It is therefore not astonishing that many of the most ineradicable stories in sci-fi are about war. These are the 12 most important sci-fi war stories of all times. Emshwillers covers for Heinlein's "Starship Troopers" in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. We' asked on our Facebook page what your favourite sci-fi war stories are, and we've got over 300 answers.

{\a6} (Including one from the Facebook page for the John Dies at the End film that made our day.) With Firefly, it's really about how war is changing peoples forever. So, yes, this is a great sci-fi war show. This tabletop games installment, which will take place in about 38,000 years, will show the whole of the war-world.

Also, some folks have some of the books that have been released for this title, such as the Gaunt's Ghosts serial by vet director Dan Abnett, about a very particular regime that are "like a brother sci-fi band," as Steve puts it. "Nearly every Warhammer 40K is a great war story," says Brian.

World of Warcraft: Star Trek: Deep Space 9 The Domino War is perhaps the most challenging set of stories Star Trek has ever produced, with the domination being launched in the second episode of the show and the war rampaging for several years, reaching its climax in the final of the game. He has always dealt with issues of war ethic and strategies, going back to the original show and essays such as "A Taste of Armageddon" and "Balance of Terror".

John Scalzi People's Old Man's War commend this show for its "Kick-Ass fights" and "pure joy", and for being a grandiose cry to Heinlein's great army tales, especially to the Starship Troopers, which are reported more in one piece. This brave history of the years to come offers a wondrous regeneration that will bring them back to perfection in life - and the only hitch is that they will have to struggle in a war that will probably slay them as quickly as old age would.

Armour by John Steakley In this SF military classic, a man called Felix is a grunts in the vanguard of the invasion of the barren world of Banshee. At SFF Audio, Jesse Willis writes: "Armor synthesises the plot of Heinlein's Heinlein Controllers with the emotive effect of Haldeman's The Forever War - and yet it comes across as a totally original narrative.

World War The primordial planetary war history is still one of the most important - it's difficult to exaggerate the meaning of the first pictures of extraterrestrials that come to our planets and kick our ass. It is one of the most efficient representations of asymmetric combat from the point of view of the less armed side and a fundamental war history of the art of war.

As various folks have pointed out, Star Wars has "war" in its name, which is usually a corpse give-away. However, the initial triology also revolves around the struggles between the rebellion and the Imperium, whereby the Imperium tries to achieve a definitive technical dominance through its Death Star series.

One also praises Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy. Düne by Frank Herbert Dies is one of the great basic text of sci-fi that examines the ascent of Paul Muad'dib and the battle with the Harkonnens for power over arrakis, the most precious resource in the universe: the spicy mélange.

From the first mini-series to the Battle of New Caprica, as several folks said, the whole series of chapters is a must. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card Soon to be a film, this novel contains a sinister, crazy sataphor for the way the war is corrupting young men - Ender Wiggin becomes a "xenocide" without his knowing it, and his knack for slaughtering is becoming legend in all mankind's civilisations.

Even years later Haldeman's portrayal of the reality of inter-stellar travelling - and in particular the dilatation of space caused by travelling in optical years - still appears ground-breaking and singular. War against the Taurians goes on and on, and William Mandella is more and more a man out of our times, faced with a world that no longer makes meaning to him.

There is no beating in this film about the cultural shocks a returnee vet experiences when everyone else has in between. When the war is over, Mandella has only grown old a decade, but more than a thousand years have passed - and then we find that the war has not even really paid off.

At some point Ridley Scott wanted to shoot this script, and it would be great to see it happening instead of Prometheus 2. Skip the Verhoeven footage and go directly to the starting point - the full-length novel about armoured troopers in the fight against insects.

Gregory wrote, "Apparently the Starship Troopers at US Marines Colleges are going to read the film. Heinlein had a vision of the futurist war and driven armament. "Marc added, "If you think it's fascistic, you've failed the purpose of the work. "This is going to be a whole new film, and let's just hopefully he's a little bit nearer to the game.
