    I think it could have something to do with what #1 said in some episode, (this isn't exactly what he said but close to it) "Hahaha they can't even dent our shields, they are using lasers"

    Since Starwars uses lasers it is an assumption that the star trek would win a fight against star wars, wich would make the fans mad.

    just an idea. I only watched 1 episode of star trek and that had a bunch of mutating furry things with Kirk giving them to the aliens who hate them or something like that.

    If you want more responses you might want to try posting this in Star Wars Miscellanius forum... It's SW related so I don't think it's JCC material anyway. Just a suggestion ;)
    As for the answer to that, I have no idea. I've never watched Star Trek much, so I can't really form an opinion on it.

    I'm a Trekkie and a Star Wars Geek. I've been watching both avidly since I was like 3 or 4. I've seen every episode of The Next Generation, and most of the episodes of DS9 and Voyager. Don't watch Enterprise though, I find it very bland and IHO, stupid. Love Andromada though, I know it's not Star Trek, but it is Gene Roddenberry. ;) And I've of course seen every episode of Star Wars to the point where I quote all of them as I watch them.

    trekkies probably hate SW because they know we have the superior product and the coolest characters.


    They also hate us because of the movies...SW has made more than ST has in only 5 movies versus 10 movies and 5 tv series. :p


    Just my humble opinion

    I don't understand. Maybe it's that two "competing" star-related merchandises can't get along?
    I like the Original Trek and watched tNG for several years before I got bored. DS9 didn't appeal to me at all, and the newer series aren't aired here at all.
    Anyways, I like the Klingons especially. They're great. With great Attitude (with a capital A) and a nice language :D

    If Trek didn't have Klingons, I wouldn't watch it.

    I wouldn't say I hate ST ... but I only watch it when I happen to be in front of the TV when it's showing, and then again only when I'm sure nothing else remotely good is on. :p

    I just find it boring and not too realistic. That's all.

    Not too realistic?! And Star Wars is? ;)

    I think the great thing that both SW and ST does is that it faces many global/emotional/moral issues within a different world with different people, yet also allowing the watchers to escape in the fantasy of it all. However, I do think that SW faces these things better. SW is also more imaginative, I think. ST is becoming a repition of the millions of scifi shows out there.

    I'm both a ST and SW fan, gotta say, but SW has always won with me. :D I mean, let's face it, people, which is cooler? Klingon, or a sith? Federation, or the jedi? No need to even answer those questions. ;)

    "which is cooler? Klingon, or a sith? Federation, or the jedi? "
    Well, in movies any Sith is way cooler than the Klingons, but if we're talking about those EU-darkjedi-13-in-a-dozen-siths, then I'll choose the Klingons. NuQneH!
    And IMO the Federation is as lame as the rebellion, and I don't support either.

    Anyways, the best thing in Trek is the Klingon Empire. (I think I'm repeating myself... [face_plain] )

    I say not too realistic because it looks too ... I don't know, sterile. And the aliens look like normal humans with face putty. Which they are. :p

    The aliens look like "face putty" because a T.V. budget is not nearly as big as the budget for SW movies (especially the prequels).

    I don't hate Trek I love it. There are some out there who think SW has been around longer and that ST is a rip-off which is completely wrong cuz Trek's been around since the 60s and SW came out in the late 70s. I love both though.

    Why Does Star Trek hate Star Wars

    Thats an easy one

    When Star Wars came out, it over shadowed Star trek and its Fans and left them as being geeky and unwanted.
    AT the time it was ever so cool to be part of Star Wars and that 20 century fox wanted to see more of Star wars films produced. In the case of Star Trek the company that owed the rights wanted to discarded it forever because it wasn't making anything.
    Thus the fans of ST blames SW for changing Sci-fi forever.
    Also SW at the time was the Titanic version in the 70's
    everyone was talking, watching it and buying stuff - you can't run away from it.

    SW didn't really had the Scientific Tecno that Trekkies needed to stimulated them so thats another fact.

    -----------------------------------------------------
    AS FOR ME this what I think

    All of Original ST,DS9 and films 1-6 are Fanastics
    Enterprise and generation series are good
    but Voyger and the Generation films are so awful they will waste your time so avoid them like the plague.
    I hate Star trek for another reasons and won't start.


    As for some of the fans who provoke fights(they know who they are !):
    for the love of God seriously GET A LIFE ! its only a film ! [face_plain]

    My ex was a Trekkie so that's more than enough reason to hate it :p

    Seriously I don't really hate Star Trek I just don't find it stimulating enough... all this run the Epsom routers through the jello transmogrifiers ARRRGGGGHHHHH why wasn't that done on the first place to produce a superior weapon... it gets annoying after a while.

    I do however adore the Klingon's, Cardassians and the Borg... but then I like the bad guys ;)

    I did not know there was hatred between the two groups. I love both Star Wars and Star Trek (although, I'm a Jedi/Solo want-to-be first). I don't know why we need to compare the two, other than they both are SciFi "space" related........But I think they are more different than similar (in a good way).

    Trekkies may not like Star Wars because the Star Trek films were never as popular as the Star Wars films...........But on TV Star Trek rules!! I'm not sure if Star Wars could ever be popular as a TV show. But who knows?

    I openly admit that I love both. However, while I love all of Star Wars, I am a very picky Trekkie. I love DS9 and the related novels, while the original series, Next Generation, and Voyager etc. never did quite grab me.
