Science Fiction as a genre uses extreme settings and conflicts to explore the ethics and consequences of the decisions we make in the here and now. These stories capture our imagination, challenge our perceptions of who we are, and demand that we look critically at the world we live in today so that we can be participants in determining what the world of TOMORROW may look like.
