Mmm...

Ewok soup...

Nah. Star wars is good for those who like fantasy and stuff. There's nothing wrong with that, I enjoyed LOTR. But picture LOTR in 5000 A.D., and now you can imagine how silly it seems. Star Wars is like LOTR in space. I really can't it seriously, hehe. BUt entertaining nonetheless.

Star trek is witty. Star trek has memorable captains like Kirk, Picard, and Janeway. Star trek was the first series ever I believe to have included a black person in their cast and an asian guy. Star trek also had a woman captain like Janeway.

And star trek deals with real issues like politics, sexism, and racism. It just seems more real and definately it's more scientifc.

I guess thats why i like it more than star wars, that and the fact that there are actually new episodes coming out every week, its off season at the moment in Australia, but dont u star wars guys get sick of watching the same 3 movies over and over, no matter how good they are, and episode 1 and 2 are pretty shit, there like half-decent movies. Dragonrat, im going to end this argument, i just realised how damn stupid it is lol.

No, never have, never will, just like the LOTR trilogy, they're always good enough to watch again and again.

The only reason Star Trek deals with real-life issues, is because they have the TV time to do so. I mean, they've had four shows (and a fifth still on the air) for the past few decades; in that time, every drama will undergo an episode or two (or more) about relevant issues.

As for Star Wars, it remains the quintessential science-fiction movie, because it deals with the usual ideals - heroism, altruism, fighting the good fight, getting the girl at the end, finding one's true identity, and finally, REDEMPTION. Lucas was able to combine religious ideals to form a cohesive story that surrounded the Skywalker family.

But yes, this argument is futile. I just prefer Star Wars, honestly, because Trekkies wear the weird Federation uniforms, and speak Klingon. And the Universal Translator was a cop-out, so that everyone can talk in perfect English.

I prefer Star Wars cause the Star Wars fans tend to smell a little better than the Star Trek fans.

Also because 'trek' is a totally naff word.

I've never really noticed a difference in their 'bouquet'.
They all taste like chicken, though.
