Science Fiction is a genre that creates stories set in imaginative and futuristic worlds. Science Fiction is based on our human understanding of science and technology, and explores ideas of time travel, space exploration, extraterrestrial life, advanced science, and planetary colonization. Sci-fi allows us to imagine what life would be like if robots took over or if we could fly around in cars. There are many famous sci-fi films that have imagined other planets and worlds. Star Wars is the most famous sci-fi franchise, which takes place a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

What is a science fiction story?

A science fiction story typically involves the science and technology of the future. Science fiction stories mix the principles of science and science theories. A science fiction story is generally believable, but ventures onto the fantasy genre. Stories often create situations from present day and the past. They also include human elements and explains scientific developments that could affect human society in the future.

What is the difference between science fiction and fantasy?

Science fiction deals with scenarios and technology that are possible or may be possibly based on science. Fantasy on the other hand is an older genre than science fiction and deals with themes that are not plausible in real life. Both science fiction and fantasy require rules just because fantasy is not based on scientific facts doesn’t mean that anything is possible and can do anything.

Who invented science fiction?

The invention of science fiction can be attributed to Mary Shelley. She invented the genre when she wrote Frankenstein and The Modern Prometheus in 1818. Mary Shelley was only 19 years old at the time and was ahead of her time. Frankenstein was originally published anonymously with a preface by Percy Shelly. The second edition was later republished in 1822 with Mary Shelley taking credit for her work.

Okoye is a fictional Wakandan warrior and personal bodyguard to the Black Panther in Black Panther and the extended Marvel franchise.

Stormtrooper

Stormtroopers are the soldiers of the imperial, and later the First Order, armies in the Star Wars movies and extended franchise. Conscripted or stolen at birth, Stormtroopers are given only a number instead of a name, and brainwashed into perfect soldiers for their entire lives. Stormtroopers play a key role in every battle, as well as maintaining order as law enforcement and executing the Empire’s will throughout the galaxy. Finn (known as F1-N1 as a stormtrooper) is one of the only stormtroopers to ever defect. A symbol of force throughout the galaxy, Stormtroopers are easily identified by their all-white armor and signature helmets.
