The broad variation of the parent genres allow for a multitude of ways this can play out: scientific advancements being used for evil ends or creating new, dangerous lifeforms; man's hubris leading to horrific consequences because of our reliance on technology; alien monsters menacing the characters; or the vast loneliness of outer space being a source of ontological dread, branching into Cosmic Horror Story and Space Isolation Horror.
