Star Trek all the way. Well, assuming that it's Next Generation, anyway. And a bit of DS9 is acceptable. But the original series, Voyager and Enterprise can suck it. Star Wars is better than thems. However, Next Generation whoops all the others, and then some.

Star Wars has been ruined by George Lucas, and everybody in Star Trek is too much of a goody two shoes. Although Gul Dukat and Garek are some of the best characters ever seen in sci-fi.

For me, Farscape all the way.

I'd have to say Star Wars. I like Star Trek, but is not as good as Star Wars in my opinion.

Depends. Is it the original Han shot first STAR WARS, or stupid dance routine star wars? I have to agree those last three and the redone releases of the original 3 just killed star wars for me.

To be quite fair it all depends on how far you take Star Wars. If you only take it as far as Lucas' Episodes 1-6 then obviously Star Trek all the way. However if you take Star Wars and all of its content then Star Wars no contest. The world of Star Wars outside of the movies is vast and very interesting and surpasses Star Trek. Don't get me wrong here I'm not trying to be bias. I myself am a Star Wars fan hardcore but i did venture forth into the darkside and watched many of the Star Trek Episodes, like Gen and DS9 and so on. IMO, Star Wars takes it home all the way.

Just last year I watch season 1 through 10 of Stargate in a month and a half, just started on TNG as I watched it when it was first on but, not since.

I had to pick Star wars tho, as its the one I've spent the most time with. Games books and films, whereas with Star Trek its mostly just the show.

Star Wars all the way for me, but not so much because of the movies but because of the EU and books. Those are really what added the depth to the universe for me, and frankly they have much better stories.

Totally agree. Star Trek and Star Wars are nice. B5 is a cut above everything else. Farscape and the new BSG got close...

Star Trek. I just get more out of the universe. I highly believe in its core messages (strange yes when I mainly play Orks XD), and I see Star Wars as a space opera that's all about eye candy rather than substance.

I don't quite reckon Star Trek needs a death star... I mean, lets see how far that goes for them when Spock drops a black hole right in the middle of it eh?
