Query for Sept 1st:

(A follow-on to the Aug 27 question, that mostly wound up being about spacecraft:) If forced to leave Earth forever…What Planet from Star Trek or Wars, or another SciFy realm, would you choose for your new home-world? (And why?)

 

I'm thinking Paraiso-Aqui from Harrison's The Stainless Steel Rat For President. It's basically Cuba on a planet wide scale with lots of rum. And once old Slippery Jim cleaned up the government it sounds like a great place to be.

Hmmm, that's a toughie. Most of the places I'd pick would be aboard spacecraft.....

 

Hoth seemed nice. Summers not too hot, no mowing to do. Quiet. No neighbours.  Abundant supplies of AT-AT parts.....

 

Pern comes to mind. Sure, deadly stuff falling from the sky every so often (they may have fixed that in later books....it's been a long time and there are a ton more books it seems) but telepathic dragons who can teleport.....

I will leave Earth and decide to populate Terra instead. :devil:

Manticore because no one else has chosen this planet.

Yavin-4.

Temperate climate, jungles/forest terrain, not too far from everything, but far enough away from everything, not a whole lot of neighbors.

I have always been intrigued by Sesharrim from Titan A.E.

After careful consideration of several other candidates in several sci-fi franchises, I've determined the only safe and logical planet is @Glitterwolf's choice - Risa. 

All of the other planets I considered, such as Lantea in the Pegasus Galaxy (SG: Atlantis) wind up facing deadly life forms and/or epic catastrophes. 

 

I have bad news for you...

Well crap. 

Are there no nice planets in Sci-Fi that don't eventually face catastrophe? 

 

I think that tiny planet in Rick & Morty (a family) had to go live on,  didn't blow up............:lol:

This is a tough one.

 

Beta Colony, I guess?
