    and star wars isn't some fiary tale story it involves internal conflicts and political degenaration as well as an awsome fan base there are clearly many more star wars fans than star trek fans

    Then why did the original Star Trek, which was produced long before Star Wars, have phasers, which it described as being superior to the obsolete lasers?

    of coarse the two most popular star wars and trek could ban the other less important star series

    No, they're not. Phasers (Starfleet weapons, anyway) can be set to various levels -- stun, heavy stun, kill, disintegrate, and so forth. Some species, such as Klingons, don't bother with stun settings. They're more refined than Han Salo's blasters. If you're interested, there's a Star Trek wikipedia with an article on phasers.

    And just because there's more Star Wars fans than Trekkies at CFC doesn't mean there are more Star Wars fans in general. ;) In any case, it doesn't influence my opinion any.

    None of the crappy Star Trek ships cant stand the chance of the mighty Death Star which can destroy a planet with a single shot!

    Right on Ironmam!!! :thumbsup:.

    Do I sense a great battle between the Star Wars fans and the trekies :hmm:. I know I am pro-Star Wars :thumbsup:.

    Those Death Stars don't have much of a kill ratio :p I'm sure it would be easy enough for our heroes in Starfleet to disable one.

    Star Wars' weapons are *blasters* not *lasers*, and that's an important distinction. The *blasters* are primarily... I forget, something like "excited gas" and the light is just a harmless byproduct. It's more than a laser, though.

    EDIT: the Borg could pwn any imperials any day, though.

    Not if the Death Star is protected by a fleet of Imperial Star Destroyers and Star Dreadnoughts along with a a ton of TIE fighters.

    I know, it can make scrap metal out of the Borg cube :D.

    Bah, the Borgs would be shaking in their little space boots when they see the Death Star :evil:.

    Oh, I don't know. A fast, tough ship like the Defiant could weave through those huge ships with ease. As a bonus, the Defiant has a cloak. And you're forgetting that the Borg have that nifty ability to adapt to energy after a few shots. Now a Jedi could do some damage on a Borg ship, especially since the Borg are pretty much space zombies -- they sort of lumber toward you...but instead of growling "Brains! Brains!" they say things like "Resistance is futile" and "Your culture will adapt to service us." But it's going to take any Jedi a very long time to clear out every single drone from one of those cubes.
