Yup, and that's why Spock would lose an arm.

Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire and I was like 'Goodbye' and you were like, 'Nooo!' That was great!

I don't feel that either is better than the other; both were total game-changers and still well-loved decades after their debuts.

But for me personally, I'll always be a Star Wars gal. I love a good plot, but I'm all about the characters - and I find the Star Wars ensemble to be much more satisfying. Star Trek never managed to make me care immensely about any particular characters, whereas the mere mention of Sarlaac pits can bring tears to my eyes.

Star Wars just felt more epic. When I'm watching Star Trek, I feel like I'm watching a television show (which isn't always a bad thing). There is just a continual reach for the goal, rather than a long term goal to settle (and be settled).

I feel like a dick asking this, but are you watching the Star Trek television show when you feel this? Because I think I have a theory...

I wonder what would be Sheldon Cooper's answer...
Don't be stupid...

Sheldon Cooper is the most selfish, arrogant, brilliant, crazy unstable, awkward, hilarious, emotionless, and nerdy scientist ever to grace fiction.
I secretly suspect he actually has normal emotions but hides them because it's his lifelong dream to be Spock.

He has Aspergers. He exhibits all of the signs.
It's so blatant that when you think about it, you kinda can't laugh at the character anymore.
At least I can't.
I don't think he needs to be immortal. I think all he needs to do is to write the right story. Because some stories do live forever.

That has always been glaringly abvious to me as well.
When I went to college there was a guy in my class that was exactly like Sheldon, minus the massive intelect.
I can still laugh at his character though, I don't find Aspergers to be any less appropriate for comedy than any other massively socially awkward ailment.

They have however started to stray away from the whole socially awkward Sheldon template, and more toward a more peppy Sheldon with a personality.

It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

I knew he had Asbergers, but I think that him and Amy will sleep with each other by the end of this season, as it would make a great hook.

I think that Big Bang tries to pander to the modern nerd culture more than it should.
The show as a whole is okay I agree, but it feels like they are trying too hard with some of their material to "be cool".

I never really thought of them as pandering, but I do get the odd feeling that the writers are outsiders to geek culture.
That said, they *usually* do a good job of respecting the geek subculture.
But every once in a while I feel like *I'm* the butt of the joke. <__<

I never got that feeling from the IT Crowd. More of a loving satire.

There no debating: 100% StarWars. Yes... i know that Star Trek is THE classic of the sci-fi world, but it's become dated. StarWars not only is more modern, but it's still evolving now, while good old Star Trek is just rusting. Maybe my opinion is a bit one-sided, but i am a full out StarWars fan and love everthing in its universe. I'm not saying Star Trek is bad, but i just think it can't hold it's own (anymore) aginst modern generation sci-fi.

We humans give so much for granted, but not many people realize what a fluke it is if we are here today. Remember how lucky we are, and take a minute to be grateful for what we have. Because before you know it, the best has come to past, and you will be left with nothing, but remorse for what was, and what will never be.
