Star Wars, no contest
Star Trek is science fiction. On the Mohs Scale of Science Fiction Hardness, Star Trek leans more towards the "hard" side. It focuses on physics (even if it's in-universe physics and not real world physics), does not use mystical elements, and generally tries to find scientific explanations for occurrences. In these cases, it much more typifies science fiction.
Star Wars, on the other hand, is an example of space opera. On the Mohs Scale of Science Fiction Hardness, Star Wars leans much, much towards the "soft" side. While it is set in space, and it does apply in-universe physics, it is not beholden to them, and even use element more often used in fantasy works. This is why we can have the Jedi and Sith using the ever-present energy field known as the Force, the use of which is based upon or even determines your morality. This genre of stories relies less on "factual sciences" and more on "rule of cool."
So, to me, I don't even see them as comparable. In many ways, comparing Star Trek with Star Wars is like comparing The Wild Wild West with Lord of the Rings.
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
Star Trek has so much more to offer. Star Wars was great until the idiot prequals that ruined it. Of course Babylon 5 has no equal either way, and it was just a TV show.

I must admit Star Trek IS great for making demotivational posters though

And I wouldn't put Star Trek in with MS-F because while they do have military tropes, they have more tropes concerned with exploration and social issues, which makes it much broader in scope.
SG-1, on the other hand, focuses much more on the military aspects of science fiction in any number of ways. After all, the Stargate Program is military in nature, and so civilian use of sci-fi aspects (such as the Stargate or meeting with aliens) is generally averted. So that's how I would categorize that franchise if I had to.
