Basic Information

Science Fiction is a broad and vaguely defined category, which can be a setting, a genre, or both. In fact, it's sometimes so hard to create clear borders between sci-fi and fantasy, that a whole new term (Speculative Fiction) was created to encompass them (and Horror, and Alternate History and several other things).

Science Fiction is about Science and Technology, more or less. It may be about their impact on society, or it may be about the cool things ultratech lets the hero do. Heck, it might just be about scoring with green-skinned space babes. See the Mohs Scale of Science Fiction Hardness for a discussion about different stories and settings, and how rigorously they apply science to the fiction.
