New Scientist SPACE - Breaking News - The World's Best Space Sci-Fi Ever: Your verdict

Another interesting poll of sci-fi fans. This one has books, television and movies as the groups to consider.

What is interesting is the position of "Firefly" and "Serenity". While they are both great in fact I agree with putting "Serenity ahead of the last three Star Wars movies, I don't know if it should have first place over all. To me that honour should go to 2001: A Space Odessy. I would have also placed "Blade Runner" in the top 10, perhaps even the top 5. Also I would have included the first Matrix movie, which was simply astonishing and was far better received then the first Star Wars movie.

What about television? Firefly may be the best sci-fi series, if you consider the fact that it is such a refreshing change. Some more additions, the original "Outer Limits" and "The Twilight Zone" to add a few. Good to see Dr. Who in the top 5.

Now books, good choice overall. Can't argue with this placement.
