I definitely call myself a Star Trek fan. I read this comic and immediately knew that the two of them were talking about in the first frame.
When I was recovering from surgery last year I watched all of the Star Wars movies in order. It was a lot of fun. But, honestly, I still prefer the incredible depth I got from all of the Star Trek shows, from The Original Series (TOS) through Enterprise. It took a while, but I even came to love Deep Space 9, though I still prefer the idea of exploring the universe and finding new ways of seeing the world.
I hadn’t really thought about it much, but there definitely are different types of people. In a lot of cases those who love Star Wars don’t seem to really understand or completely love Star Trek. They always see it as “Star Wars Lite.” The Star Trek Fans are pretty similar as well, we appreciate Star Wars, and think it’s a great story, but if we would gladly re-watch Star Trek episodes again and again.
So, what are you? Star Wars or Star Trek?
Oh, and in case you were wondering… Picard.
