Ryan VaseyIt had a small paper rocketship that I would push across the page and through little slotted holes to get through to the next page. It was very cool and I'd love to buy a used copy but I'm having trouble searching as I don't know the name or any details

BuzzA friend of mine remembers a very short (just a page or two) science fiction story in which a macho astronaut landed on a planet of women, who were first amused then irritated by his chest-beating mannerisms. When he insisted on proving his valor against mortal peril, they injected him with a di...

Q: Have any recent sci-fi novels given us a piece of tech or science that is an innovative original idea?

MaxSci-fi was always innovative and prescient but as the years passed; there really haven’t been a lot of innovative concepts being created in sci-fi. This may be because of the so-called slump in science in the real world but I don’t really think sci-fi should have that problem. It is always thinki...

Q: Science Fiction movie which used Eagles from Space: 1999

M. A. GoldingI seem to remember seeing a science fiction movie in the late 70s or 80s which seemed very cheap. As I remember, it eagle spaceships from Space: 1999 were used as alien spaceships instead of the flying saucers you would expect. I think the plot had something about aliens coming to Earth up to no...

Q: Aniara Spear - One of many sent to destroy the Earth?

MattIn Aniara, the large metal Spear was made of an "unknown" material, so if we take this to mean "Alien" in origin and open the possibility that this Spear may have only been one of many launched on that trajectory, then this could have been part of a group of "Planet Killer" objects intended for t...

Q: Help in identifying a 70's? (or 80s?) Graphic Novel about a swords and sandals protagonist that founds a space faring kingdom that lands aship onearth

lordguan88When I was a kid, I remembered finding a very old comic book (I think it might have been from the 70s or 80s) that had a unique plot. The comic opens up with a spaceship with a space crew that was all dead landing on earth, and nobody knew where they came from. The ship also contains an archive t...

Q: Old TV series about a blonde alien girl who can read minds and a man who must help her

Sebastián LalauretteThis show is almost certainly from the 80s, maybe early 90s. A long-haired, slender blonde young woman arrives on Earth escaping from some organization, I think, and encounters a man who has to help her. (He might be from the CIA or a cop?) As soon as they meet he has sexual thoughts and she acts...

Q: Science fiction book - defending earth with space shuttles

JoeRead this a while ago: the space-opera theme of aliens attacking Earth. The defenders fly "space shuttles" armed with rockets (perhaps originally intended for meteor defense). Notably the Earth defenders win because the Earth has a power station in orbit transmitting down to the planet via a mic...

Donatello SwansinoWhen "Batman" tries to argue that he should lead the Justice League, he says that Green Lantern can't lead because Your weakness is the color yellow.
