Alien

Star Wars might have been improved if they actually sang opera.

I added Starship TroopersSerenityGuardians of the Galaxy.

I'm gonna wait to add Galaxy Quest, that doesn't mean that I totally reject it, but it is a spoof of Star Trek, and I want to prioritize original movies.

I don't know, if you would count Prometheus to the Alien-Franchise. ;)

I added Avatar and Starship Troopers.

I never had the impression that Independence Day was a space opera, almost all the story happens on earth.

Prometheus is part of the Alien Saga since Alien: Covenant.

Are you including animations?

In that case Titan A.E. and Cowboy Bebop fit the parameters.

Also The Last Starfighter
