Re: Will Star Wars ruin the Star Trek franchise?
I don't know about that. I think it has much more to do with the fact that both franchises are incredibly successful. If either Star Trek or Star Wars was some niche/cult little thing like Farscape for example, do you think the two fanbases would be so eager to compare them?
Regarding the quality, if you just want to look at the movies, I think Star Wars has higher peaks and lower valleys while Star Trek is more even. However that doesn't take into account the hundreds and hundreds of hours of television Star Trek has produced, much of it pretty damn good. So I guess just by the sheer amount of good content, I have to think Star Trek is better.
