SF Cliches

Here's an idea for a contest: Write a story using every cliche listed at The Grand List of Overused Science Fiction Cliches.

That would actually make a fun anthology: various stories which employ the hoariest old SF cliches for fun and profit. It would be easy enough to write parodies; the harder, and more worthwhile, challenge would be to write stories of depth, stories that weren't just jokes.
