RE: Scummiest Profession

Televangelist is the absolute no1 on that list. Using religion & people's credulity as a tool to fill his own pockets is about the lowest level you could reach.
Slave & arms trading , human/ & drugs trafficking is even worse although these don't really qualify as professions.

I don't know if "The Andromeda Strain" ( the one from 1971) qualifies as a sci-fi since I read that the research methods shown in the movie correspond to the real ones used at the time.
Anyhow, great movie, as are Alien, the first 3 Star Wars movies, 2001 A space Odyssey and Blade Runner.
