The expanse that is science fiction or fantasy movies does not escape the occasional love bite. This is a spice to the otherwise thrilling movies and it makes them even greater. There have been several wonder couples in the movies. But nothing beats a great catchy story in space where someone has to fight for air and love at the same instant!

  1. Han Solo and Leia from Star Wars

1.	Han Solo and Leia from Star wars

This couple has what is usually called the fairytale love story. They meet in missions where one is a hero and the other is a princes. They don’t actually fall in love immediately though. They hate each other for a while until they eventually realize they are in love. At this point they couple up to make a great couple.

  1. Aeryn Sun and John Crichton from Farscape


2.	Aeryn Sun and John Crichton from Farscape

 This couple is the ultimate badass story. The two are amazing kickass fighters who don’t even seem like they would bother with dating in real life.  John meets Aeryn on a mission where he is tortured and Aeryn is an alien. She saves his life numerous times and he saves hers a few times as well. This continues until they realize they are in love.


  1. Zoe and Wash from Firefly

3.	Zoe and Wash from Firefly

This is probably the most unlike coupling of all. Wash is a goofy simpleton husband to Zoë, a tough soldier. They work as a couple to go through several battles yet stay together through it all which is really the reason they are a favorite couple.


  1. Princess Buttercup and Westley from The Princess Bride

This is another story of fantasy and mystery. Princess buttercup and Westley barely speak nor do they know anything about each other. But they are madly in love all through the movie. Theirs is a fantasy world of love and nothing less.


  1. Paul Muad’dib and Chani from DunePaul Muad'dib and Chani from dune


Paul first meets Chani in his dreams. He sees her in later when they meet in reality and knows she is the one. They fall madly in love when she is appointed to guard him. Tragically though, Paul has to marry a princess and he ends up keeping Chani as a concubine.





  1. Captain Adama and Laura Roslin from Battlestar Galactica

6.	Captain Adama and Laura Roslin from Battlestar Galactica

The starbuck storyline has been a favorite for a long while now. This couple was an exciting prospect for almost everyone who followed the storyline over the whole series. They are captain and president and with all the tension that is politics and war, they still find time for love.


  1. Buffy and Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

7.	Buffy and spike from buffy the vampire slayer


A love story between vampires is probably one of the greatest stories of all time. Buffy and spike are probably the best looking couple in the science fiction genre and they succeed at being a great couple. Their relationship is riddled with a lot of issues from the young onset and they face numerous challenges but they still manage to pull through much to our amusement.

We have one extra couple for you that have a really special place in our heart! Wall-e and Eve!
