Well that's a pretty big list! I really had no idea there were that many. Looking at it, I think what I aim for is actually a blend of 3-4 of those.

Would there be a comedic genre too ?


Just Googled it, Comic sci-fi.
Though I think that would be an aspect of any sub-genre if the writer chooses to include it in whatever they are writing.

There is the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy type sci-fi.

That would be a superb example of comic science fiction

I guess the Family Guy/Star Wars episodes are technically comic sci-fi. Prometheus would be "poorly written" sci-fi.

I have 2 ideas for sci-fi novels in mind, one more fleshed out than the other. One would be pretty conventional spaceship-stuff and one a kind of mystery/horror on an alien planet, featuring a mysterious disease. But my executive dysfunction keeps me from actually writing anything down. :(
