Re: Is fantasy more popular than science fiction? If so why?

If you want "real" fantasy tropes in Star Trek, how about referring to The Cage, in particular the castle on Rigel VII, for just one example. That was a typical fairy tail setting, with Pike even defending a princess. It was part fantasy within the story-line, but it was also based on events which Pike had just lived.
Because no one EVER builds castles in real life...

The Alcubierre drive math checks out. What we lack are metallurgy and energy production technology (at present).
So, still pretty implausible. Like orcs.
No, just not "do-able"...yet. "not yet achievable" =/= "implausable" or "fantasy" or any other such word.
