Sci Fi Rating System

By:

Given the difference between fantasy and sci fie subs, I am proposing a voluntary Rating system

Rating Description/Criteria
10 Proven, existing technology, perhaps with creative application.
9 Technology is currently in functioning Prototype stage. Examples: Boston Dynamics military robots
8 Technology is currently in functioning Prototype stage, but application in submission exaggerates its capabilities.
7 Technology does not exist, though its existence does not seem to violate any known laws of physics, including availability of materials. Eg. Fusion Power plants
6 Technology does not exist, it does not appear to violate laws of physics, though scale and availability of raw materials may be stretched. Eg. Beanstalks, Antimatter power plants
5 Adheres to Einsteinian Physics - i.e. Limited to speed of light
4
3 Adheres to Newtonian Physics - Conservation of Energy
2 Adheres to Aristotelian Physics - follows _some_ system.
Eg: Star Trek
1 Attempts to follow most Sci Fie tropes, but magic or psionics plays a major part - eg. Star Wars, Babylon 5
0 Pure magic. Does not follow any semblance of physical possibility.

Or fill in the missing numbers and add examples, citing both popular entrants in the genre like Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, etc

I would expect some rather spirited discussion. Much of star trek/star wars i would put in the 1 or lower category :)

True but the scale distinctly favors 20 minutes into the future sci-fi, which distinctly limits what can be high rated versus low rated.

Ardwals Focus

       By: valadaar

If it was a castle, it was the strangest one he had ever seen.

He of course saw the main tower - taller than anything he had seen outside of Stoneholt, the spire looked fragile and was topped by a glassed-in chamber.

The outer wall was so gently sloped that it would have only stopped a horde of hobbling old men, an able-bodied soldier could stride up to its crest with little effort. Within one saw a huge, nearly perfect bowl-shaped area with the base of the tower in the centre, covered in hundreds of mirrors.

----

This structure is a massive solar collector designed by the Wizard-King Aardwal in centuries past. He used the concentrated light in his investigations into the magic of light, and in the fashioning of flash crystals.
