    I prefer Star Wars because I grew up with it. I remember the iconic designs and characters which are indeed impressive.

    Both. I love the first 6 Star Wars movies. Star Trek TOS and DS9 are two of my favourite shows.

    The 2 reboot movies Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness are a major disappointment (except for the music which is brilliant)

    I wasn't disappointed. I like those reboot movies. They are so much better than Insurrection and Nemesis, which are snooze-fests.

    The worst thing that can be said about them is that they aren't quite Star Trek. They don't have anything like a Roddenberry feel. Perhaps they are a blend of Star Trek and Star Wars.

    I would rather re-watch any of the three reboots than any of the TNG movies save "First Contact." And most of the TOS movies as well.

    But, true, the reboots are not Rodenberry's Star Trek. The problem is that today's audience is not the audience of the 1960s--I personally am not the same person I was in the 1960s, and I would not be interested in TOS if it were presented in the same way today as it was when I watched it in the 60s.

    The reboots in concepts and "feel" fit into a darker universe that can lead to the Dominion War (which had the same effect on the Federation as 9/11 had on the US).

    Post 9/11 audiences won't really cotton to the TOS/TNG Federation. The DS9/Enterprise Federation is for post-9/11 audiences. the Federation where there is a secretive Section 31 (for acceptable reasons and for unacceptable reasons) are for audiences who understand that the real world has entities like the NSA.

    I wasn't a real big fan of the reboots, they just didn't have that Star Trek spark.

    I didn't like the first one. I haven't seen the second.

    Star Trek Beyond was by far the best reboot. And I agree with you about the TNG movies. First Contact is the best out of all of them because it actually links to the Enterprise episode Regeneration.
    Don't even get me started on Star Trek 5...
