How would you "sum up" Starfinder?

I generally run most of our campaigns but leave the choice of game system and adventure to my players. That said, I'd really like to give starfinder a shot (our history with science fictiony games is pretty poor).

Consequently, I'm looking for a one-paragraph summation of Starfinder - themes, genre, whatever...that I'm hoping will inspire them to choose this for an upcoming campaign. Is there an "evevator pitch" summary somewhere? A broad-strokes description of what the game is going be like?

No. Look at the announcement blog. That's pretty much what we all know.

Do you mean something like this?


ELLLLLLLLLLVES IIIIIIIIIIIIIN SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!!!!!!


...Although I think it's important to remember that they're (probably) going to various planets - it's not space stations and starships all the time. XD

Starships and androids
and ratfolk with lasers,
zero g gunfights
(but not trademarked phasers),
deep space horror beasties
on gossamer wings,
these are a few of the Starfinder things...

When the engines fail,
when the radar pings,
when I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember these Starfinder things
and then I don't feel so bad!

Alien foreheads
all furrowed and ragey,
xenodrug smugglers
so shifty and cagey,
theremin orchestras
lacking all strings,
these are a few of the Starfinder things...

When the vacuum sucks,
when the mi-go stings,
when I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember these Starfinder things
and then I don't feel so bad!

There's a good chance that will do it. Thanks. :)

There's a star man waiting in the sky, he'd like to come and see us but he think he'd blow our minds.

Did I say star man? I meant eldritch horror from Aucturn who knows he'll blow our minds, and simply doesn't care.


A moonage daydream, then?
