2nd Annual SFR Brigade Midsummer Blog Hop

SFR Brigade Midsummer Blog Hop

Welcome to the Second Annual Midsummer Blog Hop, sponsored by the SFR Brigade. Woo-hoo!

The theme for this year’s Midsummer Blog Hop is out of this world. No really, this is a science fiction romance group, so that’s the theme. Which “out of this world” setting is your favorite? Or my favorite, as the case may be.

USS Enterprise NCC-1701If I had to pick an imagined future that I would want to live in, it would still, even all these years later, be Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future from the original Star Trek series. By the time that Kirk & Co. flew the original Enterprise out of the San Francisco shipyards in 2245, the Federation seems to have solved most of the problems that we have today. It’s not just that it would take a “post-scarcity economy” to come up with something like the Prime Directive, but that everyone on the Enterprise, and her namesakes A, B, C, D and E all seem to enjoy their jobs and have such purpose. Somedays I envy them. The universe of the reboot seems to have gone to hell in handcart. I wouldn’t want to live there, even if it is entertaining to visit.

What fictional universe would you most want to live in? And which one do you think would be worth an adventure visit?

SFR Brigade Badge As a blogger-member of the SFR Brigade, my mission, and I have decided to accept it (no apologies for trope mixing) is to promote science fiction romance in general, and today, the Midsummer Blog Hop in particular.

  1. Love reading sci-fi romance books! I like reading about space travel the most!
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  2. I always loved the Star Trek “world”. Star Wars was fun but way to political and dystopic. Star Trek faced dystopic and places they visited humans had reverted back to their errors, but humankind for the most part had learned from their mistakes and the series showcased how honorable we could be as a species.

  3. WOW! What a fun post and giveaway! I’d also love to live in the Star Trek world. Everyone seemed to get along and had purpose and high tech stuff 🙂

  4. Beta Colony in the Vorkosigan universe sounds rational and progressive. Connie Willis’ time-travel would probably be my adventure speed. Thanks for a fun hop!

  5. I think I’d pick Trek too because it did solve so many of today’s bad issues.

  6. I am also a Star Trek fan and I must agree with you. “Boldly going where no man has gone before to explore new worlds” would be awesome. Thanks for the giveaway.

  7. I’m with you as far as living in the “Star Trek” universe….but for adventure I’d love to travel to Defiance.

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!
