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.
The one fan feud which always made me chuckle: "Star Trek" versus "Space:1999" back in the 70s. For those who can, check out the early Starlogs or fanzines where some went at it.
I never understood it as, back then, decent science-fiction series' were few and far between (here in the United States). I mean Space:1999 looked good, had a fine cast and somewhat enteraining stories (though I haven't seen an episode since it went out of production).
