Not for me.

I did the ol' slingshot-around-the-sun-trip and walked out on it a year early.

No. Your date walked out of Star Wars because of you were certainly no gentleman that night.

Love them both actually. This Star Trek vs. Star Wars stuff is a big joke to me.

It's basically a P!ssing contest.

I like BOTH Trek and Star Wars. I have every Star Wars movie on DVD. I have every Trek movie on two disc DVD set. I own all 7 seasons of TNG and 1 season of ENT. I enjoy them for different reasons. I wouldn't mind more adventure in Trek. In that way I have no problem with this new movie being a bit more like Star Wars, but I do like Trek for reasons that are not shared with Star Wars. I would NOT want those values, the "soul" of Trek to be lost simply for it to do well at the box office.

I don't want to sound elitest, but I don't think the majority of movie goers "get" Trek. When people are confronted with something they don't understand (they don't understand why we like it) then they put labels on it in order to make it less "threatening". When people in school in called me a nerd for liking Trek, I told them they could call me whatever they wanted. I would tell them the same reason they came to me for for help with math homework was the same reason they didn't "get" Trek. I do think the "nerd" stereotype came out of a bit of truth. Most Fans of Trek I have met are thoughtful, sincere, sensitive, and yes...even intelligent people. If that is "nerdy", so be it.

I never got the notion that some fans have that you can only like one (und precisely von!!) SF series. It's like saying you can't like Boston Legal cause you already watch Law and Order, and both shows have lawyers in 'em.
I love Trek, Wars, Babylon 5, Dr. Who, you name it. I say, give me all the SF I can handle, and then give me a little bit more.

They both have their appeal.
Oh no. That death star assualt was stupid by default and boring. No musical accompliment at all and completely unrealistic. But you're right better than ...most things in Trek.

I wouldn't say that.
It was simple...the plot of the movie was "Save the Girl;Save the Planet."

You can "love" both but if you love either you take a shot to your intelligence.
It's just entertainment. I try not to invest that much emotion into either franchise.
