Star Wars vs Star Trek



6 comments:

  1. Actually, the two most succesful science fiction series are Doctor Who and Star Trek. No one even cares about Star Wars.

    1. I think you mean Science Fiction "TV" series.

    2. Actually, merchandising tied to movies was virtually unsuccessful until Star Wars came along. The dykstraflex camera was invented especially for Star Wars and was digitally controlled and allowed for 7 axes of motion. This camera earned John Dykstra, Al Miller, and Jerry Jeffress Academy Awards in 1978.

  2. The Star Trek universe typically focuses on a narrow band of military vessels, Capital ships of you like. (I am aware that there are fighters in the broader canon, but as a general rule, the smallest war-craft seen regularly is the Defiant class, akin to a frigate/fast attack cruiser. The Star Wars universe offers a more complete navy with vehicles ranging from single occupant fighters to large mother-ship type carriers. It's difficult to compare the two with any accuracy.

    1. True, but there was another Side-by-Side Comparison of Star Trek vs Star Wars when they were comparing their Warfare Technologies. Shields, Armor, Guns, Warheads, et cetera.

  3. AFTER the 9th Episode of Star Wars, Will there be a 'Star Trek vs Star Wars' Movie? I've got a BASIC Starting Synopsis/Scenario, but I want the Numbers to Speak for itself.
