Stories are one of the few true magics. Using the right words in the right order can evoke emotions in your audience and influence how they think. If you do that to enough people, you can change the public consciousness and even change the course of the future. There is no genre more imaginative for such stories than science fiction. It is there that we first envision future technologies and their potential consequences. Science fiction is a mirror through which we can glimpse possible futures, aiming at them, avoiding mistakes, and trying to plan the best course possible. It’s also a lot of fun.
We love science fiction and it’s the only name we have, not just a middle name. Check out your favorite future possibilities streaming on SYFY.
