What do you consider the best Sci-Fi planets?
This can be ones in literature, not just ones viewed on the big-screen. I came across an article here
that inspired me to start this topic. Also, I thought you'd all find the link interesting in itself.
Personally, my knowledge is fairly limited when it comes to Sci-Fi, as I've never took a deep interest in this. The Star Wars universe is the only world
(s) I'd be familiar with to comment on properly. Though, Dagobah is one of the top 10 listed on that site, and I'm familiar enough with some of the others, so...
Well, if I was to pick a world from SW alone, it wouldn't of been Dagobah. I mean, as the author of the article stated '(But) Dagobah sticks out for its organic messiness and claustrophobic atmosphere that stands in contrast to the typical open spaces that provide the large stages for the movies’ space opera', Dagobah was definitely something different. However, it's just not a favourite of mine. Perhaps it's this that makes it worthy of being one of the best? I'd probably like to think more of worlds like the beautiful world of Naboo, or the awe inspiring capital world that is Coruscant.
Of the others mentioned, I can't say Dune would be one of the better worlds, in my opinion. It's just as bad as SW's Tatooine, even if the world has been written in a very impressive way. Maybe I just can't get past that first glance, as the author mentioned. I'd favour, most of all, LV-426 out of all the others.
What's your opinion on the list? And do you have any planet suggestions of your own?
