Gallifrey Base

http://gallifreybase.com/forum/

About the site: Gallifrey Base grew out the of Outpost Gallifrey forum, and has continued to be the number one site on the net for Doctor Who discussion. Comprehensive in scope, with a vociferous and opinionated userbase, it has also become a site that breaks news stories – thanks to the detective work of some of its more tenacious members – as well as remarking on them. In fact, a site so sure of its own status within the fan community it hasn’t even got an “about us” section.

The Trek BBS

How they describe themselves: “The Trek BBS is the number one place to chat about Star Trek with like-minded fans. Login to see our full range of forums as well as the ability to send and receive private messages, track your favourite topics and of course join in the discussions.” And we love the fact they still have BBS in the title. It’s like the Radio Times.

GateWorld

http://www.gateworld.net/index.shtml

How they describe themselves: “From its humble beginnings GateWorld has grown into one of the web’s largest and most popular Stargate sites. While the episode guide remains the core of the site, we have expanded to news, an encyclopaedia of the Stargate universe, licensed products like books and comics, interviews, editorials, episode transcripts and photo galleries, fan fiction, and much more. And we’ve got some great new ideas for the future! The site remains independently owned and operated, thanks to generous support from fans.”
