Welcome to the golden age of science fiction television. Never before have so many, and so many truly excellent, shows of the fantastic appeard on the airwaves.
As this book is assembled, U.S. science fiction fans can watch Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Babylon 5 (soon to lead into Crusade), Stargate SG-1, The Outer Limits, Sliders, and Gene Roddenberry's Earth: Final Conflict. Fantasy fans have Xena, Hercules, The Adventures of Sinbad and Conan the Adventurer. And Horror fans get The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Poltergeist: The Legacy, and Profiler. Do you like comedy? Try Sabrina the Teenage Witch or 3rd Rock from the Sun. Superheros? Nightman. Kid's shows? Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.
And that's just in the U.S. Abroad, we have Red Dwarf, Lexx (U.S. title: Tales from a Parallel Universe), Neverwhere, and so many more, most of which will eventually make their way here. With the continued growth of mini-dish satellite TV, and the increasing efficiency of cable television, we have more channels than ever before.
In fact, it was the explosion of a genre that gave birth to a whole new television outlet: Sci-fi Channel. Now seen in 50 million homes around the globe, the channel is the world's leader in the realm of imaginative television.
This book incorporates and expands on Roger Fulton's excellent The Encyclopedia of TV Science Fiction, which appeared in England to great acclaim. Hopefully we can continue to update this encyclopedia as the flood of new science fiction programming continues. The astute reader will note that this book covers through roughly the first half of 1998 - as far into each series as we were able to complete as of press time.
