Yes. But you're in good company.
I suspect that the Star Wars vs. Star Trek rivalry is largely a myth. Most science fiction fans have probably enjoyed a fair amount of both, as well as ample amounts of Planet of the Apes, Terminator, Aliens, The Matrix, and probably Harry Potter as well.

They're not sports teams. You don't have to root for one against the other.
Yeah, back in the 70s my friends and I were devouring any information about Star Wars and every other SF film or series being made at the time. We never thought of them as rivals for Star Trek. It was more SF!!!!! Yay!!!! When TMP came out we didn't suddenly stop going to Star Wars films..
Exactly. I saw the original SW trilogy with the same college friends I saw TMP and WRATH OF KHAN with, along with EXCALIBUR, CONAN THE BARBARIAN, and CAT PEOPLE!

Heck, as I recall, I saw THE PHANTOM MENACE on opening night with a whole gang of STAR TREK authors. None of us thought we were crossing enemy lines or anything.
