Q: Sesame Street novels

Abraham RayI just have to know, as I’ve never seen any: are there any novels based upon the Sesame Street movies? It seems reasonable to expect some, but again I’ve never seen any myself.

Q: Movie Identification - 80s Ghost Romance Involving A Medieval Castle?

DrakkenfyreI recall seeing a movie when I was a young child in the early 80s about a man who fell in love with the ghost of a medieval woman.

Q: Which humanoid race was the first warp-capable species?

Vogon PoetThis question excludes exotic species such as Species 8472, Founders, Sargon, or the Q. It’s looking for humanoid species allegedly seeded by the Preservers who are known to be warp-capable. From known histories, who won the great space race?

Two questions just asked on Mi Yodeya relating to Science Fiction/Fantasy:
Q: Who owns Superman?

Maurice MizrahiIn the 1930s, two Jewish boys, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, created the comic book character Superman. In 1938, badly in need of money, they sold the rights to the character for $130, to what would later become DC Comics. Superman was a huge success and generated millions in profit, but his crea...

Q: Would teleportation be allowed?

user9806[Inspired by this https://imgur.com/a/9R316XO ] Suppose 'teleportation' like the transporter in star trek - where you are disassembled atom by atom, and reassembled in another location - becomes a reality. It will then likely become the most ubiquitous way for people to travel around - to/from ...

Q: Are there any known parceltongues in in Harry Potter at the current time period?

user13267We know that Voldemort was one, being a descendant of Slytherin. Harry was one as well, by virtue of having a piece of Voldemort inside of him.

Q: In Prometheus, is it not implied that they did not just create human life but literally all life on Earth?

releseabeAlthough it seems to be the understanding Elizabeth Shaw and Weyland that the Engineers created human life, the first scene on the apparently pristine planet where the Engineer's body dissolves and seeds the water with his DNA seems to strongly imply that it was all life (on Earth, probably) that...

Q: Why isn't there armor to protect from spells in HPU?

Q: Fan made story of the 70th Hunger Games

Mor ZamirI read this story about 2 years ago. It was a fan-made and it told the story about Annie Cresta's victory in the 70th Hunger games. I realize it's not a lot, but the things I remember from it are the things that are already mentioned in the books. The writer created the story with the little ...

Q: Was it Mrs. Weasley's intent to publicly shame the whole Weasley family by sending Ron a howler?

LunaI am wondering what are the disciplinary purpoes of parents who send a howler to their child. Is it merely to raise a voice to show the child they're distraught and angry, or the purpose is also a public shaming (I imagine the howler's voice carries all over the great hall or a classroom at Hogw...

I wonder if answering scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/29324/… makes sense...
I'd probably remove some spoilers in the answers. No point in hiding the answers, when a question itself is in a spoiler
Well I can't say I'm 100 % sure, but case seems pretty clear - surprising all these guys spawned such stuff
OP isn't active so answer wouldn't get accepted and probably hard to find

rul30Given that Black Library offers an enormous number of books, I was wondering what the process looks like which ensures that alle the stories do align nicely and do not contradict each other. Is there a review board which checks new books? How does e.g. Dan Abnett know what to write and so it doe...

Q: A few people struggle with my on-topic question & shut it down. Where is the difficulty?

Vogon PoetI am out of ideas. I watched Star Trek: TNG episode “The Chase” & had a specific question. A great truth about the ST universe was revealed: many humanoid species shared universal common descent and were deliberately populated to make the galaxy “less lonely.” Some of these created species evol...
