I wanted to ask something. Why is it that the fans of Star Trek and the Star Trek games are usually fans of Star Wars but dont openly say they hate it and completely point it out to everyone.

However, it seems most Star Wars fans seems to absolutely HATE Star Trek! And not only do they just not like it, they openly criticize it and say horrible stuff about it like I saw here at JK2Files.com: http://www.jk2files.com/file.info?ID=4967&action=expand#52188

Whenever a Star Wars mod comes out for a Star Trek game, it is openly welcomed, but in this Star Wars game, when a Star Trek file comes out, it is completely criticised: look at these examples:

http://www.jk2files.com/file.info?ID=4967&action=expand#52188
http://www.jk2files.com/file.info?ID=2868
http://www.jk2files.com/file.info?ID=2840&action=expand#17480
http://www.jk2files.com/file.info?ID=3005&action=expand#18426

It brings another tear to my ear.

Plus, star trek is a lot less realistic.
The HUMANS are the only species that plays a big role.
You could kill every 'alien' in the starwars world, and Darth Vader would still go Luke..I am your father.
And what the heck is it with the wookies and jar jar binks?
They were some of the most horriblest character additions since Scrapy Dappy Dooooooooooooo!

I think Jar Jar is supposed to be some kinda comic relife or something, And Chewy is just so retared. all he does is piss alot of people off. like in Episode 2 (Which was pritty boring..) The only problem i have with the new starwars is that they Just talk WAY to much during the whole movie, in the 2nd one they talked like for more than half the movie. i just thought Episode one was really funny, notice how they have a 9 yr old kid hittin on some 14 or 15 yr old chick. Happy hahahaha now a day's isnt that conisdered Iligal??? Happy Then they go and remake the whole 1st 3 movies, pritty bad. The only reason why i like star wars is the Ship Graphics and some of the games Happy

Yeah, I like Jedi Knight II. It's a good game. I spent several days playing it. After I finished the demo and full version single player games, I played Elite Force again and got confused when I couldn't use force powers.

Bleh, Jedi knight... CANT GET THE DAMN THING TO WORK. Stupid lucas arts. the disc is bad, i have to send it to em and get a new one( i have to pay though Sad ) The thing i mostly find odd is What Simmon said earlier, Star Trek Fans Mostly hate starwars and Vise Versa, but when that Star Trek Vs. Star Wars Mod Came out For Armada I and now the demo for Armada II, knowone said anything bad about it. although i did find it funny that the maker of that maker of that mod made the Star Trek Ships look alot better than most of the star wars ships Happy

That's his point (and it's Simmo btw Wink) Armada is a star trek game. When star wars stuff comes out for a star trek game, noone says anything, but when star trek stuff comes out for a star wars game, they go all mad and start giving out.
No matter what I choose, no matter how much I buy, the ones I love will always be the ones who pay. Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words, "with great parents comes great reliability." This is my gift; their purse. Who am I? I'm Dobberman.

Star Wars has more games based around it than movies of it! There are only 5 "episodes" made so far.

Where as Star Trek has 852 episodes and 9 movies that have been released. Now if there were more Star Trek games than Star Trek episodes........ there'd be nowhere to move around for the piles of them!

Star Wars doesn't have as long of a history as Star Trek does.

Star Trek = 1966 - present
Star Wars = 1977? - present

I'm not making fun of Carlos, I'm complaining about him.

STOP SPAMMING CARLOS!

I don't want this to turn into a discussion about spamming, so just leave it at this. Don't bother denying it.

We now return to "StarTrek vs Starwars".

Probably because its STAR TREK BRIDGE COMMANDER, a Star Trek game, so its no wonder Star Trek won.
