Star Wars vs. Star Trek

Star Wars vs Star Trek infographic

Which one wins, Star Wars or Star Trek? This is one of the most heavily debated question of all time. The Star Wars vs Star Trek infographic from hark.com and TrekNews.net will not give you the answer on who is better… However, it will give you some concrete numbers on things like awards, social media followers, number of video games, and movies.

The war wages on. The battle between two of sci-fi’s most iconic franchises, Star Trek and Star Wars, is a battle that has been discussed by fans for over 30 years. The recent news of J.J. Abrams accepting the director’s job on the next Star Wars film, only fanned the flames.

Today’s infographic pits the two franchises against each other once again — with criteria including number of films, box office gross, number of Academy, Grammy and Emmy Awards, video games, books, toys, and social media followers.

This is a fun topic, perfect to incite discussion and links from the online community.  My only criticism of the design is the many of the statistics are not visualized.  Big fonts are not visualizations, so the infographic would be easier to comprehend if numbers like the Total Box Office Gross proceeds were visualized.

Why is it always about which one is better. The only similarities between the two franchises is the fact that they both have STAR in the title. This type of comparison is trash.

Some of these are crap. More movies and tv shows doesn't make it win anything. More than half the time sequels and corresponding tv shows are only for money and not even half the quality of the original.
