List Criteria: Top sci-fi series in film, TV, gaming, and books

Science fiction is a very popular genre in books, films, video games, and television shows. Some of the biggest grossing movies at the box office are science fiction franchises. It is one of the few genres that can combine a rabid underground following with ultimately a mainstream. wider audience. If not for this delicate mix, franchises like Star Wars, Star Trek, and even Back to the Future and The Terminator wouldn't be as popular as they are.
