Trek has hotter chicks than Star Wars.

Does this really factor in?

Sure! I'm proud to be a healthy man, and lonely teenage boys deserve their say and, face it, are a big part of fandom.

I get it.  It seems that it is a kosher way to enjoy the female form.

Yesterday I watched Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn.

Interesting that it's set 15 years after "Space Seed". In other words, the aging of the characters matches the aging of the actors.

BTW, does anyone have a favorite Star Trek movie?

You can do that by watching Doctor Who. It seems that the good Doctor has a fancy for young female traveling companions, and they're usually quite attractive. (Sarah Jane Smith, Tegan Jovanka, Rose Tyler, Clara Oswald, et al.) laugh

It's a tie between Star Trek II and Star Trek IV.

Never got into the movies.

Yesterday I watched Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn.

The difference transposing two letters makes. The Wrath of Kahn makes me think of a rogue accountant or broker committing white-collar crimes.

"Space Seed" was originally about a Germanic/Nordic eugenic superman but they changed it, obviously because he was too Nazi-like (but he lost of course, so, so what?), to a mixed Asian hero (Khan Noonien Singh: Genghis Khan, then a Chinese middle name after one of Gene Roddenberry's friends, and an Indian, specifically Sikh, last name).

I gave "Doctor Who" its due for having beautiful women, such as the buxom brunette trying to sound American.

I wanted to see The Wrath of Khan because of Seinfeld.  Sounds powerful.

Good point. Of course, it should also be remembered that "Space Seed" was preceded by Kipling's Shere Khan, and "postceded" by TV's Khan Souphanousinphone.

I dunno. Natalie Portman is pretty hot. Or, at least she was until she started talking.  The dialogue totally ruined the three recent movies.

Today I finally watched Star Trek IV. (I say finally because I would have watched it a couple weeks ago, but it wasn't available on Netflix then.) I guess I'll watch Star Trek V in the next couple days -- which is the one I never saw.

What about the Executor?

That looks like it would be bigger than any WH40k ship, though the weapons might give the Imperium a fighting chance.  Also, how many Executors were there?  Nova Cannons could probably knock one out since they are not energy weapons (not sure how much shields would do), just massive shells around 50m in diameter fired at a fraction of the speed of light.  The bog-standard torpedo carried from destroyers on up are still around 200 feet long and are fired by plasma reactors which add to the boom they make when hitting. 

Also, the space-Nazis in 40k are much meaner than the Star Wars/Star Trek folks.  In SW killing an entire planet is an atrocity of unknown proportions. In 40k, Exterminatus is a desperate measure but certainly not unthinkable.  Usual methods include virus bombs or firing torpedoes into the planets core to cause rapid tectonic shift.

That's because of a lack of taste on your part, I suppose  Wink

No, but seriously, that hair is awesome. And even if you don't like that hair, she didn't wear it in that scene where she was imprisoned by Jabba the Hutt.

While I can certainly understand the merits of metal bikinis, I can think of many other women who would fill those hardened curves in a more attractive manner.

Done. (Took a while since it disappeared from Netflix for months.)
