I never really got the debate about which was better, Star Wars or Star Trek, because I loved both franchises as a kid. For me the differences in them were less about the types of technology they used or the mythology they followed, rather it was how the stories were presented. Star Wars seemed to follow the Western mode, with characters weaving in and out of an epic tale. Star Trek felt more like a police procedural show, always beginning every story from a set location and having the characters deal with outside influences.
