I want to ask you about all of those dreaded Sci-Fi clichés, and which ones would you list among the worst? The Chosen one - I absolutely resent having a hero being central to the story because that individual is a veritable McGuffin or is prophesized to be The only one who can do "X". The Scardicat - drawing of a firearm or other gun like weapon is immediately followed by screams from females. The enlightened rebel - I have all the answers - but because my ideas aren't in all the established scientific paperwork I am totally ignored! Only my rogue ideas will result in victory! The ignorant expert - the foil of the enlightened rebel. The ex-spurt (a has been, + Drip under pressure) has memorized vast amounts of scientific work, but as the saying goes, "Those who can, do. those who can't, teach". I.e. said expert may know all the work done by other scientists, but has no experiments and discoveries of their own. Starfighter dogfights - cool, but in reality... turrets swivel, track, and fire pretty darn accurately these days, so the fighters in question either need to be as many light seconds away as possible or fast and evasive enough to evade the turret.
