"If you're a fan of either series, then guess what? You're a geek, just like me. If you're arguing over which is better, however, you are a looser. Big difference.To get into the nuances of either series would take forever, but the concept of compairing these two is silly. First of all, any preferece would be a matter of opinion. If you like big explosions and an almost western style of Good vs. Evil, you would tend toward Star Wars. If you like a more technical delivery of tougher moral choices, Star Trek is your game. Compairing them because they both have "star" in title is ridiculous at best, as they are in very different sub-genres. It would be like "Star Man" vs. "Star Search".Star Wars is a space opera, and is comperable to Dune or Battlestar Galactica, two sources Lucas has admitted to drawing heavily from. Star Trek falls into a military sci-fi, and is best compaired to Babylon 5 or Andromeda. A clear case of apples and oranges, it makes as much sense as compairing "The Good the Bad and the Ugly" with "Moulin Rouge".In short, get a life."

"Hi, These other guys aren't even talking about the dvd! All they talk about is whether or not there should be a Star Wars vs Star Trek. If you've actually bought this dvd please write a review. If you want to debate on an issue you have then go to a message board or something but don't do it here. This is for people that want to buy the dvd and are looking for another's opinion on the "DVD". Thanks"

"Anybody who wants to 'dis' either series needs to get a life. Both have major entertaining values and is just a matter of personal opinion. I personally prefer Star Trek because it is more scientifically acurate, however Star Wars is a lot of fun. The point being IT DOESN'T MATTER! But onto the review of this dvd, It is just some schmuck's way of getting a quick buck off of die hard fans of one or the other (just like this latest Jason vs. Freddie Movie). The technical side of this movie is just so bad, that unless your into home movies, I wouldn't have spent a dime on it (and didn't since I returned it and got a refund)."

"This documentary provided nothing new: no fresh interviews, no insightful information and no non-stock footage of the characters, directors and writers. I take that back. There were several original shots of long lines outside of movie theaters, taken by an obvious amateur videographer. Sadly, this is the only documentary that covers a very deep and worthwhile topic. For its lack of professionalism, the flick did raise some interesting questions, such as why hasn't Star Wars made it on the television and Star Trek has? That is very important now that George Lucas recently announced plans for a Star Wars tv series. Perhaps, a real documentary team will give this topic the attention it deserves."
