Default The way Trek was ment to be...??

I mean common, what came first...star trek or star wars? I think Abrams is gonna make Starwars look like piddle on the side walk. Star Trek WILL now get the treatment it deserves as something better than average as it was ment to be. Your thoughts?

Actually the two franchises are far more interwoven than one might think. Lucas admits to being a Trek fan himself and,drawing inspiration from Star Trek for his own scifi epic and Star Trek wouldn't have had it's series of films if not for the success of Star Wars. Don't think for a second that Paramount wasn't influenced by the success of the prequel trilogy when deciding to bring Trek back to the screen again, either. This new film is sure to inspire endless debate in Trek v Wars circles but really does it matter? Both franchises are great and they have both survived this long because they are great.

Although they have connections Star Wars was more pure cinema whereas Trek was about ideas and reflections of the world we live in, so they are different enough for me not to treat them as equals, because to me they aren't.

Gene Roddenberry probably felt "Star Wars" was a great movie, and he used it to help him make the "Star Trek" movies. I think we already know that this "Star Wars vs. Star Trek" stuff is complete bull****.

My nice comparison: Insurrection is pure Trek. Nemesis is pure Wars

When it comes to the two being interwoven, who does the SFX for almost every star trek movie, show, episode or anything now?
