    Okay. I've been sitting here, twiddling my thumbs to the point of nearly developing carpal tunnel syndrome, trying to come up with a thread subject for polls. This is what I came up with: of the many alien planets depicted on film over the years, which one would you most like to live on? I'm still mulling over this myself, so I'll give my answer later on.

    I'll choose Gallifrey, but only stay there long enough to steal a TARDIS. Then I could go everywhere [​IMG]

    Coruscant (in Star Wars). I've always enjoyed the diversity that cities offer and the hustle-bustle, so a planet that is a city seems like it would be a lot of fun.

    As for the bad rap about the characters--hey, I've seen space operas that put their emphasis on human personalities and relationships. They're called "Star Trek" movies. Give me transparent underwater cities and vast hollow senatorial spheres any day. --Roger Ebert on The Phantom Menace

    Mine is not from a movie so I'm not sure if this really counts, but I would have to go with the planet from the ST:TNG episode Justice. It was the one with the Edo. The women were all young, healthy, and beautiful just filled with sensuality. I could live there easily. It didn't hurt that they were half dressed either. [​IMG]

    I agree with Corascant. With all those buildings everywhere, there is sure to be a Pizza Hut anywhere I go on the planet.

    Always had a hankering to ride a sandworm and indulge in melange so my eyes will turn completely blue, so I'll say Arakis.

    Princess Aura's pleasure moon whatever it was called, from Flash Gordon, or was I dreaming it? I can't remember, mmmmm Princess Aura. [​IMG]
    Coruscant looked fantastic in Episode I, I would love to visit that.
    A bit of trivia: Isaac Asimov's Foundation novels featured a 'city-planet', Trantor, many years before Star Wars was created. [​IMG]

    Edo was a good choice, also Risa, the tropical paradise vacation planet. [​IMG]
    How about the "fountain of youth" planet in Star Trek:Insurrection... I forget its name. I could stand to be a bit younger again. [​IMG]
