Well, the Sci-Fi Hack of Swords & Wizardry is probably going to be genre specific (but hopefully the genre can be plucked out without much ado - time will tell ;). It's still in the brainstorming phase but I am definitely going to be drawing inspiration from Classic Traveller, Crypts & Things and of course Swords & Wizardry.
Now, for me, the two best Sci-Fi franchises are Babylon 5 and Firefly, and they cover very different niches. What I want to hear is what defines the type of sci-fi you'd like to game in - your favorite genre and why.
I've have ideas for character generation and skill use and such, but for genre I'm personally all over the map - I like a lot of different types of Sci-Fi.
So, sell me on your favorite ;)
Note: this will be the labor of a hobbyist, with pieces hitting the blog as they come to me. It's pace is it's own.
