I'm more partial to Star Trek regardless. As I understand it, Star Wars Universe has the longer history dating back 1000's and 1000's of years. The Star Trek Universe only goes back a few hundred years.

Starwars because I said so and those Ewoke things are cute as' :)  And darth vador is awesome and because " Luke I am your father " and lots of other reasons. Mostly because I'm right though.

I personally prefer Star Wars to Star Trek. My main reason is that I enjoy the 'space fantasy' element that Star Wars provides, whilst Star Trek is more focused on being traditional "science-fiction".
Why I like Star Wars better than Star Trek The heroes of Star Wars make it stand out for me. Han Solo and Luke Skywalker are fearless, swashbuckling, action heroes. They capture that child-like sense of adventure that exists in every one of us.

Star Trek's heroes (Captain Picard and Mr. Spock for example) use rationale and intellect to overcome challenges.

Whilst this might be a more sensible approach in real life, I think it makes for less compelling entertainment on screen.
Star Wars v Star Trek Both Star Wars and Star Trek portray worlds filled with alien planets and exciting fantasy creatures.

However, the Star Wars vision of space and future is so grand, it reminds me of an epic saga like Beowulf.

Star Trek, on the other hand, is more of a "made-for-TV" sci-fi adventure that, whilst still captivating, is relatively one-dimensional in comparison.

Having said all this, the recent Star Trek movie released in 2009 really went some way towards breaking boundaries. An, given the trepidation with which Star Wars fans greeted the news that Disney would be responsible for producing the next 3 instalments, we could be on the verge of seeing a really big change in the battle for supremacy.

I don't like either of them. I'm sorry, I just don't. I'm not a fan of Sci-Fi movies like that. They make me feel like I'm the one who's in the movie.

Star Trek as TV and Stars Wars as a movie.
