Okay, I have a question. To me, Star Wars has always embodied the quintessential science fiction movie: robots, space battles, laser swords, ray guns, blasters, aliens, the list goes on. But, many Star Wars fans say it is a "space opera", which I don't really get. What is a space opera, and what makes it different from conventional science fiction like Star Trek? And what qualities does Star Wars display that makes it a space opera and not simply one of the greatest science fiction franchises ever created?
