Where every science fiction story went wrong

Well, most of them anyways.  OK, specifically only those of the militaristic variety.  Boeing just announced its new unmanned jet figher titled the Phantom Ray.

The full press release from Boeing can be found here.

Most science fiction I have read (and watched) always had manned fighters, whether in the realm of space, air, sea or land.  Why didn’t they think of this? Most likely because the story would lose its emotional, character driven element.

There is one science fiction story that reigns as the greatest of them all. (#1 in this list)  Before you click the link, do you know what it is?

Yep, Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card.  I don’t want to spoil anything if you haven’t read the book but Mr. Card’s science fiction story is the greatest of all time for a reason; he was the most accurate when it came to predicting our military future.
