Most hardcore fans of Star Wars aren't into Star Trek.
Same goes for Trek fans.  A lot of them don't really care for Star Wars. (at least the ones I've met)

While I don't hate Star Wars, I cannot say that it is in any way better than Star Trek.
Star Trek and Star Wars are both pop cultural phenomenon around the world.
But I prefer the world of Starfleet and the Federation over the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire.  The Trek storylines and characters just seem to draw me in more than anything George Lucas has written.

Which do you prefer?

I  don't care for Star Wars a all. As for Star Trek....the only Trek for me is the original 1960's series,with Spock,Kirk and the gang. More action,cheezy aliens...just more fun all around.

Star Wars all the way.

As far as I'm concerned, Star Trek began and ended with The Wrath of Khan.  I hate the rest of it.

I liked the first two or three Star Wars films, and I liked most of the Star Trek films that had the original series cast in them.  I liked the Star Trek series from the '60s, and the third season of Enterprise was pretty good as well.  So, based on quantity, I guess I'll have to go with Star Trek.

Star Wars.  I never did "get" Star Trek; the original series was OK, frequently campy, but I never could get into the Picard era or beyond at all.

Star Wars...by far.  I only catch Star Trek once and awhile.  Although I do admit I would love to kick George Lucas in the nuts for all his sins.

Ultimately, I chose NEITHER.

I LOATHE Star Wars with a passion.  In fact, I hated Star Wars (what little I could watch without falling asleep, as it was so boring) so much, that I've pretty much learned to not watch anything produced by Lucas, outside of Howard the Duck, as I have an odd fascination with it.

Star Trek is okay, but I'm not a big enough fan of it to warrant voting in it's favor.

I like them both but I'm gonna go with Star Wars. I don't think I'm as into them as I once was. Both franchises have made huge mistakes in the past years that have really made me loose faith in whatever they put out.

I would not be surprised if it turned out that the preference shows a correlation to which one you grew up with.  Impressionable years and all that.
Forced to choose, I choose Trek.  But I enjoy both for what they are.  They differ enough that they are bound to appeal to different tastes.

I like both but picked Star Wars. ST is great, but I haven't found any of the movies as appealing as SW, SW:ESB, and SW: ROTJ. I don't even consider episodes 1-3 to be a part of the franchise, nor the special editions. For ST though, I liked the original series alot, but I'm one of those that finds ST:TNG to be the best series of the franchise. DS9 I just couldn't get into, and ST:E, well that sucked, and i have seen every episode. As for movies, 1 was just ok, Wrath of Kahn was AWESOME. I couldn't stand SFS, the one with the whales was ok, the one where they shot god with photon torpedoes sucked, and some of the later ones were good, but not great. Generations was OK, First contact a little less so, Insurrection was really good IMO, and I haven't seen Nemesis. ST:V is another I never got into, at all. I tried a few times, but never lasted through even half an episode. I do have to say there's 10000x times as much hope for a future in ST than their is SW. If Lucas tries to "prequil" or "special addition" THX 1138, I will personally hunt him down with a harpoon. (And yes, I do own my own harpoon).

I would not be surprised if it turned out that the preference shows a correlation to which one you grew up with.  Impressionable years and all that.

I'm sure it does. SW came out when I was 8 and in 3rd grade. Back then, manhood was based on how many times you'd seen Star Wars, then by what action figures you owned.

Definitely Star Trek. I never could get why people were as into Star Wars as they were. I did watch every movie, but once apiece was enough (and more than enough for the prequel movies). I basically watched the last 3 just to fill in the story.

As a sci-fi fan from birth, I was appalled that the movie that made sci-fi mainstream was such a hokey, badly written piece of space opera, with princesses, knights and evil emperors, dialogue and plots straight out of Flash Gordon. But I suppose I'm grateful that it did make sci-fi mainstream. It probably opened the door to all those Philip K. Dick movies we've had since.

I loved Next Generation. I kind of resented them reviving the franchise at first, but soon came to accept Picard as a much better picture of what a captain would act like. Could happily have lived without Counselor Troi.
