STAR TREK movies are my first choice any day.
STAR WARS movies are not so good.
What is your preference ?

I agree there David, I too like Star Trek, in my case the original series, not so much the later adventures, though very good, I
liked Kirk, Spock and co,. my favourite character being McCoy, he reminded me in looks to a plumber I worked with, now gone,
but a great performance from Deforest Kelly. Star Wars, yes very popular, but not as "caring about the characters" as "Trek", just
my opinion folks, the TV show in my opinion, is a class act, again, dialogue, although American speaking people, is perfect, compared
to the jargon on offer today, on both sides of the Atlantic.

Yes Hugh I have always thought the acting and narrative in the Star Trek films far superior to the Star Wars films.
The acting in the Star Wars films is very cheesy and hammy by most of the cast.
Also I have always regarded the Star Trek film series as the " thinking man's" sci-fi.

I have trouble choosing, as I enjoy both. Star Wars Episodes 1-3 is not up there with Star Trek - The Voyage Home and Wrath of Khan, my two favorites of the Star Trek series, but Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars and The Force Awakens are superb in my opinion.

I can see where folk are coming from, STAR WARS for the duels and outer space fights, but I'm with David here, STAR TREK is
that we favour better definition of character parts and Philosophy, something they might try here on Earth. I have yet not to enjoy a
STAR TREK movie, as opposed to the STAR WARS prequels, which were awful.Sorry lads, but the Star Wars stuff was soon lost to me.

I enjoy both Star Trek and Star Wars for totally different reasons. When I'm in the mood for thought-provoking real science fiction I turn to Star Trek. If I'm in the mood for a non thinking roller coaster ride then I turn to Star Wars. My favorite Trek movies are The Wrath of Kahn, and The voyage Home. My favorite Star Wars is: The Empire Strikes Back.

I like Star Wars (the original) but don't love it. I only even like it because in my book it treats science fiction as just that..fiction. it doesn't pretend to allow you to believe that one day in the future this is how we will all be and these things may even happen.

It's just a fictional story and nothing more, which I like. A bit of escapism.
It also uses entertainment as its main feature objective throughout, not a bloody science lesson!

Now when it comes to any other science fiction films like Star Trek for example, or programs like Doctor Who or Hitchhikers guide for example, it's just too geeky for my taste.
I find the type of people who get bang into all this kind of stuff, far too nerdy and they appear to me, to take it all way too seriously.

If a film pretends to be nothing more than just "entertainment" in this genre, then I'm happy with it.

For anything that you need a quantum physics degree to either understand, or be entertained by and then collect just about every bit of marketing crap ever invented for it from place mats and mugs to masks that you could be arrested for wearing in public, then you can keep it for me.
