Originals:

Star Wars>Star Trek

Whole Series:

Star Trek>Star Wars

Yes, even with Voyager and Enterprise. The newer Star Wars movies are just...that bad.

I like the original Star Trek TV show and the more recent Star Trek movies (a reimagined version of the original).

For whatever reason, I can’t get into the other Star Trek stuff. And i’m Not into Star Wars at all.

I *LOVE* The Orville!







So there’s some humor. Lots of action, too!

Star Trek is sci-fi .. .. . I prefer the Roddenberry influenced ones ..

Star Wars is fantasy .. I do enjoy the movies but I'd have to say that they seem a bit unoriginal ..

It's decent sci-fi for the most part. The original series was groundbreaking for a few reasons, not least because it took sci-fi seriously as a genre, rather than using the setting as a launchpad for other types of stories (horror, etc.).

Star Wars is "space opera" but yeah, on the real fantasy end. The first two were groundbreaking in restoring escapism and archetypal storytelling to Hollywood. After that, it was marketing.

Part of the reason they seem unoriginal is because they have been copied so much that "you've seen it before you've seen it"...kind of like showing a younger person Citizen Kane and they ask, so what's the big deal?
