Space Opera Vs!

Here is a cool little thing I like to do... Get a genre. Find the main TV series and Films in that genre and add up all their scores and compare....

Where do I get the scores? of course. So all of the numbers below that have a year beside them are from IMDB. The first box is my total averages... enjoy!

(Space opera is a subgenre of science fiction that emphasizes space warfare, melodramatic adventure, interplanetary battles, as well as chivalric romance, and often risk-taking.)

Star Trek7.267
Star Wars7.825
Star Gate7.771
Battlestar Galactica7.660
Babylon 56.988

Firefly Wins Of course....

The OBVIOUS winner here is Firefly with  8.5/10. I was wondering if I should have added in Starship Troopers? What do you think? I have added Andromeda as an "also ran". But when I was looking into Andromeda I was surprised how many of its cast would turn up in other Space Opera.
