Star Wars is substantially better in my opinion. The original trilogy at least. This video sums up how I feel about the newest 3.


Star Trek has always been too thick with schlocky corniness for me to really enjoy, and it only got worse with subsequent series. Ok so Star Trek does have the cuter girls. I will give it that. But that's it.

Didn't even notice. I recognized the judge's voice but I'm not sure from what.

We got death star...we'll blow your planet up. Plus Yoda. And Calrissian...Colt 45 malt liquor, works every time...
Yes, this is exactly why I found Star Wars to be far superior when I was a teenager. Everything is just made to be "cooler". And that's about it.

But I just don't see how (adult) serious sci-fi fans would ever pick Star Wars over Star Trek. The themes the latter explores are really what classic science fiction is all about.

I'm surprised Voyager gets so little love though. Some of the episodes were among the best I've ever seen on TV.

Guilty pleasure? Stargate SG-1

The series was better. But I don't consider Firefly a guilty pleasure... it was a good show!

Yeah, I agree that the other Stargate series were nowhere near as good.

Although I did like the last few seasons of Atlantis better than The last few of SG 1. Once you change the cast all around it's hard to keep the same good feel. I still don't like Matt Smith as the doctor and his companions just bore me now.

Firefly was amazing, as was doll house. To get back to the topic though, I agree voyager was good, as was DS9 but didn't much care for enterprise. Maybe I just didn't watch enough. Never could get over steering away from classic star trek melody for that crappy song.

Well when you start adding in all the other sci-fi shows Firefly takes the cake.

I'll still stand by trek over wars though. Trek just also added so much for technology as well. Think of everything trek had that wasn't invented yet, from automatically opening sliding doors to an MRI machine. Stuff wasn't even thought of yet.

in real life, the sliding oor was around before star trek.
H.G. Wells was a tad ahead of the Horton's AND star trek...
