"Science fiction is the only genre that really allows you to explore issues with a point of view without seeming preachy."

"One of the great advantages of working in science fiction is it does give you an opportunity to talk about interesting and somewhat controversial themes and social issues and in a way that doesn't really threaten the audience, because I'm not challenging their particular points of view." RONALD D. MOORE

Critics are mixed on 'Jurassic World Dominion.' Will it be the best of the franchise or "one big pile of s---"?

"Every single part of the Earth reacts with every other part. It’s one thing. Every little animal is important in that ecosystem. [Seeing the Earth] makes you realize that, and makes you want to be a little more proactive in keeping it that way. If I could get every Earthling to do one circle of the Earth, I think things would run a little differently."– Karen Nyberg, NASA astronaut

Science fiction movies have given us many timeless lines, such as E.T.’s “phone home,” the Terminator’s “I’ll be back,” and HAL 9000’s downright unsettling “I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.” Sci-fi films have also provided a few classic misquotes, perhaps most notably Darth Vader’s frequently repeated “Luke, I am your father”— Vader’s actual line is the less catchy “No, I am your father.”

But what science fiction does best is make us think. As Arthur C. Clarke once said, “Science fiction is often very far from escapism, in fact you might say that science fiction is escape into reality… It’s a fiction which does concern itself with real issues: the origin of man; our future.” Or consider Steven Spielberg's assertion that “science fiction’s always been the kind of first level alert to think about things to come.”

It’s no surprise, then, that sci-fi movies are replete with thought-provoking quotes. Here are some of the best, from 1950s classics to modern sci-fi masterpieces, covering everything from artificial intelligence to the nature of reality and humankind’s place in the universe.

"Some writers are still blindly enamored with science and gadgetry, but I don't think it's as prevalent as it once was. Almost everybody these days pays lip service to literary value; some people talk the talk without walking the walk, but I do believe that most SF/fantasy writers are aiming above the least common denominator."

Making a moon

"Astronomers have captured the first clear shot of a moon-forming disk around an exoplanet. Researchers say this stellar snapshot serves as the first unambiguous detection of a circumplanetary disk capable of brewing it's own moon. They suspect that the amount of material surrounding PDS 70 c is enough to create three moon sized satellites."

"I don't think "science fiction" is a very good name for it, but it's the name that we've got. It is different from other kinds of writing, I suppose, so it deserves a name of its own. But where I can get prickly and combative is if I'm just called a sci-fi writer. I'm not. I'm a novelist and poet. Don't shove me into your damn pigeonhole, where I don't fit, because I'm all over. My tentacles are coming out of the pigeonhole in all directions."
