From what I can tell, our site is not available for searching through the Data Explorer.

Why is this and what can we do to help get it there?

If I understand correctly only sites out of beta are included, and the export only happens monthly (for data explorer – downloadable export is less frequent).

With this site newly out of beta, there may not have been an export yet.

    But this site came out of beta on Dec 13, and the data explorer was updated on Dec 21–22.

As I think, Stack Exchange doesn't assume this QnA site as useful real-world knowledge resource.
Forums were introduced because books & knowledge websites present ideal situation. But, in real world, we face real-world problems. The advantage of a QnA site over a forum is that finding answer for a particular question is fast. Nobody needs to dig too deep inside a thread. Build on this concept, Stack Overflow became successful in past. All other QnA sites in Stack Exchange network are build around this concept: To help professionals (or, anyone) find solution of real-world problems quickly.
Science Fiction & Fantasy is meant only for virtual world based entertainment. So, Stack Exchange has excluded it from Data Explorer.
