by Kevin Emerson
1. The uncertainty of finding a new home in Battlestar Galactica (the new series)
2. The realization that there are far more intelligent beings than us in the universe, and that we can’t even fathom our true purpose, from Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut
3. The sense of just how vast space really is, from Interstellar
4. The gritty realism of life on Mars from The Martian
5. The surprising and hilarious reveal of who’s really in charge of our world, and also the mind-boggling concepts of probability in A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
6. The terrifying and claustrophobic dangers of surviving in space, and alternately the frailty and strength of the human body, from Gravity
7. The sense of a truly epic journey, and the dangers of how human pioneers treat things they don’t understand, from The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
8. The tantalizing mix of wonder and fear of the unknown from Close Encounters of the Third Kind
9. The vision of a planet left behind, and (somewhat) of large human spaceships from Wall-E (In an early draft of Last Day on Mars, Liam had a pet cockroach, but then my editor reminded me that there was one in Wall-E);
10. The question of what it means to be human when Earth is only a memory, from Serenity (shiny!).
