Best sci-fi games - an IFDB Poll

I'm looking for games from the sci-fi genre. I would prefer classic-style games, even if they're not classics (such as 'Across The Stars') because one of my all-time favorites is Planetfall, but really, anything goes.

Ant-Fan says: I enjoyed this game. I always get stuck in the same part, but it's still a fantastic game. It really takes IF to a whole new level!

"Science fiction espionage" [+]...

Ant-Fan says: I've played Spider and Web. It's a great game and I see where you're coming from, but it doesn't really have too much of a sci-fi feel. It's more like James Bond than sci-fi. However, there's no denying that this is a great game.
