What the heck is this site all about? Space Opera (SO). No, not the kind of opera with tenors and viking helmets. Close. This site is for fans of the Space Opera genre. It’s a subset of Science Fiction, and usually includes larger than life settings, highly dramatic conflicts, and hopping about the planets and stars.
Examples from mainstream culture: Star Wars, Battle Star Galactica, and Stargate SG-1.
Here you’ll find articles on all things related to SO. We’ll cover authors, books, movies, games, tv, toys … you name it. The goal is to make this site more like an encyclopedia than a blog. I’d like visitors to be able to easily find whatever they’re looking for.
Also, my intent is NOT to duplicate effort – Wikipedia has excellent and well researched articles on most of the topics, so we’ll simply embed them live. That means of the article gets updated on Wikipedia, it will here was well. But we’re not just stuffing the site with wikipedia entries, that’s simply one datapoint. We’ll pull together encyclopedic entries, reviews, commentary, opinion and lots of stunning art!
Thanks for visiting the site!
