It's true.  Star Trek is better than Star Wars.

Nope. Not even close. And Firefly/Serenity is better than either.

Whatever minger. Star Trek was way better than the rest of the crappy sci fi stuff.

Someone tell me what good Star Wars had on society, besides giving a bunch of acne ridden douchebags something to obsess over?

Star Trek had so much influence on society.  It was the first realistic foray into visualizing the future.  Because of that television show back in the late 60s, so many advancements in technologies were made merely by people who were inspired by what they saw in the show.  The first personal computer (the Altair 8800) was named after a solar system mentioned in the original series.  Cordless and mobile phones were inspired by the show.  Same goes for hand held devices like PDAs.

The Next Generation came along and a new generation of people were inspired in all sorts of fields like astrophysics, theoretical physics, medicine, and I could go on.

While the shows may not have been the best examples of "theatre" there ever was (in fact, I'm definitely the first Trek fan to admit that the original show had some of the worst acting I've ever seen), but the impact that it, and The Next Generation had on the world is undeniable.  If Star Wars can say the same thing, please someone enlighten me.  The only thing I can think of is Lucas' legacy in special effects, and that's hardly the most important thing in the world.

Star Wars stands the test of time...Star Trek does not, it has to constantly be re-done, digitally enhanced. I watched Star Wars Empires Strikes Back the other night, and I could honestly say that it could've been made in the last 10 years.

And its just your classic story of good triupmhing over evil, if that doesn't teach you a valuable lesson, then what does?

Its hard for me to say anything good about Star Trek as I think it is one of the most slow and lame TV series I have ever seen, except for maybe Heartbreak High  :o

Like...O M G ! ! ! He is, like, totally using the gun as like some kind of sexual weapon. O M G ! ! That is like, totally awesome! ! !

I'm not really a huge fan of Star Trek, believe it or not, but I have a lot more respect for it than Star Wars.  Star Wars is just fantasy in space.  And it borrows from many other series and movies, much in the same way that tires often get "borrowed" from cars in New York.

I like both and don't really see the logical point of pisstaking on either side. Both have something for those interested.

Piss off and die in a steaming pile.
My problem with his ideas is that it is a ridiculous thing.

Genius. PURE, undiluted genius.

The only good Star Trek was The Next Generation.

And I've never liked Star Wars though. It's up there in being overrated like The Lord of the Rings...in which I only watched part of the third one and fell asleep in the theater during it. AND after all that I still knew the story.

Doesn't matter. I could care less about the impact it had, I just watched the damn things. Yeah, something to think about, but I agree with Midsy. No point in pissing in an ocean of piss, boy.

Wouldn't the point be to relieve yourself? And why piss anywhere else but in an ocean of piss, it's much more convenient.  :D

Leia's Metal Bikini.  That is an addition worth noting.

Either way, the new Battlestar Galactica pwns them all.

Star Trek vs Star Wars
If we're talking military superiority, Star Wars would definitely win (based on canon).

However, in a basis of which has had the greatest impact on society, I would have to go with Star Trek.  I mean, they fans of star trek are truly devoted to the series, even arguing against NBC when Star Trek: The Original Series was going to go off the air.  It also addressed issues such as racism and the Vietnam War, which to my understanding Star Wars never did.  It was a good story but had no real morality that could apply to our current issues.  One of the fans was Martin Luther King Jr., who got Nichelle Nichols (Uhura) to stay on the show.
Oh, watch the History of Star Wars tonight at 8:00 on the History Channel.

Anyway I think Star Trek is better mainly cos I grew up watching it (and Babylon 5 and that other one I can't remember) cos my dad watched it so we all watched it as well.

Well, I don't judge shows on how they impact society, I judge them on how good they are. A bad show is still bad no matter how it effects society.

So Star Wars all the way.

I think I only saw one Star Wars film, they just didn't interest me at all.

I remember the other one I watched now, Deep Space Nine.

Deep Space Nine is Star Trek, though.
