10 Reasons why Star Wars is better than Star Trek

TEN REASONS WHY STAR WARS IS BETTER THAN STAR TREK

10. I've never heard anyone in Star Wars brag about knowing a ship like the back of his hand and then hit his head on an overhang.

9. James Earl Jones' voice is not as irritating as Majel Barret's.

8. Compared to Darth Vader, Q is just too melodramatic.

7. Compared to Vader, Khan is just too high-strung.

6. Star Wars isn't afraid to put the women in charge (ex. Leia, Mon Mothma, Admiral Daala, etc.).

5. In Star Wars, dead is dead. None of this Spock-Vulcan-resurrection bullcrap.

4. In Star Trek, to fix something you need to know about Dilythium Crystals and Anti-matter enducers and Isolinear Chips and yadda yadda yadda. In Star Wars, the only thing you need to know is that THIS one goes here, THAT one goes there!!

3. Those Ewoks aren't as annoying as those damn tribbles, plus they make better fighters too. The tribbles are only good for target practice.

2. In Star Trek, the main reason that the Borg are such a big threat is that they can adapt to laser fire, and block it. Yeah, right. Let's see how they adapt to a pissed off Wookie ripping their arms off.

1. George Lucas and John Williams.

Cool. Except number 5 isn't exactly true. The Emperor came back. Boba Fett came back and all those clones let people stay alive. True these are just EU, so it doesn't really count. Never-mind

Those top ten lists are everywhere, for any genre.

Star Wars is for nerds too, guys. Sorry!

Here is a reverse list- why Trek is better than Wars:

10. Deanna Troi discarded the bun after one season. Princess Leia still has those donut braids.

9. Worf's speech is at least intelligible, but Harrison Ford has to translate for Chewbacca.

8. Star Trek villains do NOT have asthma.

7. Star Wars spawned "Battlestar Galactica." The worst Star Trek ever did was "Babylon Five."

6. Spock-- 'nuff said.

5. Star Trek-- the first space shuttle. Star Wars-- a hare-brained nuclear defense system.

4. Kirk met "God" and told him off; Sisko met Q and decked him flat; Luke Skywalker met Yoda and was speechless.

3. Star Wars androids look like electronic trash cans on wheels. Star Trek androids look like some people's ideal in masculine beauty.

2. Star Wars: Princess Leia. Star Trek: Lt. Uhura, Nurse Chapel, Yeo. Rand, Lt. Saavik, Cmr. Troi, Dr. Crusher, Lt. Yar, Ens. Ro, Dr. Pulaski, Nurse Ogawa, Amb. K'ehleyr, Amb. Lwaxana Troi, Maj. Kira, Lt. Dax, Kai Winn, Lursa, B'etor, Cmr. Sela, Vash, Adm. Netcheyev, Cpn. Janeway, Lt. Torres, Kes. Hmm. . .

1. Star Trek consists of 9 movies and 5 TV series, a total of approximately 375 hours, a figure climbing at warp speed. Star Wars, despite its following, is limited to 6 movies.

And here is another (some crossover)

10 More enemies to deal with.
9 Any of the Enterprizes from C- E could blow the #$%* out of a Star Distroyer
8 More realistic physics
7 Star Trek Does not need a space station the size of a small moon to destroy a planet
6 More women and more attractive Women
5 Star Trek does not need to re-release their moves again with three minutes of footage.
4 More novels and Books
3 Instead of getting strangled by Darth Vader foolish Captains get promoted to admiral.
2 Multi-racial armed forces in the Federation
1 Thirdy years/ five series, over a hundered novals and other books as well as nine movies!

Just doing all this in the interest of balance...

Biased, eh?

Why can't we all just get along etc...

You're lucky I don't start giving you all Dr. Who and Babylon 5 ones. Ooh, I can hear Finti's contempt already.

Star Trek is just for nerds. Star Wars is for nerds, but it's also for normal people. The subtle difference.

10) This shows that Star Wars characters aren't sucked in my nasty appearance cliches.

9) I enjoyed this reason, not only did it shoot down Star Trek for a lack of creativity, it also gave props to Lucas for having a language not comprehensible by us average humans.

7. Star Wars spawned "Battlestar Galactica." The worst Star Trek ever did was "Babylon Five."


8. Instead they have horrible acne.

7. On the contrary, Star Trek did Star Trek, 'Nuff said.


quote:
6. Spock-- 'nuff said.

5. Star Trek-- the first space shuttle. Star Wars-- a hare-brained nuclear defense system.

4. Kirk met "God" and told him off; Sisko met Q and decked him flat; Luke Skywalker met Yoda and was speechless.


6. Considering I didn't read the entire Top 10 list yet, and I say #6 after doing #7...the irony of this is rather weird. On the contrary, humans in Star Wars don't need Rogaine.

5. Star Trek--Not one movie on the Top 50 of all time. Star Wars--All 4 movies in the Top 15 of all time. (ANH is #2, due to Harry Potter)

4. So moving confrontations are shot down by violence on television?

quote:

3. Star Wars androids look like electronic trash cans on wheels. Star Trek androids look like some people's ideal in masculine beauty.

2. Star Wars: Princess Leia. Star Trek: Lt. Uhura, Nurse Chapel, Yeo. Rand, Lt. Saavik, Cmr. Troi, Dr. Crusher, Lt. Yar, Ens. Ro, Dr. Pulaski, Nurse Ogawa, Amb. K'ehleyr, Amb. Lwaxana Troi, Maj. Kira, Lt. Dax, Kai Winn, Lursa, B'etor, Cmr. Sela, Vash, Adm. Netcheyev, Cpn. Janeway, Lt. Torres, Kes. Hmm. . .


3. We call those people "Future patients at the Sunny Acres Home for the mentally deranged"

2. Once again, this actually backfires on Star Trek. It only shows that they need a cast of 15+ women to keep their audience in check.

Yet...A New Hope raked in more money than all 9 of those Star Trek movies.

And Lucas doesn't make TV Shows for one reason. He enjoys laughing at Star Trek for pushing out another TV show once their old one loses their main audience.
