If you are a gamer, or nerd in general, then you are into science fiction (at least we have never met one that isn’t). Popular science fiction, as we know it now, is technically considered space opera as opposed to the hard science fiction that was the standard in the sixties and seventies.
In this episode we talk about the different games devoted to this very popular genre.
