@sbwest what other scifi shows do you like? i can recommend a starting point with trek because there is so much, it can be intimidating!

@ezrijadzia hm, you know now that I think about it, I haven't watched much sci-fi in a long time haha. I was never able to get into Dr. Who, but I started watching The Expanse and BSG and liked those. I've started watching TNG and enjoyed the first few episodes. I think the main issue for me is that it's tough for me to commit the time to watching a series with a lot of episodes.


@ezrijadzia I've read more sci-fi than I've watched. Lately been reading Richard K Morgan's altered carbon trilogy (super problematic when it comes to how he treats female characters, but it has some really interesting anticapitalist themes that surface in later novels). Generally like dystopian sci-fi in the lines of Gibson, but would love to expand my palette!

@sbwest there are some dystopian elements to the expanse, especially a few books in (don't want to say more because huge, giant spoilers!). the only thing for me missing from them is more trans people--otherwise they are very diverse books across race and sexuality.
