Defining Military science fiction can be tricky- it's a sub-genre of sci-fi that features a protagonist -who's normally part of the chain of command, and is directly involved in some kind of war or military situation- where there is a clear difference between a military lifestyle, and one of that from a civilian perspective. Which leads me towards the opinion, that the best military sci-fi aren't necessarily the ones with the most space battles and armed combat, although those are always fun to watch. So today I thought I would make a video -focusing on Military science fiction in all shapes and forms.
