    One of the best descriptions of Star Wars I’ve seen is that it is like an issue of Planet Stories (the magazine) without the letter’s page.

    I like Planet Stories … and Babylon 5 … and Star Trek … and Star Wars … and E.T. … and The (original) Day The Earth Stood Still … and The Lord of the Rings … and… well, you get the pciture.

    I was once in a bookstore looking through the Science Fiction section when a woman I did not know came up and said, “That is escapism.” I replied, “That is why I read it”, and went back to looking at books. Now and then you need to escape from everyday problems. You also need to know when to come back.

    I must give some credit here early:

    The “But Star Wars is fantasy, not sci-fi… it literally has a princess” argument actually belongs to my Mom, and was something she would sigh often with a heavy eye roll. I could not resist popping it into this strip! ❤️

    (Annnnnd she LOVES Lord of the Rings… Man too… Me three, lol)

    Second panel is pretty much what my writing teacher has said about Star Wars being fantasy, though IIRC he was more about how the Force is all magic and stuff. I’m not really a fan myself, but I’m still super amused at this whole thing.

    Embrace your fandoms and don’t let others tell you what you can or can’t like!

    I would have to put Star Wars in as sci-fi movie not fantasy. Fantasy IMHO is LOTR as well as anything by Piers Anthony. That may put Star wars in the same galaxy as Star Trek but they are still light years apart as far as sub genres go though. Star Trek is futuristic Utopian sci-fi while 2001 A Space Odyssey and Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars Trilogy are Hard sci-fi. Some of the work by Turtledove (his World War series with reptilian invaders arriving at the start of WWII and A World of Difference where Mars is larger and has an oxygen atmosphere and life) is alternate history sci fi and Fahrenheit 451 and Logan’s run are dystopian sci-fi. Star Wars is a sub genre onto itself, I am not sure if I can pigeon hole it…,

    I like high fantasy best. Sci-fi is not my thing.

    I saw a nonexistent high fantasy show in one of my dreams when I was surfing the internet or watching the TV in my dream but I remember only one character from the show and I forgot the story but all that I remember I enjoyed the show.

    I can’t believe I see all these amazing things in my dreams.

    Meanwhile, Back on the Nile

    Adobe Style: This is your roving reporter in Afar, giving you the latest on the wedding of Avenger and Emma-Peelia. We see that Queen Catshepsut the Golden has arrived with her entourage. Your Majesty, may we have a word?

    The Queen: Certainly, my dear reporter. I would like to introduce Lupinium, who will provide entertainment for the reception, and Elvis-Anum, our Royal Scribe who has graciously created the wedding scroll from which Baba-Stet will read the ceremony, and the guest scroll.

    Adobe Style: Pleased to meet you, Mr. Elvis-Anum. I understand you will be wearing a tunic designed exclusively by that renowned designer, Pais-Leprent.

    Elvis-Anum: Well, I don’t like to boast, but I do cut quite a dash in Ms. Leprent’s outfit.

    Lupinium: Well, a hyphen at least.

    Adobe Style: Mr. Lupinium, I understand you will be providing the entertainment for the reception. Can you tell us what you have planned?

    Lupinium: I don’t usually have a planned program. I prefer to improvise. But it will be spectacular.

    Adobe-Style: Thank you for taking a few minutes to talk with us. I suppose now you want to unload your camels and get settled. By the way, where are Kara and Vann?

    The Queen: They arrived here early. Please meet Humphrey and Lauren.

    Adobe-Style: Delighted to meet you. Enjoy your stay in Afar.

    The Queen: Isn’t that the Royal Procurers? How did they get here so fast.

    Alice-Ata: Thanks for the lift, Doc.

    One show I really enjoyed was People Of Earth. More comedy than science fiction I suppose, but I really wish they’d continued with it.

    Well, I don’t know about the rest, but I’m absolutely in agreement with the Man about Star Wars. Trust someone who’s both a long-time lover of sci-fi and as someone who’s actually taken classes on the subject (yes, I actually took a class on it in college—one of the best classes I ever had :D)—Star Wars is really not that great of a sci-fi, but before you whip out those lightsabers, that’s largely because it doesn’t really intend to. It’s more focused on the spectacle and the adventure…it’s really more of an action/adventure movie that just happens to be set in space than anything else.

    Not that this makes Star Wars “bad” or anything, of course. Personally, I wouldn’t call myself a Star Wars fan per se, but I have seen all of the films to date and was still able to enjoy them for what they are…and at the end of the day, that’s really what’s more important. :)

    Today is “Compliment Your Mirror” Day. Mirror, mirror, on the wall, ain’t I got no sense at all? Why would I ask you, when all you show is reverse reality? At least what you show is as honest as you can make it, unlike what I see in other panes of glass, inevitably.

    Frankly, complimenting my mirror, or any mirror, is more that a bit of a stretch. And why would I compliment something that says “Objects in view are closer than they appear”? Fat lot of good that does.

    There is the valid genre of the Science Fantasy. This uses a science fiction setting for cautionary tales, often nearly direct translations of classic fairy tales. Lost in Space, for example, had one episode which was a pretty close adaptation of “The Frog Prince.”

    Star Wars is nonsense. And Star Trek is ridiculous. Just think, which advanced creatures would invent a device as lame as a light sabre? And it’s impractical in the first place for that’s not how light works. And Star Trek… Where do I begin!

    Actually, Star Wars is Sci-fi/Fantasy. It has common elements of so many sci-fi movies and TV shows; high technology (blasters, lightsabers, computers, shields, lasers, landspeeders, cyborgs), space setting, alien planets (Tatooine, Hoth, Bespin, Yavin IV, the Forest Moon of Endor) robots (Artoo, Threepio, numerous astromechs, medical droids) space ships (Star Destroyers, X-Wings, TIE Fighters, the Millenium Falcon), aliens. At the same time it has some of the common themes of many fantasy movies and TV shows; magic (the Force) wizards (Jedi and Sith) swords and sword fights (lightsabers and lightsaber duels), ghosts (Force-spirits).

    As for the man’s arguement that Star Wars having a princess can’t make it sci-fi, wasn’t it established in the fifth movie that Spock’s half brother was the son of a Vulcan PRINCESS.

    As a final note, looks like Puck is looking to alienate all the other fandoms.

    Hi, asking for some support – I need to stay scared so I continue to eat more healthfully. I was just at my Drs and i’m back up to 252,(i’m only 5’) am prediabetic and she was worried that i had heart failure. thank God that’s ok, but that gave me the kick in the butt to start eating more healthfully, but i’ve got a long journey ahead, 130 steps (aka 130 lbs) and I tend to get bogged down and discouraged several times along the way. i’m seriously thinking about getting a heartbeat tattoo on one of my left fingers to remind me. thanks and love!

    I never cared for the Star Wars series. I saw the first three, I have no interest in seeing the rest. Star Trek was okay when it first ran, although I never could stand Kirk. I liked Spock, Sulu, and Scotty. I do love the Lord of the Rings, anything Heinlein, Lovecraft, or Poe based, and the Harry Potter series was entertaining.
