Star Wars.

#5 Posted by Doomnaut (1993 posts) - - Show Bio

I chose Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. Those were some of the funniest books I have ever read.

#6 Posted by Delphic (1470 posts) - - Show Bio

It's not really a franchise, but I would choose Cowboy Bebop.

#7 Edited by MaccyD (4053 posts) - - Show Bio

I picked the longest-running still-going sci-fi of course!

#8 Posted by WillPayton (9443 posts) - - Show Bio

A number of really good franchises, but I had to go with Stargate. SG-1 and Atlantis were great shows and lots of fun. I wish they bring it back with another show of that caliber. SG Universe only started getting good at the end. The whole first season was a snoozefest.

Aren't Alien and Predator now one franchise?

#12 Posted by SpideyIvyDaredevilFan26 (6482 posts) - - Show Bio

Star Wars. And yes, the prequels were masterpieces as well. (Well, Episode II and III anyway.)

#13 Posted by PowerHerc (83461 posts) - - Show Bio

Flash Gordon.

Nothing beats star wars unless your a trekkie but 2nd and 3rd for me would be predator then alien or maybe the thing

#16 Posted by Yokergeist (12355 posts) - - Show Bio

I didn't know they made a Halo movie...

#17 Edited by dccomicsrule2011 (24774 posts) - - Show Bio

Star Wars for me, easily.

Star Trek. Easily the most intelligent franchise ever. Love Stargate, Star Wars, Doctor Who too.

I think Star Wars and Doctor Who are a lot more fantasy than sci-fi to win the "best sci-fi franchise" crown.

And though I am sort of Alien/Predator/Terminator fetishist, their universes are too small to compete with the others.

Well...They were. I have seen them again and again and again and fail to see why people hate them other than bitter nostalgia and failure to embrace the new. I could go on for HOURS about why the prequels were masterpieces and how they are some of the best sci-fi films ever. I really could, and could counteract any attack a bitter fanboy may have against them.

Star Wars

then

Aliens

#24 Posted by The Stegman (24360 posts) - - Show Bio

I hate Sci-fi, except for Star Wars.

#25 Edited by TotalBalance (742 posts) - - Show Bio

Star Trek, because TNG was one of the greatest television series of all time IMO.

#26 Posted by Xwraith (18095 posts) - - Show Bio

Star Wars, although sometimes I feel it shouldn't be.

Doctor Who, with Dune in second place.......

#28 Posted by BullPR (895 posts) - - Show Bio

Not a lot a big "classics" here, however I notice Dune for example. So if Dune is part of your criteria, what about Foundation (Isaac Asimov), The Culture (Ian M Banks) etc, etc...

It would have been more logical (in my opinion) to remove form this list: Dune, Ender and Douglas Adams. It would have been more consistent I believe...

Damn did not think of Transformers as Sc Fi for some reason... I never think of it as that but it is. Ha ha

Well with that said that means I still cannot vote on this poll.

I have a professionally framed print depicting the First Cylon War hanging over my computer desk as I type this. I feel compelled to vote for Battlestar. I'm really only a casual fan of Star Wars and Star Trek. And even though Alien is one of my all time favorite movies, its also the only one I like outta the whole bunch.

WH40K

#39 Edited by OptimusPalm (1803 posts) - - Show Bio

I couldn't decide between Aliens/predators or terminator.....

#40 Posted by Delphic (1470 posts) - - Show Bio

Gundam

At first I was going to say Gundam, but when I really thought about it, there's not a lot there to explore because every series has a distinct ending that pretty much renders the Mobile Suits no longer practical, and a sci-fi universe whose story ends with the destruction of the main element that makes it a sci-fi universe loses it's luster. It would be really cool though to be able to see the mobile suits in their prime though, but once the war ends and peace time is abound the mobile suits normally have a nasty habit of "blowing up".

#41 Posted by Doomnaut (1993 posts) - - Show Bio

Damn. Didn't think Star Wars was going to get so many votes.

#42 Edited by Doomnaut (1993 posts) - - Show Bio

Bump.

#46 Posted by War Killer (20194 posts) - - Show Bio

Gotta go with Doctor Who. I love Star Wars, Star Trek and many other Science Fiction shows, movies, and comics but Doctor Who just blends them all together making it feel like you could really step into a random blue box and see the stars.

#47 Posted by DecoyElite (4019 posts) - - Show Bio

Um...erm...Gonna go with Hitchhikers.

#48 Posted by lykopis (10746 posts) - - Show Bio
