Only sci-fi show to acknowledge no sound in space: Babylon 5.

How about 2001 Space Odyssey? Solitary

Good one.  They even made the rush of air into the airlock get louder as the pressure increased.

There's a scene in the opening fight of the 2009 Star Trek movie where someone gets pulled out into space through a breach in the hull and everything goes silent.  Although, right before that the weapons that cause that hole do make sound travelling through space.  There's only so much one can expect from Hollywood.

The trend these days seems to be muted sounds during space fights. Battlestar Galactica is a pretty good example of this.
And on the wings of a dream so far beyond reality
All alone in desperation now the time has come
Lost inside you\'ll never find, lost within my own mind
Day after day this misery must go on

I think Battlestar Galactica (the remake)  had it about right.  You heard guns go off and missiles launch, but you didn't hear the flak explosions or the missiles travel.

I think they had it about right in terms of space battles too.   Battle groups had to be practically on top of each other and close combat was the order of the day.

"Is there sound in space?"

Technically yes, since planets fly around in space and there is sound in their atmospheres.

Is there blood in the water? Yes, because there's blood in you and you're swimming in it.

If you tell people there's blood in the water, are you communicating effectively? No.

I suppose if a tree falls in a forest and nobody is there to hear it it still makes a sound. Is this what you're trying to say? I've been in forests where trees fall and they fall silently. Of course they fell before I got there so I'm not 100% positive they make no sound, but they sure didn't seem to complain much when I was there.
All hail my new signature!

Admit it. You're secretly green with envy.

I thought it was clear enough that I wasn't being entirely serious here. :lol:
