some like both while others like one or the other. And yes, 10Forward =/= serious discussions. Be happy you got a few serious responses.

Star Wars is Fantasy with Scifi elements. Space Opera isn't even a darned category in my mind. I would say that Star Wars is closer to Lord of the Rings than Star Trek in many ways.

George Lucas himself classifies Star Wars as a Space Opera.

Space Fantasy, Sci-Fi, whatever you wanna call it, hell even Space Western...It has elements of all those things...
