Help me find a nice, Sci-Fi typeface that doesn't feel too modern or
too old fashioned

I've been working for a while now on putting together a new website focusing on Sci-Fi.
The design itself is pretty much sorted, but what I'm missing is a nice typeface for logo text.
Ideally I'm after something that evokes the Terran Trade Authority
ethos of Sci-Fi - that hint of wonder and nostalgia that good Sci-Fi (both visual and textual) still invokes today. Indeed the logo text itself will be overlaid on top of Sci-Fi landscape art both on the site header and in advertising material.
Anyone got any suggestions for good typefaces that might match this style? Most of the typefaces I'm finding are either a bit too "roboty" or very 1930s, and I suspect we want something a bit more subtle.
