    I think that says what kind of tech is superior.

    Definitely Star Trek over Star Wars.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    True, but it was from the future. I mean in all honesty the stuff in the future of Star Wars may even be better.

    The mining ship couldn't kill planets. The vulcan red-matter (which acted similarly to a black hole) killed the planets.

    The mining ship just drilled the hole.

    And let's be honest, it's not like the empire didn't have planet-destroying superweapons.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Yes they did, but they never got it to work correctly. It only worked one time for Scotty.

    The Federation does use cloaking devices as evidence by Kirk using a Klingon Bird of Prey and stealing a cloaking device in The Enterprise Incident plus the Defiant having one. It wasn't until much later that the Federation signed the Treaty of Algeron that said they wouldn't develop cloaking technology. The treaty doesn't mention that they are prohibited from using it.

    The Galactic Empire vastly outnumbers the United Federation of Planets. I mean, overwhelmingly outnumbers. In addition, they have the Dark Side of the Force. Emperor Palpatine could just use "Battle Meditation," and win basically any engagement he is presiding over.

    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.

    Playing devil's advocate, if the Federation ships don't have to exit warp to attack the Empire ships, then it doesn't matter. If, however, the Empire's ships are strong enough to protect against the Federation ships, then it goes to the Empire.

    It all comes down to the numbers, which we don't really have clear numbers for.

    numbers don't matter for jack squat. federation ships can attack from warp, the empire would never know when or where they were going to get hit, no cloaking tech required. a couple of galaxy class cruisers could strafe an entire fleet of star destroyers, blow their ass to bits and be long gone before the empire knew what hit them.

    The dark side is nothing compared to Wesley's latest science experiment.
