Equinox fandom nominations are rolling along! Nominations will close at 7:00AM UTC on Saturday, February 4th, with sign ups opening later that day. We're approving nominations as they come in to help generate public lists of what's already been nominated, and you can see those on the tag set pages: safety fandoms -; longer fandoms - 

We have two fandoms that we're debating eligibility on. Whether or not you're the original nominator, feel free to weigh in: 

- Cosmos (1980) : The rule is that the bulk of the material has to be set in space, and believe it or not, Carl Sagan's Cosmos doesn't quite qualify, but given the overall theme of space discovery that ties much of the connecting material back, this one is on the fence.

- Earth: Final Conflict : Moderator memories of this show are dim, so can the original nominator or others with solid memories of the show please clarify - does the bulk of the material take place in space? If it takes place primarily on Earth (and the amount of material in space isn't fairly significant), it won't qualify.

If you have any questions about the rules for nominating fandoms, the way our tag sets will work, or anything else, you can comment here or email

With the caveat that I haven't watched it in a long time, I'd vote yes for Cosmos because it's all about space and space exploration, even though it's necessarily Earth-based. Same reason I'd vote yes for other nonfiction & RPF (RPV?) sources that are about taking real humans to space. The passion for exploring the solar system and beyond is there that I imagine the Equinox theme intends to celebrate. Plus, what is the likelihood Cosmos & similar sources would be eligible in another Equinox round?

(I'm basing my thoughts on the original description that "Sources that base most of their material on Earth but are premised in large part on space exploration" would be considered case by case.)

Doesn't Sagan spend a bunch of narrative time in a dandelion-fluff spaceship?

Yeah, but I couldn't remember what proportion of the show included that sort of thing. No matter - it seems Cosmos is in!

Neat! I'm sure the nominator is very happy!

EFC nominator here--you're right, upon reviewing the canon, I don't think it fits the requirements because it's too much planetbound stuff. Alas! Next time.
