As with everything, there is often a [[MohsScaleofSciFiHardness blend of Hard and Soft]] science fiction. It is perfectly possible to write a hard Science Fiction story about TheCaptain running around shooting people with miniaturized microwave emitters designed to incapacitate people without killing them, shooting aliens and having sex with {{Green Skinned Space Babe}}s (with no chance of conception because green aliens are biologically incompatible with humans), just as one can go into considerable detail justifying otherwise implausible technology that is [[ClarkesThirdLaw much like magic]] (usually accomplished by deliberately altering basic scientific laws) and its effects on scientific research. This can often lead to HiddenDepths.

Science Fiction authors and fans are [[BerserkButton notoriously cranky]] about [[SciFiGhetto how their work is not taken seriously by the literary community]], and especially resent being lumped in with [[{{Fantasy}} the fantasy genre.]] (SpeculativeFiction, an umbrella term for all varieties of imaginative literature, has an an analysis page that explains the [[Analysis/SpeculativeFiction differences between Fantasy and Science Fiction]].) Note also that many Science Fiction fans dislike the term SciFi: to them it suggests the [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] conception of the genre in popular culture, with green-skinned aliens, giant space battles and hammy production values. Therefore, [[InsistentTerminology they will insist on calling it]] [[SpellMyNameWithAnS SF]] for short.
