    Star Cops was a particular favourite of mine

    A realistic account of police procedures in the early days of space colonisation; microgravity, good science, computer viruses- excellent stuff.

    Movie: Well I haven't seen too many sci fi movies that I'd actually call "great." Sure, "Star Wars" but everybody loved that one. I also liked the very first Star Trek Movie, but part of that was just seeing the Star Trek universe done with high-budget modern technology. So I'll vote for "Galaxy Quest." It was very amusing, very nicely done, and it struck a very difficult balance between taking itself too seriously and descending into self-parody.

    TV show: On the other hand there have been too many great sci fi TV shows. On a different day I'd be just as likely to vote for Star Trek:TNG or Farscape, but today it's Babylon 5. They did such a great job with emotional issues. I'll never forget the episode when that entire planet's population was dying off because of an AIDS-like epidemic that they couldn't bring themselves to talk about until it was too late. Dr. Franklin worked feverishly and finally came up with the cure and they RAN back to the cargo hold where the people were being cared for by the Minbari... and every single one of them had died. And that tug on our heartstrings wasn't bad enough, we had to deal with the heartbroken Minbari.

    It's so nice to see Mira Furlan on "Lost." I think she really is a Minbari.

    The best classic sci fi movie to me would have to be The Day The Earth Stood Still almost tied but in second place would be War Of The Worlds with Gene Barry . The best classic sci fi tv show for me would be the original Outer Limits . There was a very short lived show that starred Joe Morton as the head surgeon of a hospital in space . It was called Mercy Point and it was like a combination of ER and Babylon 5 . It only aired about six or eight shows but I thought it was an excellent show . I'm surprised that the Sci Fi channel hasn't aired the show . Does anyone besides me remember Mercy Point ?
