What makes you a fan of Science Fiction? The poll choices are limited so answer to what is the closest to your reason. There are some people that don't consider themselves a SciFi fan but are fans of individual SciFi works like Star Trek, Firefly, BattleStar Galactica and many other storylines. I, myself, am a fan of the concept of Science Fiction. I like Science a lot. I love how the fiction in Scifi expands the science and explores the effects of it on the human condition. The closer the Scifi is to actual science the more I enjoy it. Also being a fan of Fantasy allows me to enjoy SciFi that has missed its mark on the science but has a good story. If you have chosen 'Other' please explain why you are a SciFi fan. I think it would be interesting to read how others perceive the genre. There is no wrong response. We are all different and your reasons are yours.
