Home...at last

Not including Star Trek, because most of us might want to live in that universe, what other SCIFI universe do you think you would be the most comfortable in. I mean, would anyone want to live in the ALIEN or TERMINATOR futures? They are pretty crappy....

Star Trek's perfect future is one of its best traits, I think. But are there any others you might consider living in???

Does this include comic book universes? If it does then I would be pretty comfortable in either of the Marvel or DC Universes, even with all the superhero battles. As for science fiction universes Babylon 5, Dune, or Star Wars would be all pretty much.

Babylon 5's. As long as I can have my own mining/cargo ship. Just a little one or two person deal. I'd spend my time mining the asteroid belt for raw materials to sell to Mars or various bases or outposts in the solar system.

I also wouldn't mind living in the Starcraft or Stargate Universe's either now that I think about it.

Mass Effect's world seems interesting enough ...
Futurama of course
Anywhere in the world of the Hitchhiker's Guide would be a trip

Could you imagine living in the DC universe? That would be so cool, as a regular person, just watching all the amazing things that happen there...would be cool...

I think I'd like living in Isaac Asimov's Robot/Empire/Foundation universe. Specifically, I'd like living during the period when humanity first started colonizing other worlds (I think I could really get into that "frontier spirit", which is part of why Trek appeals to me, I think) or when the Trantorian Empire was at its zenith, which seems, with some exceptions, to be a golden age full of peace and prosperity.

Also, the Star Wars universe might be fun... or incredibly dangerous. I suppose it depends on your affiliations.

Oh, most certainly. That said, for my answer to the question, simply see my 'Location'.

I'd certainly want to try out for the Legion. Perhaps as Trivia King, or Beer-Drinker Lad, or Kid Guitar-Abuse (Super-trivia! Super-beer-drinking! Super-bad-guitar-playing!)

"We're sorry, Kid Guitar-Abuse; your power of Super-bad-guitar-playing would be as torturous to our ears as to our enemies'. Good luck in placing your services elsewhere."

So yeah, rejection and condescension from a bunch of teenagers but hey--free anti-gravity belt!
