    First of all there is no shame in being a Trekker. I really don't get SW fans who bash ST. Maybe its because they just don't like scifi in general and thus are only attracted to SW because its more fantasy than scifi.

    Anyways, I am both a Trekker and a Warsie, and proud of both things.

    Many other members are also both Trekkers and Warsies, including such luminaries as Rafa, Amy and Darth_Guimo amongst others.

    I know there are also many others that although the are not Trekkers, they enjoy watching ST.

    Im no way hardcore fan of Star Trek. However, I enjoy watchin ST: TNG. I like it. Of course not as much as SW but I do like it. :D

    PS: As Corran said, there shall not be shame for Trekkies :p

    Thanks for the backup, Xanatos.


    I am truly a hardcore Trekker. I own an uniform (I also have a Jedi costume) and I so much useless ST trivia in my head that I could be a guest Geek in "Beat the Geek" (I knew all the answers that the guest Trekker geek didn't know!)

    BTW, the correct term for "Star Trek enthusiast" according to the dictionary is "Trekker" not "Trekkie." (I am not kidding!)

    Also, remember that there is a lot of SW stuff that is a direct ripoff from ST. (From Oola to "proton" torpedoes. . .)


    And yes, George Lucas is a Trekker. Just ask him. . .

    Soy un warsie, no se casi nada de ST, pero admiro el fanatismo de ellos. Yo soy igual de celoso con mi SW y respeto igual a los trekkerss. Claro que si sigo jangeando con pedro y rafa tarde o temprano me aprendere algunas silabas de klingon...;)

    concuerdo contigo. Hay que admirar el celo que tienen con ST. Y no es por menos, ST es algo grande(un gogante) en el sci-fi universe.

    With Klingons, there is no such thing as gentle!

    LOL


    I would really like to see a street fight between a a Wookie and a Klingon, though!

    I'm both a Trekker and a Warsie.

    And yes, that would be a fun thing to watch. My bet is on the wookie though, he can rip of the klingon's hands.

    What would you rather choose, to be a captain of an enterprise or a Jedi or some other creature in SW?

    I would choose to be a captain of the Enterprise, since I can go to the Holodeck and just program a SW scenario.

    Starfleet Captain hands down. . .

    A couple of those dudes could beat a Jedi. . .

    I mean, there is no way a Jedi can block more than two phaser blasts at the same time. . .

    And besides, SW ships SUCK when compared to ST ships. . .

    Any ST ship could kick an ISDs ass!

    Yo quiero ser piloto de X-wing...Fighter technology is way better in SW, digo verdad es que nunca he visto un fighter en ST.

    JB, en ST no se NECESITAN fighers! Las naves grandes se mueven super rapido, no como las se SW que son lentas con pantalones.


    Un escuadron de naves de SW no le harian nada a una nave de ST. Primero, los torpedos y los phasers tienen tracking. Segundo, los shields de ST aguantan lasers sin problema alguno.

    STAR WARS RUlES! WOOKIE will smash Klingon! And another difference that makes SW cooler than Trekkie, Straship clothing vs. Jedi Clothing. I rest my case. And phaser, shmeizer.

    Whats a Straship???

    LOL



    Anyways, isn't this thread a bit out of place and kinda inviting to flaming and bashing?

    Not that I don't enjoy SW vs ST conversations with rational, intelligent people. . . *g*

    No mano, no son tan grandes como un ISD...those things are HUGE.

    Una relacion de tamaños. . .

    El warp nacelle (el tubito de atras, detras de el platillo) de la Enterprise de la serie original (constitution class) es de el tamano de la estatua de la libertad.


    La Enterprise-E (la de las pelis nuevas) es una Sovereing Class, la clase mas grande de Starfleet ahora. Un nacelle de la Sovereing Class es un poco mas grande que una constitution class.


    En tamano. . .la Sovereing Class es como 750 metros de largo. (2,500 pies mas o menos)


    Un ISD es poco mas de el doble con 1,600 metros de largo.

    Un MonCal es de 1,200 m

    Una Nebulon B Frigate es de unos 300 m

    Un Blockade Runner es de unos 150 m

    Si por eso, un SSD es 8KM!!! Y tiene un crew como de 550,000.

    En verdad los de ST son mas reality based, pq un gobierno construyendo naves asi de inmensas no tendria dinero para mas nada.

    Sip, ese es el problema de comparar tecnologia de SW y ST. La gente de ST se esmera pq la tecnologia sea lo mas science based posible. . .la de SW es mas fantasia.

    I used to be a huge trekkie, especially TNG. I also enjoyed the whole DS9 Dominion War storyline. I kind of liked Voyager, it wasn't the best trek, but still better than 95% of the crap on TV now a days. I was VERY PO'd when Cable TV of San Juan removed UPN from it's lineup. I missed the final seasons of Voyager and I've watched only ONE episode of Enterprise (the newest series), back when I was in Washington for a week back in May.

    So it's not like I'm not interested anymore , it's just that I can't watch it! I'm still looking forward to the new TNG movie, though.

    Still, SW is better. ;)

    Enterprise is the best ST series so far... IMHO.

    Para mi, despues de los ultimos 3 seasons de DS9 (space battles! space battles!) Enterprise es lo mejor que hay.

    Enterprise sucks! no es por chavar pero el primer capitulo fue el unico bueno.....despues de ahi it was downhill! Y si Sidious pudo montar un imperio en SW imaginate lo que haria en ST, lo unico que lo podria para seria un Q! pero ya eso es ponerse hablar casi de dioses and that my friends.......es mas fantasia que la de SW!
