the vast majority of sci-fi out there I consider complete crap

It was Theodore Sturgeon, I think, who said: "Ninety percent of science fiction is crud. That's because 90 percent of eveything is crud."

Also, hard core science fiction fans distinguish between ersatz "sci-fi" (of the Star Trek, Star Wars variety) and "real" SF. The term "sci-fi" is considered a pejorative.
