True Kaboom. I can see why they're often compared, but they are VERY different franchises.

They are the same genre.
Star Wars dethroned it'self. The Seat is currently occupied by Stargate.

That won't happen untill Trek gets another series out.
Stargate is hitting series 3, Stargate Universe.
And with movies on the way.

All good points. Star Trek has been and always be #1 for me, it makes me think. I think we compare the two because Lucas has been ramming it down our throats for years with sub-par "prequels", toys, cartoons. I guess I just want Trek to get some more mainstream "love".

Series-wise, does anyone see Trek going animated, like Clone Wars? I personally have not seen CW, but do remember watching Trek TAS.

Honestly, I don't mind Clone Wars and think it's better than the prequels (only because it's more of an adventure series like the original trilogy). The prequels were just so bloated with useless information and characters (Jar Jar).

As for Stargate, I can't stand the series, but I liked the original movie.

Haven't watched Star Gate. I have a real hard time getting into other sci fi, although I loved Firefly/Serenity. I remember Babylon 5, Seaquest. I cannot stand Dr. Who though.
