RetroToast, The majority of your opening argument is opinion, that really don't matter. I WANT RELATIVE FACTS!!!! I'm not saying Star Trek is better, I'm saying Star Wars isn't better. What is with Star Wars has a BETTER orchestra!? Star Trek doesn't have an orchestra, because it isn't an opera like Star Wars, it just has cool music to go along with the film. Oh, and when you said Star Wars has more planets, you where dead wrong you ignorant noob. More diverse aliens other than humanoids? Here let's define humanoid. Humanoid- Word describing a creature with human feature or form. This means a flippin' rancor is a humanoid because it shares that particular form. More interesting characters? Really? All characters in each series are awesome. Which one has salacious crumb? Now that's just stupid. All he does is sit there and giggle and make Jabba the Hut. Which franchise has more games? Star Trek isn't a focus in gaming, it's about the TV series and Movies.

You can't say one is better because Star Wars is focused on the action, and Star Trek on adventure.

Action is better than long boring scenes of "LOOK! LOOK AT OUR CGI ON THE SHIPS!" Anyways, if you search up "star wars vs star trek", you will see many of them boasting, shouting, and showing that Star Wars is the obvious winner. Also, when it first came out, Star Wars was getting better reviews than Star Trek did. You can argue the Next Generation is pretty cool you know that in an all out war, the Star Wars Universe would ultimately destroy the puny ship of the Star Trek Universe and take little damage from their phasers. Fighters could swarm the ships and be small and hard to hit because the Star Trek ships are used to the large ship versus large ship. The Star Wars Universe also has the amazing spin-off series on TV, "Star Wars: The Clone Wars", which is cool. Here we have main heroes Anakin Skywalker, Jedi Knight with a temper, and Ahsoka Tano, Anakin"s feisty padawan with an attitude. Also we have appearances of Obi-Wan Kenobi, R2D2, C-3PO, Asajj Ventress, Count Dooku, General Grievous, Captain Rex, Commander Cody, stupid droids, brave clones, and many others. Last point, which are you more excited for, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, or the next Star Trek Lens Flare a-thon? That concludes my argument. Thank you and laugh like Jabba at Star Trek.

Sorry I didn't submit my debate on time.

Your ignorance of Star Trek is really showing. Star Trek has more action than the beginning series, (Which was meant to cause nerdgasms). So what better reviews and many people boasting. Note on the 'many'. That doesn't matter. It just has a larger group of fans. Only very few can stand nerdgasms. SWTCW isn't really that bad, I must admit. It was just meant to create a larger group of central appeal. (The lil' kiddies. [SW geeks still watch it though]). Once again, hype from larger group of fans, not the fact of being better. The lens flares are just mean't for effect dude! One cannot be better than the other, because they are two totally different things. (This ends my debate, and concludes the winner.

I agree with retrotoast, although the fact that Star Wars has more merchandise than Star Trek is a reason for Star Wars being more popular, but Star Wars is better for a different reason. The story line of Star Wars is much more "linear", shall we say, it is easier to follow and it makes sense. Star Trek's multiple episodes, movies, and series makes it harder for one follow one story. With Star Wars there is only one root story that branches out to different mini stories. That is why Star Wars is better. Also Star Wars has better video games.

Loved Star Trek: TNG, but personally cannot seem to enjoy any of the Star Wars film. It hardly even seems like sci fi. Where's the 'science'?

I like star trek, but I'm a bigger Star wars fan. I just find the world more realistic and relateable, as well as easier to understand story wise.
That and the light sabers!

Star Trek is WAAAYYYY better than Star Wars. Star wars is good if you want low intelligence explosions and fight scenes. [Star wars is still pretty good though]
