YES! Skuldren pretty much summed it up, Why try to compare the two? They are totally different things.

And besides, you should be thankful, without Trek, we wouldn't have Star Wars. George Lucas thinks the whole debate is pointless, and he considers himself a Trekkie.

Disclaimer: I haven't seen Star Trek since I was little so I'm only going on recollections, but this is why Star Wars is better.

1. Star Trek takes itself way too seriously. For me, back then at least, it was like watching a dreaded news broadcast.
2. The battles are boring. You see a bunch of guys on a command bridge, saying "shields up", "Fire on sector G-4", but you don't actually see the battle.
3. As for the fan following, I won't even get into it... Confused Laughing

*snickers* Reminds me of a Trek sketch I saw once on TV. "Oh no! Red alert! We're being fired upon! Quick, everyone! Swivel in your chairs!". Wink

Which reminds me of an episode of The Next Generation I saw once. The Enterprise was apparently being attacked and Picard said "Red alert!". The scene went on but once the danger passed, somebody seemed to forget to turn the red alert off. So the crew was sitting there, having a casual conversation about the warp core or whatever, and the sirens were blaring and red lights were flashing the whole time. I laughed.

And say what you will about the Falcon's hyperdrive; it didn't malfunction nearly as many times as the Enterprise's warp core. The thing breaks every episode! I thought that ship was state-of-the-art. Wink

Oh, but it is! Scotty and whoever else worked in engineering were trained for it. You'd think they could keep the thing running. Han, on the other, mainly used the whack-the-bulkhead-with-a-hydrospanner method. Wink

Deep Space Nine- first 2 seasons were slow, but where the foundation for the ONLY Star Trek to have a full war going on in it. And the only Federation ship with cloaking! I loved the ships they have and the battles they had after season 4 and beyond. And the Tribbles episode was the coolest thing at it's time.


But for the taking itself serious- I have a commentary how they have guys who get scripts that say things like "tech the tech, tech the tech with their tech" and these guys give them multiple ways of "could be done" and they run with "what sounds cool" Laughing

See, there's a peeve of mine right there: cloaking. I always hated that concept. Confused

Why cause time after time it's flawed? In both SW and ST there are ways to detect it if one LOOKS Laughing

I seem to recall Romulan vessels in TNG actually disappearing from sight while cloaked.

And we even had the ones that Phased- those were even better- they used Nutrenos or some other new word to track ships in cloak. Love those Teching the tech writers!

But it made no sense! That was the thing about Star Trek. Some writer would just type, "We need to fix the "tech" with the "tech" before the "tech" overheats,". Then they just inserted whatever sounded cool. Rolling Eyes

A thread I feel needs to be revived. I was inspired by Rogue's recent blog post:

Do you even LIKE Star Wars?!

Due to the fans' increasing hostility toward each other, I say we all need something to fight against! We need to ban together, and rag on the Trekkies! Besides, they deserve it. They are, after all, Trekkies. Very Happy

So, if for no other reason than to save our our fanbase from certain destruction, let us bash the heck out of the Trekkies! Twisted Evil

Edit: And if you are, Force forbid, a fan of both...then it's time you chose sides. Join with us as we seek to save ourselves!
