What is Speculative Fiction?
Speculative fiction is a blanket term that relates to several different subgenres of fictional media. In layman’s terms, stories set within the speculative fiction genre take place in a setting where the accepted laws that govern its internal reality are radically different from that of the real world. This includes material that may reflect an individual's spiritual and/or religious beliefs. Speculative fiction may be broken down into several key subgenres, the most noted of which is science fiction, which itself can be sub-categorized into any number of different mini-genres. Other forms of speculative fiction include stories with elements of horror, stories with elements of fantasy, superhero fiction, alternative history and any combinations thereof.

The Sardor is a fictional alien character featured in the CBS superhero fantasy television series The New Adventures of Wonder Woman. He was one of the primary antagonists from the season two two-part episode, "Mind Stealers from Outer Space". It is unclear exactly who played the role of the Sardor, as the character went uncredited in both episodes. It is possible that he was played by stunt coordinator Paul Baxley, who is the only male stunt performer credited in the episode.
The Sardor was an alien creature of unknown origin. As Sardor has been used as a title rather than a proper name, it is possible that this was also the name of the creature's race. He was used as muscle by another alien race known as the Skrill.
