There have been some big steps into the Sci-fi world lately; a world I really love and enjoy pretty much no matter what. This has got me thinking (dangerous I know) about some of my favorite sci-fi universes from the past. Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Star Trek, Masters of Orion, Firefly, and countless others have haunted my imagination for decades; constantly popping up with another wistful daydream of warp drive and the possibilities it might entail. There is one sci-fi property that was a more recent addition to my mental dreamscape; I’m talking about Mass Effect. I was late to this party (didn’t get an X-Box for a while so I was out of the loop for the first one and just didn’t bother with the second when it hit PS3) but have completely enjoyed everything about it I’ve come across (yeah I even liked the ending to 3 so there). While I still wait for the promised DLC to “finish” the story I’ve been musing about what it is exactly that I enjoyed so much.
