When the scientific basis of ScienceFiction drops, it descends to TechnoFantasy. If you drop the difficult explanations of how you got to from Earth to Alpha Centauri in 2 days and just say faster than light travel exists, you've entered TechnoFantasy. It contrasts the CloseExtrapolation of much CyberPunk, where the world they created happened last year. This contrasts with SoftScience? Fiction, where the speculation is based on the soft sciences such as Psychology, Sociology and the like and the issues of HardScienceFiction fan might find interesting (spaceship design, xenobiology, faster than light travel). Actually, TechnoFantasy is much like Space Opera and SciFi, critical terms used to deride the work.
