    I voted for trek because it just better! I cant explain why i voted for it other than that i prefer to watch Star Trek.

    I only picked Star Wars because it never claimed to be scientifically consistent - while it was implied in Star Trek that it was - and neither of them (Wars or Trek) are.

    Apples and oranges but I'd have to say Trek. If you ignore the really ridiculous stuff you can almost pretend that it's real.

    Look at my avatar and you know my answer. Luke would pummel Kirk to bloody goo. And Light sabers are cooler than phasers. And besides, what kind of alien civilization would name their planet X-2347R?!

    i voted for trek, mostly the old stuff. i know most of it was ripped from classic literature but i still appreciate the moral and ethical situations portrayed in them more than star wars which i find to be of less value in that sense.

    Star wars is cool but I feel episodes one and two have dampened down the flame a bit, they were a bit crap. Jar JAR STEPPING IN CRAP, WHY?

    just because i like it more

    I liked Star Trek more. Star Wars is good and has better special effects but only comes in second place.

    I made the same thread in PF 2.0... It eventually ended up in a very large debate resulting in no conclusion. However, I voted StarTrek

    I voted star trek, but not becuase I like it. I hate them both, but treky nerds are really funny to laugh at so it really makes my day sometimes.

    Fortunately the robot had a trusty old hammer to fix the problem;
