SciFi Tropes

As I am finishing up my book I am reading others. I have run straight into a ton of classic Scifi tropes. I will never include and of these in my fiction:
  • Brilliant 16 year old kid that is as smart as the chief engineer.
  • Beautiful, young cold woman PHD scientist, that burns with hidden passion.
  • Cadets, fresh out of the academy on a shake down cruise become command crew.
  • Aliens that speak English but don't know of Earth. 
  • A human female pregnant with an alien life form.
  • Ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.
  • Goat-tee beards mean that you are evil. 
  • Sounds in the vacuum of space.
  • Visible LASER beams in outer space. 
--This list will grow.
