It’s dead, Jim! So how do you keep the fandom alive? Does the release of new merchandise and the re-issued super collector’s edition DVD mean there’s still hope for more? Would you accept comic book, novels, or a “Battlestar Galactica” – style “reimagining” instead? Does it ever become time to just move on? (Heresy!)

Title:SFF_050: The Ethics Of First Contact
Date:7 Apr 2010 16:01:09 GMT
Download File:
Description:Description from the Boskone 47 pocket program: First Contact between humans and aliens is one of the lasting tropes of SF. "Lasers first" or "We come in Peace"? Sometimes the advanced aliens contact us primitive humans, and sometimes space-faring humans are doing the contacting. But once contact has happened, what is the moral dimension? Should an advanced race always hide itself from markedly less advanced races for fear of stunting their natural growth? Can it ever be moral to leave individuals in primitive poverty simply in hopes that their descendants might one day develop their own culture? Is the Prime Directive nothing but heartless selfishness? Can advanced peoples colonize a planet inhabited by primitives and live in peace with them? Is there any right answer here? Are there any useful object lessons from Terran history? Walter H. Hunt (m), Paul Levinson, Allen M. Steele, Vernor Vinge

Description:Description from the pocket program: “Our Special Guest looks back on 50 rewarding years of being a SF fan, and 40 much less rewarding years of being a professor of English, and asks: what created SF?

SF has produced a string of visions, shared and developed by a host of authors, but some of these are now running out of conviction (like NASA). What could give SF a boost? Are we looking at ‘Day Million’ or ‘The Dying Earth’?”
