I Like Data Dumps in Science Fiction
We read science fiction for speculative ideas. This is probably true for most fans of the genre. I like the data dumps. I like the future histories and the descriptions of alien biology and explicative monologs of technology. For most science fiction, passages involving interactions between characters or the background of the protagonist is like plot in porn.
