Sci Fi Tropes

Galaxy

Today’s topic comes from QSFer Angel Martine: “From a reader perspective – what bugs you most in your favorite genre?”

Let’s tackle this in the sci fi genre. We all hacve things that, when we read them, just drive us up the wall.

For sci fi, one of mine is when writers blithely talk about characters going from galaxy to galaxy. As if one galaxy wasn’t big enough? As if the trip between intergalactic gulfs was like a walk across the street?

So what are your pet peeves with sci fi stories? The tropes authors often use, or outright mistakes you see repeated over and over again? Jim Comer, this one’s tailor-made for you!
