Mars features in Babylon 5, a creature or force known as 'The Shadows' retreated into hibernation, though not before burying many of their ships and supplies on hundreds of barren unpopulated worlds including Mars and Ganymede where they would be safe and easy to quietly retrieve when the time was again right for another war.

Re: Favorite Sci-Fi Movie? - Blade Runner for me. . .

I feel there is Not much scifi on tv worth watching

However there is a media creator that links to the National Space Society guy, the name Isaac Arthur has show up in newmars discussion of Exoplanets, Cyberpunk Dystopia or StarTrek Utopia. His links might pop up in Futurist and Futurologist Space concepts and scifi ideas. I think he has a background in biophysics and may be involved in politics, he has worked with astrophysics guys and he discusses many fringe ideas about the future of exploration and he has thousands of online followers. Perhaps you could call him a content creator, every week there will be a new video about 30 + mins long.

Scott Manley, Anton Petrov are similar channels but closer to the science, PBS Spacetime does videos also and Kurtzgazat does philosophy and entertainment, 'Physics Girl' Dianna Leilani Cowern used to be active she has many old videos but seems to have developed long-term health problems after 'Covid'
