star trek vs star wars

Ladbrokes Games recently went out to ask the ultimate question.  No, not what is the answer to life the universe and everything but what is the most popular sci-fi series on this planet?  Asking 2000 sci-fi fans to pick their top three, the results were no surprise and predictably it came down to two.  Star Trek and Star Wars and The Wars one by a healthy 7%  

928 fans voted for Star Trek which equalled just over 46%  Star Wars, however took a mighty 1064 votes, 53%.  Over half of the votes going to the George Lucas creation.  For the record Doctor Who was a healthy third with 39% and Marvel Comics took fourth with 35%

Other questions asked in the same poll were which sci-fi series do you think has/will have the biggest revenue?  With Star Wars VII and more on the horizon it was no surprise that Star Wars took a convincing win.

It wasn’t all bad news for Star Trek however as they took the top spot for favourite spaceship.  The Enterprise from Star Trek took just over 20% of the votes and this time not from Star Wars but Doctor Who and the TARDIS.
