    First, choose a sub-genre of sci-fi: hard sci-fi, soft and social sf, cyberpunk, time travel, alternate history, military sf, superhuman, apocalyptic, space opera, space western, feminist sf, new wave, comic sf, or steampunk.

    Depending on which you choose decides your setting for your story. But the protagonist (main character, usually good) and antagonist (opposite of the main character, usually wants to stop him/her fro succeeding in their mission) should be pre-decided.

    Character's goals in life:

    Although it's not a book, you still need to have clear view of who the character is going to be. Even though you probably already know this, developing your main character helps with deciding what the story is going to be about.

    Ideas...I guess you could always do the classic space travel like in Ender's Game or you can try the secret agent facility angle that everyone thought didn't exist (Area 51). If you don't want something over the top, you can always try having the main character a normal kid that is thrown into the world of sci-fi. Cyberpunk is always a fun one to do. It take place in the near future. The setting involves robotics and the setting is usually distopian. Or you can try time traveling like Back to the Future. Or you can try an impending alien attack and only one kid can stop it from happening. It really depends on what you prefer.

    Something within the description like, "Gremlins within the town." "A research long past incorrect." "Those are not any chickens." (lol.) "A technological know-how mistake." "Science long past incorrect." "A therapy, turns in to crisis." Stuff alongside the ones traces. Good good fortune!
