Answer for question 4318.

Star Trek or Star Wars?
I'm not sure why everyone thinks these two franchises are comparable. One is a series of (so far) six movies, the other consists of five TV series three of which ran fro seven seasons each, one for three seasons and one for four, as well as a total of twelve movies. Yeah, they are both science fiction, and they both have a lot of fans, they both have books series based on them and a whole load of fanworks, but they are not an either or thing.

When DS9 was out at around the same time as Babylon five, that was understandable. I mean, both series set on space stations at least. But asking people which is better out of Star Trek and Star Wars is like asking them to compare Twilight and Daybreakers. What? They both have vampires in them. Well, sort of.

Having said all that though, I'm a trekkie through and through. I like Star Wars, but I didn't grow up with it like I did Star Trek. I got hooked on reruns of the original series on Sky 1 when I was at primary school, and obsessively recorded every single one on video, then I moved through the series one by one as they came out, I went to a Star Trek fan group every month where we watched the new episodes that hadn't been shown in England yet, and I had a subscription to a Star Trek magazine. Back then, Star Wars was just something I watched once when my parents rented it...
