Answer for question 4318.

Star Trek or Star Wars?
Doctor Who all the way!

Okay, you knew I was going to say that. After that, Firefly.

But no, seriously, between the two, Star Trek, specifically TNG, which I absolutely loved. I never got to watch sci-fi while growing up (no one in my house liked it, and I remember once, my brother scoffing at me and changing the channel when he found me watch TOS), so I never really bonded with TOS, but TNG was the best, especially the later seasons. I think maybe I liked the optimistic view of the human race that was the core of TNG and Picard's nobility and interest in exploration, without the preachiness of the later series. (Hm, that's the same reason I love Doctor Who.)

I did see the original Star Wars, and I remember making my dad take me to see The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi, but they never caught my imagination and they were just movies to me.

Now, can I get back to talking about Doctor Who? ;)

Same, I guess, for me too. I like the original three Star Wars films and find them rewatchable (not so much the new three... I think I've seen them all twice, tops), and enjoy the SW universe in general, but my ability and desire to retain information about Star Trek is greater, especially TNG (partly because my mother has DVD sets I used to binge watch when I was sick).

Did somebody say Doctor Who?

LOL!! I love your answer here. Aside from the 'no one watches scifi in my house while growing up' I could say, this would be a lot like my own answer. Though I did like the SW movies...I just headscratch over the whole fandom aspect of them. I put this down to my lack of imagination, though. :D

Well... I love them both, actually, and Doctor Who as well, so I can't decide.

Still, the original Star Wars trilogy was so much better than the second, because you had people with personality... and the Millennium Falcon! I love a ship that's cantankerous and has spirit! The relationship between Han Solo and Princess Leia was also fascinating. Everyone around them could see what was happening, yet for the longest time, they refused to recognize it.

Similar, in fact, to what appeared to be happening with the Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble... they insisted quite vigorously that they weren't a couple/married/together, grinning wildly as they did so. Yet everywhere they went, someone made that assumption. What's definitely true is that they were really great friends and they knew each other well (as well as anyone can know the Doctor). Not only that, but his ship, the TARDIS, has a huge personality. She's sentient and has a definite mind of her own! Absolutely a character in her own right...

No... don't ask me to choose. Just don't!

Doctor Who all the way, definitely! ;)
