The only thing I want from sci-fi is cute ideas. If the ideas are cute enough I don't care if the sets wobble. Galactic war against a race of robots is not a cute idea.
Since the enemy are soulless robots we can kill 'em guiltlessly. They have no civilians. Ain't it great to be a soldier!
Honour, self-sacrifice, beautiful bodies.
Blood and iron.
OK it's just a TV programme but.....
