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.

The last two Star Trek and the first two of the Star Wars.
