Military SF is a constantly evolving genre because the tools of war change. Battlefield technology, autonomous weapons, small-scale printable autonomous weapons, off-the-shelf mods (use of small drones by ISIS for example), so-called “centaurs” (human/machine teaming). With the rise of private military companies,  and the ability of the extremely wealthy to purchase private armies it often feels like the real world is coming closer to SF. At the same time, the core of military SF is the sense of a team, which has not changed since swords. Our panelists talk about the intersection of technology, fiction and military culture.
