Re: Star Wars v Star Trek

I don't know.. I've met a few people who are, I'm just not one of them. They are different while being the same, and having grown up with a Star Trek loving mother I know I just like Star Wars better. (Ps. She's a Picard fan too. )

Re: Star Wars v Star Trek

I used to be a bigger fan of Star Trek back in the 90s but now I am leaning towards Star Wars in particular Boba Fett and the Mando scene.

Re: Star Wars v Star Trek

Would be pretty easy to be fans of the Mandos and the Klingons, though I'm not really one personally.  Though I LOVE their Bird of Pray ships  big_smile

Re: Star Wars v Star Trek

Klingons? Like a cling on? Sorry, but it can be hard for me to regard Star Trek without chuckling (no offense fans, my bro's one or at least he was) , mainly because the first episode of Star Trek I saw (and the last) was when they traveled back in time to 1985. Yipee. Must've been directly after a budget cut. Needless to say, I was not impressed and in fact disappointed after hearing all the good things about it that I had.

Re: Star Wars v Star Trek

I hear ya, MM.  I wasn't a fan at all, but my Mom was/is and got me into it some.  I started with the Picard shows though; those were pretty good.  It's pretty silly though in a lot of ways.  To get out of a tight spot, which happend EVERY DAMN EPISODE, they'd invent things on the spot that the brains who built the ship didn't think of; they CONSTANTLY increased their sensor range or something tech like that magically *you'd think if they COULD increase the effectiveness of something, they'd have done it before getting caught in whatever trouble they got into  tongue;*   and they always had silly crap like telapathics etc.  I like the Star Wars way of doing things much better, more western.

But the Klingons were pretty fun, and as I said the Bird of Pray is a Bad-@$$ looking ship.  All in all not a bad show, and some of the movies were really good

Re: Star Wars v Star Trek

Well, I love The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine (Both Star Trek of course) and Star Wars. I'm still in the closet with Star Trek though, seeing as I'm more of a Die hard Star Wars fan than a Trekkie.

So yeah, it's possible to enjoy both.

Re: Star Wars v Star Trek

Star Trek can be fun, but I have to go with SW--without that I wouldn't be here. It was my introduction to sci-fi, and remains my favorite. It also was more believable, more real.

Despite the Force, blasters, AT-ATs, galaxies far far away, and the occasional gay Mandalorian * tongue, * I have to agree in a weird sort of way; at least as far as the movies go.   

I was turned off a little to Star Trek by their ability to ALWAYS get out of the most IMPOSSIBLE situation buy improving something that should already have been just about perfect or increasing the range of something that should have been maxed, or using some damn telapathic *don't ask me why, but I just hate mind readers in my SciFi; they killed StarShip Troopers for me.............them and the sucky acting/lines/actors  tongue

Not sure how Star Wars is more real, but I just have that feeling for it.  Maybe I've just watched it too many times and I've forgoten it IS SciFi too   tongue

No offense, but this site needs fewer 'self appointed' Mods.  It's great that we look out for eachother and try to keep thing organized, but some of the 'self-made-mods' *not really you Karson, but some I've seen* are damn near threatening with their comments

Just mho

Re: Star Wars v Star Trek

Well I found Star Wars before I found Star Trek. I did really enjoy Voyager but other than that I haven't really got into Star Trek. I just tend to prefer the Star Wars universe.

As for moving this thread. I suppose I could do so... tongue

Honestly, I DIDN'T have you in mind when I made that comment.  It's one thing to try to help members see what they're doing wrong in a more-or-less friendly manner, but it's another to come off as running the site and/or be almost threatoning with said 'help' *things I've never seen you do Draco.* 

I'm just trying to remind EVERYBODY that we have our mighty Alor Aaron and some great Mods on this site for helping members to understand who the site is run and organized, and that we should limit our help to constructive suggestions rather then making outright demands
