Burnside's Zeroth Law of space combat
Fiction is about people, because the audience is made out of people.
As per http://www.projectrho.com/public_html/rocket/prelimnotes.php Most people instinctively know Burnside's Zeroth Law of space combat: Science fiction fans relate more to human beings than to silicon chips. That is, while it might make more logical sense to have an interplanetary battle waged between groups of computer controlled spacecraft, it would be infinitely more boring than a battle between groups of human crewed spacecraft.
