11 Things We Can Expect in the Future According to Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

Science fiction has always brought us interesting views of our potential future. Some of them are compelling and hopeful, like Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future in Star Trek. Others are dark and foreboding like Space: Above and Beyond. Then there are series that seem to combine the two like Babylon 5 or Earth: Final Conflict.
