What makes a scifi setting stand out among other scifi settings to you? Are there certain elements of the setting you find fun to play with, or fascinating to explore? Share them! I like "space journey" type scifi settings; it's the trekkie in me! I love being able to make up lots of different planets, aliens, cultures and technologies as the story grows, so moving settings are really appealing in a setting where there's lots of accessible unknowns. If not in a spaceship, then through time travel, dimension hopping, or some other way!
