Miranda wrote a post about how Star Trek is better than Star Wars, but allow me to tell you why I (and most of the world) think Star Wars is better than Star Trek.
Star Trek is a very technical series. It feels like it was written just for science fiction lovers. Star Wars appeals to lots of people with different tastes. Action for action-lovers, humor, romances for the romantics, Ewoks for the children (or anyone born after the Ewok Line – hahahahahaha!), and music you’ll be singing the rest of your life.
Star Wars is surrounded by so many themes about love, family, sacrifice, and willpower. Star Trek just isn’t entertaining enough to convey those themes to me.
This is just my personal opinion, but Star Wars is simply more awesome.
