Here at SolarWinds we live for an old-fashioned hypothetical grudge match, and we know we’re not alone. In fact, we’re thinking it’s time for the definitive battle of sci-fi characters! We’ve been waiting a while for this one, my friends.

 

Whether it’s at happy hour, in the server room, or on Reddit, we’ve been fighting over Picard v. Kirk and Wars v. Trek for more years than Worf has forehead creases. Well, we are done with all the chit chat… It’s time to put our Imperial Credits where our mouths are and crown an official king OR queen in …


The SolarWinds Sci-Fi Bracket Battle!

 

On March 8th, here at thwack.com, it’s about to get REAL. We will launch a bracket-based, “March Madness”-style competition that will feature 33 science-fiction titans from our favorite TV shows, books, and movies. Competitors will pit their champion against another, and all of us will vote to determine each round’s winner. Using only the power of our minds, we’ll carry our heroes to victory! We’re ready to flaunt our sci-fi knowledge … are you?

 

Do NOT miss the chance to …

 

Set up a cage fight with Darth Maul 
Show that limey chrome dome who’s … got … whatittakes …

Tell the world that Number Six is more than just a pretty face…

Give The Doctor his due…

 

Soon, a dark horse of fandom will rise and blow our minds with an impassioned defense of one hero’s obvious superiority. The whole Internet is waiting with bated breath!

 

The official bracket and rules of engagement will be released on March 8th.  And, as a bonus we have a prequel round of voting, leading into the official first round next week.

 

Trust us, go ahead and set your galactic alarm clock for March 8th.

 

You wouldn’t want to miss your opportunity to, oh, you know, dominate the competition world, now would you?

 

We didn’t think so.

 

...more rumblings of the rumble... and a few rules...

 

Oh, and fill out your bracket and post it, don't be shy.
