    See, Star Wars would have won my vote, if the prequels had been better. However due to how **** they were, and how good the Star Trek reboot was.

    Star Trek will become stronger then Star Wars ever was if it plays its cards right in the next few years.

    Not very likely. Historically, Star Wars: A New Hope is like what Avatar would have been the CGI powering the movie had come completely out of nowhere, instead of having a decade lead up in movies like I Am Legend. We can look down on it a bit now, but the OT up to Return of the Jedi was too aesthetically revolutionary for any visual and audio experience to come close. The characters weren't exhaustive explorations of the human psyche, but they were charming and memorable, and the plots were simple enough tor restonate with every culture.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Yeah, sorry, not going to happen. Star wars wins the tech war. By a gigantic margin. If the empire and the federation went to war, the federation would be wiped out in weeks.

    This is one of the dumbest geek arguments of all time. Why anyone would spend even half a second worrying about it has always baffled me.

    But the Federation isn't the sole faction in the Star Trek universe.

    After all, consider what would happen should the Borg raid the Jedi Temple for Younglings and teleport out and then assimilate them into the collective?

    The Empire wasn't the sole faction in the Star Wars universe either, but they became that way by being the baddest mothers around.

    Re: Star Trek or Star Wars?

    Since the question has obviously come up, I would have to go with Star Trek in any war between ST and SW's forces.

    Star Trek has better tech, hands down.

    Teleporters alone provide vast tactical and (possibly) strategic advantages, and that doesn't even touch on the higher tech shielding, weaponry (both types and adaptability), medical knowledge/ability, computing power/skill...One could go on.
    Education.
