It's a comparison of two completely different things.
Trek is a serious work of introspective and speculative science fiction, focusing on key issues that face societies and their development. It is a hopeful show that highlights both the successes and failures of humanity and other species as they continue to grow and develop.
Star Wars is a silly space opera involving space mages for 12 year olds, with about as much depth and character development as an episode of animaniacs.
I just don't understand how people can even compare the two.

But both of the JJ Abrams-era trilogies for both Franchises are trash. Star Trek 1 was the best of the lot.
Interesting. I love Star Trek, but I've never met a fan of the first movie before. It was a pretty intellectual film with little of the space swashbuckling the series was known for
I believe he was referring to Star Trek 2009, the first reboot film. As for TMP, the original Star Trek 1, I really enjoy watching it because it is so different from most other science fiction films. There’s something compelling about an ambitious failure. It’s not my favorite Star Trek movie by far, but it is probably the one I’ve rewatched (parts of) the most.
If you haven’t seen the Star Trek Ships Only edits include Youtube, I recommend them.
