If this is any "good" - and, from the summary, it sounds like it might possibly be - it has also a real chance of trumping Wiki, E2, YT, or tvtropes effects... (hence "")

Look at the site. It's not really good. Aside from lots of links, it looks like something that any nerd could do in one day off the top of his head.

For instance, have a look at the character list at http://sf-encyclopedia.com/category/media/character#articlesP [sf-encyclopedia.com] . No Star Trek, but entrances on Sherlock Holmes and Nick Carter? Or compare the entry on Daleks here ( http://sf-encyclopedia.com/entry/daleks [sf-encyclopedia.com] ) to Wikipedia's ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dalek [wikipedia.org] ) or a specialized Dr. Who wiki ( http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/Dalek [wikia.com] )
