As already said - this is comparing apples to oranges!

Star Wars is more of a fairy tale than science fiction - borrowing heavily from some archetypal mythic themes that recur throughout literature: good, evil, downfall, redemption and salvation, etc.

It is set 'a long time ago and in a galaxy far, far away' so may as well be any mythical, fairy-tale location. Although featuring 'tech', in the form of space ships, space stations, beam weapons, robots, etc., they are often not rooted in any known earthly science so, for the most part, defy explanation - such as light sabres!

Star Trek is typical science fiction in that it is set in the future where technological and social advancement has elevated the human condition. The tech featured does have its roots in known science (Roddenberry consulted NASA personnel and other scientists right from the original TV series).

Personally, I was not impressed when I first saw Star Wars at the cinema (though it has grown on me somewhat with constant TV repeats!) as I thought it was rather silly and childish with excruciating dialogue that was far too littered with contemporary earthly slang for a film set in a different galaxy a long time ago! The only things I really relished on first viewing was veteran Hammer stalwart Peter Cushing's performance as Grand Moff Tarkin and John Williams' stunning music score.

As for the first Star Trek movie - "Star Trek: The Slow-Motion Picture" was the most fitting one-line review I saw reported!

My favourite Star Trek series (in order of preference) TNG (though it didn't really get into its stride until season three), Voyager, Enterprise, Original TV series and DSN (initially found it a little too bleak and negative compared to previous Treks).

Star Wars has grown on me the more I see them but I tend to prefer episodes three and six over all the others.

Aw come on 6 pages and no mention of the grand daddy of them all. Lost in space from 1965 by irwin allen with the special guest star Johnathon Harris alias Dr Zachary Smith. Blimey the thing's that he used to call that poor old robot, and the devious plans that he would hatch against the poor old Space family Robinson, damn good acting, even if the rest of the cast were somewhat wooden.
And the Charriot - blimey it was nearly as big as the Jupiter Two.
The film was crap but the series was epic.
