It's not about Star Trek vs Star Wars, it's about the type of toy.
They were playing with Lightsabers after all, not with Blasters. Why? Because swords are more physical, and hence more fun than laser guns where you need to imagine the fire.
An Enterprise toy model is a lot more impractical than an X-Wing or a Millenium Falcon toy. And since the Enterprise is so big, it also makes no sense to make a LEGO version out of it. Yet it works for X-Wings and TIE Fighters.
