Pseudo-fantasy is one of the principal genres of The Original Jesse Millette Series and was introduced as part of the astronisation of the series. The term was coined by Cometan to describe the mixture of realism and futurism that came to define and distinguish the spacefaring world as a whole.

A pseudo-fantasy is a genre in which the events, environment, and world order of the narrative are clearly futuristic and fictional, however, they remain realistic enough to be prophesied and/or believed to occur sometime in the future. As the first example of this, it was Cometan's Astronist prophecy that the spacefaring world and the associated culture of spacefaring would come to dominate the world after the occurrence of both the Astronomic Revolution and the astronisation of societies.
