Star Wars Vs Star Trek
« on: October 19, 2003, 03:57:57 am »
What do you think is better:
Star Wars
or
Star Trek

I think that Star Wars is better, because I haven't really watched, nor gotten into the Star Treck stuff. I think that Star Treck dosen't really have a story line.

I haven't had a good forum star wars VS star trek battle in a while. I have withdrawal symptomes

Star Wars, I'd say.


But raging above them both: Farscape. Now that is nice SciFi...too bad they never made the final season, Season 5.

If I had to choose I'd choose star trek.

For a reason I can sum up thusly.

Lucas has lost it.  He turned one of the most meanacing badguys (Fett) from an egnima to a standard character. (Ruining Fett's big appeal, I might add.)

He also took one of the most fearsome troops in the galexy and turned them into a horrid cliche.

The Storm Troopers used to be voulenteers from all over the galaxy who WILLINGLY submitted to turning themselves into machine like drones.

Now they're clones.. *yawn*

Storm Troopers were always clones, later on after the Clone wars at the foundation of the Empire, Volunteers were accepted into armed service to fill out hte numbers the Empire would need to exert its control over the galaxy

...as far as I know ^_^

Well, I know that the "Extended universe" created for the books and the RPGs aren't considered "Cannon"  However, according to them, all of the Troopers were voulenteers.

I find that a lot more scary than clones, that someone would willingly join up to become a faceless minion.

PJ Hart: Science Fiction Geek first class reporting for duty.

the extended universe has many theories about stormtroopers.... in the rogue squadron books they are produced in factories ( a la clones) but in the Thrawn saga it is implied that cloning technology was lost and as clones died they needed to be replaced by volunteers/ conscripts.

also in A New Hope, when Obi Wan is sneaking around the death star two storm troopers have a conversation along the lines of

"So have you seen the new T-16s?"
"<something>"
"whats all this about anyway?"
"probly just another drill"

which gives the impression that although some stormtroopers may be volunteers/ conscripts they are not exactly "machine like drones" as you say.

How I can know shit like this and still enjoy an avid social life is beyond me

I have a bone to pick with star wars, even though I think it's better than star treck. Is with the latest episode (2); INSERT INTO yabbse_messages (ID_MSG, ID_TOPIC, ID_MEMBER, subject, posterName, posterEmail, posterTime, posterIP, smiliesEnabled, modifiedTime, modifiedName, body, icon, attachmentSize, attachmentFilename) VALUES it was a pretty poor effort much like matrix 2. It felt that episode two was just there to fill in space.

The story of matrix 2 was too much bunched up hitting it all at the end, with the guy from KFC, the kernel. Kernel??? Its spelt like cernel ....meh. Most second series are made pretty poorly, exluding a few. Terminator 2, X-men 2 wasn't made badly.

*coughs*  Aliens reserected?

I think that's the one in the criminal colony that's considered, basically, to be crap.

Ah, yes, the movie with the vaguely vaganal title...

I know what you're talking about.

Thought you were refering to the entire series, not just one movie...

no no.... Aliens. as in the sequel to Alien.
