Are they really so different?

I have noticed many parallels between science-fiction and fantasy/ horror.  Some have been brought to my attention, others I noticed myself.  I will list some in a table format.

SCIENCE-FICTION                                             FANTASY/ HORROR

The Borg (Star Trek universe)                        Zombies

Animalistic Mutants and Aliens                    Were-wolves (and other were-beasts)

Psionics (untapped mental abilities)            Magic

Energy Beings (aliens)                                     Ghosts/ Poltergeists/ Spirits

Elder Races (aliens)                                          Gods

Robots                                                                Golems


I am sure there are many others, but these are the ones I could think of off the top of my head.

The End
