It's not on the list; worlds I like to live in are Serial Experiments Lain and Haibane Renmei.

With only a few to pick from that I recognize, it would be Star Trek all the way. You're pretty much guaranteed to live a long life and not get killed, unless you happen to be some unnamed ensign who wears the signature "I will die soon" red shirt uniform. Those guys, usually from the Security Division, get thrown to the aliens routinely. So I'd want to go in as a yellow shirt command officer.

Is there any world not on the list you would like to live?

A fun topic! grin I'm a geek but even I am not familiar with all of those worlds. Many of them are from my favorite games and films. But many of them would be brutal and unpleasant places to live out your short life! Resident Evil is awesome but depending on the source/time it could be a horrible existence followed by a horrible death! The world of LotR would be potentially awesome with magic and elves but again, it would depend on what point on the timeline you occupied. The Star Wars universe would be pretty cool with tech bordering on magic and possibly learning to use the Force. And did I mention lightsabers? Yay, lightsabers! grin But very few folks are Jedi or can use the Force, so my odds of getting my own purple 'saber might be slim.

Of those listed I would choose Star Trek, especially if it's Star Trek-TNG! To me that is a utopian paradise, about the best future we could even fantasize about! Poverty, want and inequality no longer exist and money seems to have become obsolete. There are still a few diseases that they can't seem to cure but for the most part medical technology borders on magic and people live long healthy lives. Not only did SETI bear fruit but it bore and entire Federation comprising dozens if not hundreds of alien species and worlds. And of course...warp travel! We've slipped the bonds of normal physics and learned to travel fast enough to travel to the stars effortlessly.

For me Star Trek embodies all the hopes and dreams of mankind, so that's my choice!

Second the motion! Any universe that contains Marina Sirtis (Counselor Troy) has got to be wonderful.

Side note: I may be the only here who shares a name with a medical ship, the USS Jeannette Isabelle (NCC-6199).

I loved Lexx but I'm not sure I'd want to live there. Unless my time was spent with a certain cluster-lizard/love-slave! grin
