DeFlip Side #135: Sci-Fi Madness! Championship


After nearly a month of play and about 7,000 votes it all comes down to this. Two Sci-Fi series—one new, one classic, both trailblazing—duke it out to see who will take it all in DeFlip Side’s Sci-Fi Madness.

I couldn’t be more thrilled/pained that it has come down to two shows that have had such a direct impact on my life. Star Trek is almost single-handedly responsible for getting me into Science Fiction; the Star Trek novel series is indirectly responsible for me writing my Quantum Leap novel. It is impossible to understate the role Star Trek has played in my life.

And then there’s Farscape, which showed me that not all Science Fiction TV has to be Star Trek—that there’s room for a vision of the universe where the aliens are truly alien, and outer space is dangerous, down and dirty. Farscape broke the mold, and every Science Fiction series since owes it an incalculable debt.

Voting for this one is gonna be tough…

Thanks for voting! Check back for the winner and listen to our recap show on Friday, April 26!
