Star Wars has better Music.
One word, Lightsabers.
Star Wars has better film making and special effects.
Star Wars has a better story line.
No character on Star Trek even comes close in greatness compared to Darth Vader.

(No, not much thought was put into this. I just want to get my voting privileges on this website...)

Star Trek was aspirational looking forward into the future, while Star Wars was a fantasy about the past.

Star Trek was SciFi while Star Wars was fantasy, wizards & knights & princesses masquerading as SciFi.

Martin Luther King watched Star Trek and felt the show advanced civil rights in the US.

Lightsabers? Swords made of light? What's making all those clashing sounds when they crash? Phasers are cooler, follow the rules of physics and are adjustable.

There are hundreds of hours of Star Trek to watch as opposed to 12 hours of Star Wars, so the politics and people of the world to a far greater extent.

7 of 9 vs. Princess Leia? Is it even close?

Spock was at least as interesting a character as Darth Vader.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro loses conduct for stating outright that the debate doesn't matter much to him. Con wins arguments. Pro wins sources, as his source isn't SO unreliable as to not even be considered.
