Biome could be a less overused alternative.
Or Orbitron (but please don’t tell Hrant I said it ;-)

Nick, Eurosile? Is that not the Trajan of Sci-Fi? :o)

Ricardo - Orbitron is a good option.

Yeah, I like Kubrick, but it's not the one. (Nice work on your site, David.)

Definitely Countdown, as featured in the title sequence of "Space 1999" (a future of the past that's already more than a decade ago...)

Few faces are more science-fiction-y than Amelia, though.
