  1. I have been a fan of the original star wars trilogy and I love Star Trek too. I know there are people who don’t want to admit that they like both. I like space opera and will definitely check your list. There are a few I haven’t got the chance to see yet like The Martian. I heard a lot about Firefly but I haven’t seen it yet.
