A Q-like being visits you and tells you that in exactly one day, a gamma ray burst will hit Earth and make it completely uninhabitable to life. This being gives you the option (read: you can choose to stay and die) to permanently relocate to any fictional world of your choice: i.e. Middle-Earth, Star Trek Earth, Coruscant, DC's Earth, Marvel's Asgard ... it doesn't matter; you can go to a world where humans are known, or one where we're completely alien and unknown. You can bring any number of family/friends with you, with the caveat that each of you will only and forever be regular humans, and must initially assume a similar social class in the new world as the one you lived on Earth. You can grow in class, assuming this is allowed by said world's society.

Assuming that communicating with the new world's inhabitants won't be a barrier, which world would you choose? And why?

Fantasy Worlds are a problem since human are usually at the bottom of the barrel unless they are rich or wizards. Plus, I would miss modern amenities like medical care and indoor plumbing.

Many sci-fi worlds have the same problems as modern earth (or worse) despite the technology.

Star Trek is a socialist utopia with universal healthcare. Everyone is pretty much the same class. And from what I've seen even if you are not a scientific genius you can still make a pretty good living.

So I would choose Earth of ST: TNG. I would take myself along with my close friends and family.
