The original Star Trek, the show, the movies and all the books. I will forever adore Captain James T. Kirk.

Actually, this depends on which Star Trek you're talking about. In my mind, The Original Series is the best and cannot possibly be topped by anything. Sure, TNG had Old Baldy, but it was preachy and boring. DS9 had that guy who played Hawk in "Spenser: For Hire", but he wasn't even bald until the third or fourth season, so that's out. Voyager had Captain Jane Hathaway who turned into a salamander along with her helmsman after breaking the warp ten barrier and they had little salamander babies together. Ick.

And let's not even talk about Enterprise or the Abramsverse movies.

Now, on to Star Wars. The first two were pretty good, but after that it descended into George Lucas' obsession with teddy bears and CGI. The prequel trilogy was a travesty, except for that Darth Maul guy. I still watch that one to this day just so I can make fart noises at my TV when Darth Maul glowers at the screen and growls under his breath.

But none of that can compare to Captain James T. Kirk talking a computer to death. IMHO!

The question assumes a false dichotomy. It need not be either/or. I happen to enjoy both, fairly equally.
