Science fiction’s purpose, quantified:

7%: Boobs with guns on spaceships
Crunch the numbers, Hollywood. Put Donald Glover on it.
*Including dystopias, as the negative space of a better world we could build if we considered the consequences of our current shenanigans. Like putting only white people in space.
