    Think about a normal life in each. You can work your way into Star Fleet, but if you aren't born with enough midichlorians, you're not going to be a Jedi.

      If i was told no by that green alien, then i would turn to te dark side. iwould learn the ways of the Sith no matter what it taes, soon to take my revenge on those who doubted and turned me away. And if they gave me the chance (just so i wouldn't kill them) THEN i would become a Jedi.

      Holodecks, replicators, transporters, advanced healthcare... and you wouldn't have to sign up for the Starfleet, since all those are available for every Federation citizen. What exactly does Star Wars have to offer, besides a short life expectancy?

      Yes @Jrrd you are correct. but you can still join either side.. or start your own faction/company/empire... as long as you don't show off as a threat or major power, it'll be too late before either side notices what going on. You could have many fleets of leviathans before they can do anything.

      why would i want to be a jedi? they were hunted down and killed by a huge humanoid figure with lightsaber techniques like nothing they've ever seen before,with a vast legion of storm troopers who gladly do his biding, with strength several times that of a normal race, enough force power to crush part of a star destroyer by himself, who can take on large numbers of troops and jedi all by himself, and in intimidating lightsaber resistant armor who would literally stop at absolutely nothing to see the complete and total destruction of the jedi order. I'd rather jump into the lava pits of mustifar then have to live in a nightmare of a life where nothing can protect me from this evil demon like monster that will never stop hunting me no matter where or how i hide.

    I'm a huge fan of both. However, the Trek universe boasts food replicators and mass transmitters. Plus, they don't use money in the Federation. Star Wars is basically the American war of Independence in space followed by never-ending territorial squabbling. Though it would be cool to be a bounty hunter for a while.

    Are you people crazy? Regardless of where you fall in the whole "Which is better, Star Wars or Star Trek?" debate, Star Wars is a universe in constant, well, war and spends a great deal of time being oppressed by a fascist dictatorship. In the Star Trek universe, on the other hand, the Earth is a civilized utopia filled with replicators and holodecks. It's kind of a no brainer.

Also, if you're lucky, lightsabers.

      Yea, it's super casual. There is the ocassional bounty hunter, you could be born into slavery, there is a fucking EMPIRE about to kill you (assuming the time periods for SW is 4th movie and ST is TNG). With ST you can replicate food, take showers instantly, and explore the galaxy without the fear of death. If you want a more exciting job, join Starfleet.

      That is illogical. First of all, you did not consider my fellow Vulcans. Second of all, you did not consider the insanely short life expectancy of people in he Star Wars universe. AND you were rude. Saying this to us is highly insulting and illogical. Live long and prosper.

    In Star Trek earth is a utopian society, money no longer exists, no poverty, no war, no disease, anything you want can be replicated from raw atoms in the air. Star Wars has almost constant galaxy wide warfare and suffering and less advanced technology. I am more of a Star Wars fan than Star Trek but Trekkie earth would be a much nicer place to live than pretty much anywhere in SW universe.

    I'm sorry, but as much as I love the force, the Star Trek universe is just more pleasant to live in.

    I don't care if I become a jedi/sith id just love to live in that universe. Plus there is no way I could go about daily life having to deal with the people of star trek without murdering them all.

    Star Trek seems vastly safer. Plus Vulcans and phasers.

      Wookies and Lightsabers. Your argument is invalid.

    While I may not necessarily end up being in Star Fleet if I were to live in the Star Trek universe, there's still holodecks which I could use to live out badass fantasies.
