    The best sci-fi stories are the ones that break new ground and take hold of the reader's imagination because they go down a path that hasn't been well-worn by a dozen other writers.

    Stuff that has been done to death:

    Exploring the universe in a faster than light ship.

    Time travel / Alternate histories / Parallel worlds.

    Robots / Artificial intelligence.

    Cloning / Genetic engineering / Mutants.

    Lab experiments going horribly awry.

    Alien invasion / End of the World.

    Super powers.

    Telepathy / Telekenesis / Mind control

    Invisibility.

    I'm not saying it's impossible to come up with some interesting new take on an old theme.

    But you really need to be clever and witty about it.
