Look at UOFSF as a huge canvas on which you can paint your sci-fi fantasies.
UniverseOfSciFi.com is a grass-roots, crowd-sourced science fiction portal created for all who love the science fiction genre.
If you're a sculptor, writer, film maker, reviewer, model builder, costume designer, cosplayer or artist we want you to make this your home. A place where you can show off your talents and skills. A place where you can collaborate and coexist. A place where you can explore the possibilities of the sci-fi universe! [insert maniacal laughter here]
Let us share a little fantasy of our own with you...
Gilbert had finsihed his semi-comedic short story about the small colony of humans escaping the reaches of the dying local system on their way to planets discovered near Proxima Centauri hundreds of years ago. This brilliant little slice-of-life story was posted to UOFSF.com and gained popularity quickly.
As a matter of fact, about a week after posting, a model builder, Tim, posts pictures of his latest scratch-building effort - a very detailed model of the Harkener; the ship featured in Gilbert's story. Other artists and designers join forces to flesh out Gilbert's story. Soon there are costumes for the travelers, artist renditions of the ship and Arduino-based emulators of the electronic equipment. A fan-film mey be in the making!
Pretty cool, huh?
Perhaps you're a costume designer and really into cosplay. You can share your gallery with the world....uh, er....universe! Want to be a critical reviewer of sci-fi books, television and movies? Write on! Model maker? Show 'em if you build 'em!
UOFSF will let you choose the level of interaction you want. Want people to comment on your work? You can do that. Want to enable ratings? You'll be able to do that too. More features are planned (they'll be added quickly) and suggestions are truly welcome.
