I have met very few people in Africa or Asia who knew what Star Trek was. Even a drunk Australian can recognize Darth Vader.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
There are no prequels in Star Trek. Nuff said. Well there's Star Trek: Enterprise but I'm not going to count it because as a Trekker I'm biased.
Either way DS9, especially after season 4 is nothing but win.
Star wars 3,4,5,6. are better than star trek. One and two are just bad. All star trek exept for that one that came out recently is bad. So i vote Star Wars.

OK.... Star Trek is for the cerebral geek. Star Wars is more for...... children.

I enjoyed both a great deal, accepting them for what they are.
As Sam said, Star Trek was more Science Fiction, whereas Star Wars was space opera or Science Fantasy.
Babylon 5 was better than both put together. It had real depth... well except for that last season and some of the post-production movies were a bit iffy.
But, I gotta say...
Firefly for the win!

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
Firefly... I dunno. I enjoy the show and the series. However, I think the fact that it was short-lived may have propelled it's mythic status a bit higher than it might have been if it wasn't cancelled. After all, the criticism that FOX got for cancelling Firefly was, I think, the reason why FOX gave Dollhouse a second season, which I don't think it deserved.
Who knows? Maybe Firefly would be better as a series of movies than as a tv show? With it's success, I'm kinda wondering why a sequel isn't being planned already.
