I like the way the recent film reimagines the series. As well as being a good action film in it's own right the casting is brilliant at keeping the spirit of the original cast especially Spock and McKoy.
However elsewhere in the ST universe I did find TNG could get patronising at time. Dr Crusher totally irritated me with her "high morals" and her son was like just so dumb. "why do people get angry mummy" and othersuch nonsense. So for me it's Star Wars as even the prequels and messed up re-imaged originals (if you can still call them that) cannot be as bad as some ST episodes.
Btw @Wayne sorry yeah I rushed my initial post so wasn't very clear on where I stood. Hopefully this is clearer

I like both but for me Star Wars wins because it's part of my childhood. I had lots of Star Wars toys when I was younger and now they are up in the attic.

Definitely both lol. My mum watched voyager when she was pregnant and had to rest - my dad bought her each of the new videos as they came out so I was steadily absorbing Trek in utero XD. And the original Star Wars films became my favourite films as soon as I was old enough to watch them all the way through and follow the plot. Taken, 4400, and Battlestar Galactica have all become staples in my house, along with Doctor Who, Torchwood, Firefly... You know what if I list them all, I'll be here a while. Needless to say my childhood was awesome :p

As a child, Star Wars, as an adult, Star Trek.

I don't recall any tap dancing in SG1.

Star Trek best for TV.
Star Wars best for films.

"I remember that, too - Xmas afternoon was The Great Escape on BBC1, then the Queen's Speech before flipping to ITV just in time to catch the start of A New Hope or The Empire Strikes Back (they seemed to alternate each year). Then on Boxing Day afternoon, we'd settle in to let lunch go down with the annual Bond movie."

You forgot the obligatory Indianna Jones film.

Well, Darth Vader waves his lightsabre in A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi so take your pick.

Was that another obligatory one? When I was a lad Raiders seemed to get a shoe-in every four or five years, and usually between Xmas and New Year rather than at Xmas itself. Of course, the habit could have changed - I've not bothered with Xmas for the better part of a decade now and the same goes for the TV offerings. It has to be said I watch very little TV, now I think about it. A decent drama like The Deep, Occupation or The House of Saddam, or when there's a new series of Top Gear (or an old episode on Dave to do the tedious ironing to) and that's about it. Usually it's evenings only for the TV and the BD/DVD player is on at the same time. I guess it's the cheap availability of movies without ad and news breaks - either owning or renting DVDs - coupled with the short leadtime between cinematic and DVD releases these days that does it. Ditto for boxsets of series like V and Morse. Plus the dross offered by broadcasters. All those Freeview channels and nowt on any of them! :-D

I seem to remember when I was a kid (80's) a Indy film on every Xmas. But to be fair it could've been between Xmas and New Year, as a kid it all seemed to blur together.

And The Snowman, every year the dam Snowman.

Does it matter if the discussion wanders a bit? As long it doesn't go totally off-topic I don't see the problem. It's what makes human communication - even virtual conversations like this one - so great. :-D

Exactly, who cares.

But someone cared enough to report my post.

Oh Diddums

I don't really like comparing these two, because they have little in comparison apart from similar titles. Star Wars is a space fantasy series about a young farm boy, Star Trek is sci-fi show/film series about what space exploration might be like in the far future.

If I had to choose one though I'd say Star Wars, as it's the one which made the biggest impact on my childhood and have always been fascinated by the wider universe within which the films are set. However in recent years I've started to appreciate and enjoy Star Trek much, much more, particularly TNG and DS9, so it's very close between the two.

I reacted to the person asking me to stop discussing SG1, considering I mentioned it only once and did not bring up the subject, it irked me.

And being set mostly in space. And having some far out funky fantastic and highly detailed models. And... And... And... :-D

Don't get pernickety.

My point is at their core they have little in comparison and hence shouldn't be compared

There are a great number of films and TV shows set in space, but you wouldn't compare all of them. Would you compare Alien to Star Wars? No. Alien may have been made due to the success of SW, but they have nothing else in comparison apart from being set in space and featuring extra terrestrial life, and even that's pretty far flung since in Alien it's trying to kill the main cast in pretty gruesome ways.

Star Trek all the way, roll on October as I'll be going to London to meet all Five captains as well as others I have yet to meet (I emphasise the fact that I DO NOT dress up!)
