I think the "magic" of Star Wars beats Star Trek, hands down. :)

I'd still love to see the fight between Storm troopers (who never hit anything) and Red Shirts (who always die). It will have to include a few Wilhelm screams, of course!

Star Trek! No shields so just transport a dolop of antimatter into the middle of the Death Star or Star Destroyer...

Man, that sounds like a good book to read. I haven't put the ships/polical units against each other, just the movies. I now wonder what kind of fight the Falcon could have against the Defiant...

Space opra vs. true Sci Fi. I might have voted for Star Wars, but midichlorians totally killed the magic for me and a lot of other people. Whereas logic is enduring and so is my love of Trek.

Star Wars all the way on this one. I mean how could win against The Force. I just don't see how that can be accomplished.

Matt Forbeck is an awesome writer and a member of my alma mater, the University of Michigan.

I would love a signed copy of this book.

Give me Trek! Or even Firefly given how much Episodes I-III piss me off, not to mention the updates to the original three.

I'm a Trekkie, but my sons & grandsons are Star Wars-- I'd have to share!!

It's evenly split in my house. DH and I are Trek, and our kids are Star Wars. But we're bigger, so Trek wins. Plus, I just have to work a little harder to hook them on Trek.

I don't see any need for a competition. Both are great and timeless. Both represent fully realized alien universes and deeply human stories. I think the only real insightful drama from this Star Trek/Star Wars era has come from science-fiction. Mainstream fiction and drama (mostly) suck. I thank the Force everyday for Gene Roddenberry and George Lucas! What would my live have been without them?
