Honestly, almost none because most stories have wars or world endings or post apocalyptic worlds. Yeah, they’re cool, but I would rather be in the Pokémon world, or The sims. The sims seems to be the most chill and peacefull one.

Same, I don’t even need to be on a starship, just some lowly scientist on a relatively peaceful planet or research station.

The Culture, space communism that makes Star Trek look like backwater barbarians

Culture is even more space communist than Star Trek? Cool, now I have to check it out!

This one isn’t a fictional universe? Are you sure about that?

If it is, the writing is terrible.

Would have to be either Nanotech Succession or Culture for me.

Doraemon

Pokemon

At a young age, you have to force yourselves out of the house, travel the entire region, catch and fight pokemon. So fun!

Star Trek, by far. Gimmie that space communism!

Runners up include the universe of the Ori games, and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon (not so much regular Pokemon tho).

One where you can learn magic I think. Becoming a bender in avatar would be cool.

You have to be born with it

I’m torn between star trek, and star wars. On one hand, it’d be wonderful to be an engineering officer on a starship, just flying around the beta quadrant. But, on the other hand, being an arms smuggler under the nose of the republic would be neat too.

It might sound weird, but I have my own fictional universe, and I get to experience it randomly every few years while sleeping. I call it the meta dream, it’s basically the addition of all the characters, situations, and stories of all my previous dreams. As you can imagine it’s really dense, but without being confusing since I already know all its details. I usually wake up from it exhausted but really happy, like if I’ve just read the best book ever written.

That doesn’t sound weird. It sounds wicked cool! So it’s basically a lucid dream but with continuity between dreams?

Yes, I guess. It’s not continuity like the one you can have from one dreaming session to the next time you get asleep, but more like everything dreamed before, interwoven in the same place and time, but making sense?

Same case as Fakefunk, I have my own fictional world set in the year 2500. I don’t really care about how the world is doing, but there’s this small, human-made island operated by sentient machines that is what i call a “utopia in the works”. They’re trying to make a utopia, but they’re not quite there yet. One thing I do know about this world is that “zero world countries” are now a thing, that is, countries that reach post-scarcity. The island this worldbuilding is focused on is one of those.

My friends have called them the intersection of transhumanism and buddhism, and solarpunk with a cyberpunk aesthetic

Okay, if I knew that was allowed, I’d have picked my own worldbuilding too! I want to be an intelligent fuzzy animal who drives a spaceship damnit!

Totally agree with Star Trek. Next runner up would be Middle Earth.

Warhammer40k. For the emperor!
