Survey: Star Trek... or Star Wars? Looking for Opinions! My Choice - The Light Side, Star Trek Personally, I've got to pick Star Trek. And while I know I'll be in the minority, here's why I picked it: It's a vision of what our future could be. Sure, it's Science Fiction, but think about all the basis it has in reality! It's a champion for civil rights, for which it has a famous history. It has alone broken records and boldly gone places in television that at the time were unheard of (Ahem, Lt. Uhura). Not only that, but if you get into the plot, it's filled with complex characters, morals and more. It takes basic ideas and turns them into works of art, in every single episode. When I contrast this with Star Wars, I find the plot more shallow. That isn't to say that they both have their pros and cons, and that Star Wars definitely beats Star Trek on some points... but the central theme in Star Wars has always been and will always continue to be "Light vs Dark," (a note that Star Wars DOES expand onto multiple themes and storylines and is complex as well) whereas with Star Trek you've got these CONSTANTLY branching out themes, hundreds of different storylines, and a plethora of spin-offs. Whether you're watching The Next Generation (this dude), The Original Series, or maybe even the newest 2019-Present Star Trek Discovery, you'll find varying themes, motives, characters, and morals which at the end of the day when the conflict of every episode is resolved, leave you with a feeling of wonder... could we be like that? It takes the idea of "Space Travel" and expands on it. Uses it to show what we could be as a society in the future. Free of poverty, famine, natural disaster... Accepting of everything and anything someone wants to become. Unified as humans on Earth... Imagine! The Argument for Star Wars - Compiled from responses. NOTE: These arguments were compiled from you guys! I've written them out in first person to make them easier to understand, but they're your thoughts, not mine. Star Wars is a very captivating franchise. Having watched both, I find both story-lines intriguing. However, I've always liked Star Wars more. I've found the whole concept of the force and everything more interesting than Star Trek's concept(s) throughout the years. While Star Trek has got multiple spin offs, Star Wars has many as well, and they give you great insights into specific details not covered in the main films. Star Wars also has a large variety of games, such as Star Wars Battlefront II & Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. And that's not even touching on the lego games! It's got something for everyone across all walks of life. In terms of Graphics, it should come as no surprise that Star Wars is more attention-grabbing and has a higher budget, making them nicer. Not only this but myself, like many other people have been "raised" with Star Wars. It's pop culture. Star Trek doesn't have that. Everyone and their brother knows Star Wars, because it's been a generational story from Dad to Son (and Mom to Son), since it came out... Success after success. I find that the concept of "Light vs. Dark" in star wars is quite intriguing.
