Default Will this Star Trek "dethrone" Star Wars?

The simple question is, do you think this Star Trek movie will finally dethrone in a sense Star Wars as the more popular mainstream sci-fi? What I'm thinking is, all those kids that show up at my door for candy (seems like a lost art, trick or treating not at the mall) in Star Wars garb will be donning Trek gear? I certainly hope so! Let's hope Trek becomes king of the hill for 25+ years.

This Star Trek will be the most successful and I would bet good money on that. However, I don't think it will come close to Star Wars numbers or popularity. Perhaps, it will get a little bit closer, but there will be no dethroning (I wish there would be...)

I'm not the one who originally typed that... The initial question is whether Trek will "dethrone" Star Wars...

I wish it would, but I don't think this movie will be able to generate the money. I will say that the new Trek will certainly kick the Star Wars prequels' ***.

There's an outside chance however, since I think Star Wars is now kinda old and very kiddie what with the cartoon and everything...

I'll also put it this way, Star Trek has it's best chance ever of being a complete mainstream success with this movie. The buzz in the media is great, we can only hope that people who never gave the franchise a chance actually give it one this time.

Why do we even compare the two? They're barely in the same genre, and they have entirely different takes and 'feels.'
