    Politics Are there any "conservative" sci-fi shows?

    The thread for The Orville got a little sidetracked about it being "politically correct" or not but that notion has been stuck in my mind now thinking about the topic in general. Can anybody think of a sci-fi show after Star Wars, or the late 70's in general, that would be considered to be...

    Almost every idiot in the world knows that for instance the people on these pictures keep their mouth in an askew position because of me: Or that such words were not in the old USA anthem: I also suppose that Donald Trump is not a real president of the USA. What is the point in the...

    Any books or shows that deal with the breakup of the Federation in Star Trek?

    With the recent Brexit event happening it made me think to the Star Trek verse and its United Federation of Planets (UFP). Does anybody recall coming across any books (or perhaps it was covered in one of the shows) that deal with the Federation breaking up? There are countless stories set in...

    Politics UK "Brexit" Votes to Leave European Union (EU)!

    Well, this is a bit surprising. The UK held a referendum with it's citizens to decide on whether they wanted to remain in the European Union (EU) or to exit. By a few overall percentage points (51.89% to leave vs. 48.11% to stay) the citizens gave their voice, they want to leave. Stock...

    Politics What if Greece does exit the EU?

    Hopefully some of our UK members can shed some insight on this one as they would likely have a deeper interest in the subject, but what would it really mean if Greece were to exit the EU? For the US we are being warned that stock markets would likely be affected and, possibly, even political &...

    Politics Should Life mean Life!

    When people get imprisoned for "life" in the UK - this can mean anything from 10 years up (it rarely means actual life). With the recent sentencing for the murderers of Lee Rigby - one received a minimum of 45 years and the other actually received the sentence of being imprisoned for his actual...
