    Thanks to a great idea from Hiero, I've decided to do some synopsis threads covering the major Science Fiction tv shows. Instead of sticking all of them, I'm making this one sticky, and I'll update this post with links to the rest.

    The plan is for there to eventually be one synopsis thread for every important scifi tv show, and that hopefully this will drum up interest in the subforum. :x:


    Post here or PM if you're interested in doing one (not necessarily limited to the shows I list).

    1. Farscape
    2. Babylon 5 - lowfat
    3. Quantum Leap - Hiero
    4. Star Trek: Voyager - ManyHamsters
    5. Doctor Who - stolid_agnostic
    6. Battlestar Galactica - Tomash
    7. Star Trek - mechagrover
    8. Star Trek:The Next Generation - mechagrover
    9. Lexx
    10. Spectreman
    11. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - los

    In Progress:

    To do:
    Red Dwarf
    Firefly
    ST: Enterprise
    Stargate: Atlantis
    Eureka!
    The X-Files

    One request:

    Try to keep spoilers down. We're sort of looking for just a general overview of the primary plot, not necessarily a replacement for watching the show. :o

    That's more of a guideline than a rule, though. If you post spoilers, just mark them.

    Should I list it as an "In Progress" or leave it open until you actually start it?

    Once I catch up with the last few episodes of Eureka, I'd love to do the to-do for it.

    I suppose I could do DS9 if Ramataklan wasn't really volunteering to do it. :shrug:
