    Star Wars Vs. Star Trek

    A couple of weeks ago in the chatroom I mention to the other member why Star Wars and Star Trek are superior to each other but the reason why Star Wars is more superior than Star Trek. It's a very long explanation so I'm giving you my reasons: The storyline. The Star Wars storyline is way different and more better than Star Trek because of the space battles and plot. It excites the Star Wars fans because of the action and adventure and the shocking surprises which leads them to a cliffhanger. While Star Trek lack a quality of a good storyline at all which means Star Wars wins the storyline. The Universe: Star Wars got over hundreds of planets where Star Trek got a few planets. Aliens: Star Wars got so many inter-galatic species is too many to count where Star Trek only got Klingon and Borg species. Originality: Star Wars got so much originality and creativity where Star Trek lack of. So overall Star Wars is more superior than Star Trek.

    Please explain more why you think Star Trek is more superior before I say anything Medusa.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    science...



    I guess it's more scientific to pull off time travel via slingshotting an insanely fast ship off the sun than it is to have



    an insanely fast Kryptonian fly circles around the planet but only barely

    Someday they will integrate the two. Maybe Finn is Guinan's son or something. I re-watched ST "Generations" today, the one where Kirk & Picard meet and are in the nexus, and Kirk dies at the end on a suspension bridge/catwalk kind of thing.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Star Trek used ideas of science that are actually being used now. I realize that we all want real light sabers and stuff.

    That's a whole list of stuff that's actually usable to us now. Star Wars was and is a family soap opera (those are Lucas' words to be exact). While Star Trek is more of a show that was able to show us ourselves and our issues but using 'space stuff' to make it easier for us to digest.

    I mean we don't like to talk about race. But then you do a seemingly simple episode of space people who are half black and white and the other is half white and black and you get to see how ridiculous we are. We can discuss our issues safely while it's not in our 'reality' but in like space and stuff.

    Erhmmm.....



    Merging the two franchises would be bad for both of them. They have different themes, largely different cosmologies and very different scales.

    Re: Star Wars Vs. Star Trek

    So, I grew up watching both. But, here is why Start Trek has touched me far more in my life than Star Wars ever did. Star Wars is a fun space romp that doesn't rely much on explanation and engages feeling as opposed to intellect. It does this very well. Star Trek was a show, that in the 1960's pushed boundaries more than any other show before it. The first interracial kiss on television? That was Star Trek. It was a show that's message was equality, fairness, and the betterment of the human race. Martin L. King Jr., himself, was a fan. It touches moral questions and storylines like no other show has. It has a rich, detailed canon that spans hundreds of years. Star Trek is also far more relatable to me as it exists only a few hundred years in the future and is an exploration into the potential of humanity.

    Much of my current viewpoints and beliefs are shaped by Star Trek. It got me interested in science and learning as a small child. No other television show has come close to doing this. It is a shame what Hollywood has done to Gene Roddenberry's vision. Star Wars has never made me cry. Star Trek has.

    I will respond directly to this to correct some of the fallacies you have posted.

    Star Trek lacking a quality storyline? You are only able to name two species in the entire Trek Universe which makes me wonder if you have ever watched it at all. Star Trek has shown probably hundred of more aliens on screen than Star War ever could in it's paltry seven movies. Space battles? Check out Deep Space Nine's Dominion War story arc. Only a few planets? Almost every episode takes place on a different planet. How many times do we have to see Tatooine and Coruscant in the Star War's movies?

    Your arguments are poorly base and it seems you are making claims with absolutely no knowledge of Star Trek at all.

    Re: Star Wars Vs. Star Trek

    Ok now I'm going to say something about it Medusa. Star Trek lacks science. It doesn't have any potential to use the lack of science unlike Star Wars. There I said it.

    My point is proven. You have absolutely no clue what your talking about. I think you are just being ridiculous for the sake of being ridiculous as you have little to offer an actual discussion about this.
