This is a good idea, but I'd have preferred it if the tag had been called "SF" (or "sci-fi"). After all, space travel is logically a subset of SF, and if one uses the "space" tag on an SF story that doesn't feature space travel those searching on the tag are liable to be disappointed with the episodes that their search comes up with.

On a related topic, would a UNA tag be worthwhile?

The reason I specified space travel rather than sci-fi is that a large range of things can fall under sci-fi.  Time Travel, alternate histories, cloning, mind control, alien invasions, mad science (BE Ray Guns and the like)...

Most of that stuff is covered by other tags; I wanted something more obviously "science fiction".

Similarly, the "fantasy" tag is specifically for episodes taking place in a fantasy world, rather than the broader definition of fantasy which includes magic wands, boob fairies, witches, magical transformations, etc...

I guess both tags are about things that take place away from Earth.

Eh, not really, that's a specific setting and I've avoided making tags that specific.  I suppose I could make a "conspiracy" tag or "secret society" tag or "multiverse" tag but it doesn't seem worth it.

I suppose that seems contradicted by having a "ubea" tag, since that's a setting too.  But it's special.

OK, that all makes sense.

I've been using the "space" tag for anything space-related, not just space travel.  So, I've used it for episodes taking place on other planets, and also for episodes featuring aliens as characters.

I would use it that way too.
