Yes, it's on-topic, as the spy-fi subset of sci-fi has never been officially off-topic.
- James Bond? - Yes
- Nolanverse Batman? - Yes
- Works you can make a good case for? - Yes
Please note that #3 was always our policy, but Spy-Fi was policed outside of policy through comments, but never truly justified through our meta decisions.
This question sort of got lost in the recent discussions, as both the James Bond and Nolanverse decisions have come after this question and existing top answer.
Our policy is designed to be inclusive, I'm not really making any new declarations here. I just wanted to call out that the current top answer is essentially at odds with all of our other discussions on the subject.
Also worth noting regarding spy-fi in general:
Do we have to ask if all these works are on-topic or not?
These are not cases where people are arguing over classes of work -- spy-fi, horror, anthropomorphic animals, etc. They are, to be brutally honest, cases where people just decide for themselves that they don't like the scope rules and try to end-run around them by coming to meta.
Again, in theory, that's what meta is for -- if we're going to change the rules, here's where we do it. In practice, though, people don't really want to change the rules overall, they just want to make the case that this time we should bend them a little. I think we'd all be better off if we just relaxed a bit and let people ask their questions.
