‘Star Wars’ vs. ‘Star Trek’ — Which Is Better?

In one corner, we have 'Star Wars,' George Lucas' world-changing movies featuring his iconic characters Luke Skywalker, Yoda, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Chewbacca and countless others. The original trilogy spawned three prequels, a slew of cartoons and spinoffs... oh, and a bona fide religion.
