So here I am, gathering information on Science Fiction. I'll ask some questions, so please answer them! What's better: The story taking place in an invented System or in the Solar System (invented Galaxy or Milky Way applies to)? It is okay to have invented Galaxies/Systems where Humans exist? I mean, we are from Planet Earth, not a Galaxy far, far away. What method do you use to invent alien species and more importantly, name them? What do you think better: For a story to take place in many planets with space-faring ships and that stuff or that all the story takes places on a planet, with flying ships that look like space-ships? This is my first time trying to make a Sci-Fi story, and I don't know much about it, so if someone is good enough to help I'll be glad to call you my sci-fi teacher!
