No war for me, I adore BOTH franchises - although Trek is admittedly my favourite. Conflicts of this nature between "warring" fans are fairly ridiculous IMO. Probably says quite a lot about their maturity.
Ditto. I wish Star Wars hadn't been mishandled as badly as it has been - sure, Star Trek has been through the wringer but it never was as bad as the PT. However, Clone Wars seems to be turning things around a bit. It would be nice to see both franchises being treated well for a change.

And as for the OT, just post the q's in this thread and let us respond. I don't have time/patience for email or phone interviews but I'll answer questions here.

Have to agree with this.

Trek > Wars, though.

Re: I need Star Trek Fans!! (what better place!)

I think the Star Wars/Star Trek feud is mostly a myth, but if you want to read an amusing fictional account of this burning issue, check out GEEKTASTIC, a recent collection of short stories set in the worlds of fandom. The lead story involves a star-crossed romance between a Trekkie and Star Wars fan, who hook up at a scifi convention much to the horror of their respective cliques.

Think "Romeo & Juliet" with Klingons and Jedi . . . .

It was a cute story.

Who was I chasing?

I was agreeing with Lokai. I was about to make the same point he did, but noticed he beat me to it.

Re: I need Star Trek Fans!! (what better place!)

I don't like Star Wars, but it has nothing to do with being a Star Trek fan. I'm sure if I'd never seen anything related to Star Trek, I still wouldn't care for Star Wars. I saw the first four Star Wars movies and they didn't make much of an impression on me. I thought they were okay, but forgettable. I just think they aren't my kind of thing.

The only Star Wars movie I truly hate is "Revenge of the Sith", probably because it's the only one I saw after I'd become mature enough to watch movies with a very critical eye (about the time I turned 20) rather than passively most of the time and I thought that movie failed on every level- acting, writing, directing, special effects, etc.
