dont get me wrong I enjoy the Trek movies. More so the earlier ones, but Star wars is still greater. It revolutionized Movies. It brought Advanced special-effects technology to a degree unseen before, with computerized and digitally-timed special effects. It ultimately helped to resurrect the financial viability of the science-fiction genre, a category of films that was considered frivolous and unprofitable, and brought the phrase "May the Force be with you" into common usage. How many people go around saying "live long and prosper"? none that I know of. edit: oh and greybeard. Anyone who wears those redicilous costumes is gay in my books. If we are talking about the movies. Starwars was out BEFORE lord of the rings. the first movie was out in 1977. Plus the two are absolutely nothing alike. Also Obi-wan didnt kill anakin. And what whining? I see far more yawn fests in Trek movies. With dodgy acting, predictable plots (if there even is one) and boring characters. You obviously don't know what you're talking about As a Sci-fi fan. I like all sci-fi movies, but Star Wars will always be the greatest as it has one of the best storylines ever writen and directed.
