I think Star Trek is much better overall. The message of Star Trek is stronger than Star Wars. With ST, you have episodes dealing with racism [1], AIDS [2][3], philosophy of mind and rights [4], euthanasia [5][6][7] and much more. Star Wars paints a black and white picture of morality, whereas Star Trek often reveals shades of grey [8][9]. Having a TV record allows them to have a variety of stories. This is like the problem above, Star Wars is all about the Sith/Force/Jedi. It is one clear and common good v. evil trope [10]. Star Trek is about exploration, the TV format allows them to have a variety of enemies, problems, and characters. The TV format also allows for deeper character development.

Effects wise, maybe Star Wars does beat early Star Trek when comparing it to older films. Although, those movies aren't suppose to have big space wars like Star Wars does.

With Star Wars, there's doubt that the prequels were originally conceived. There seems to be a lot of mistakes in the retconning, which create plot holes [12].

I conclude that Star Trek is philosophically superior, has a better amount of stories, better character development, and less problems with its retconning.

I don't think Trollerpro is going to ever post. He joined three days ago and that was the last time he was one.

An all-out war. But, I REALLY know nothing about Star Trek. I don't know anything about Star Trek.

Battle as in who would win in a space battle? You'd have to specify who in star trek, as there are a multitude of combatants. I'd think the Borg or Dominion would do the best. The Federation might win, but I'm not sure.

I'd want to do a Star Wars vs Star Treck in battle, but I feel like I don't know enough about Star Trek.

Can you directly BSH1 to this debate first. I bet he'd make an interesting opponent. His Avatar is even StarTrek related.
