I love both franchises, but this is no contest. Empire Strikes Back is easily the best film in the Star Trek/Star Wars universes. The challenger for me from the Star Trek side would be Star Trek: First Contact, but I'm also a much bigger fan of TNG & DS9 than the original series cast. I voted other in the favourite character poll because I feel like this is Leia's best film. We get to see her at her sardonic best, especially when rebuffing Han, but we also see her fall in love in the process and deal with real hardships in an awesomely thoughtful and caring way. My second favourite character in these films is also not on the list. I would go with C3PO, because not only is he the best cock-blocker in space, but he is also at his comedic best as he suffers constant ignominy. Yoda finishes a close 3rd.

Furthermore I absolutely don't get how anyone can endure Shatner's horrible so-called acting.

The acting throughout the original three Star Wars films is cringeworthy. Mark Hamill is beyond terrible, especially in A New Hope.

And even though Shatner's acting is... unique; for James T Kirk, it absolutely works.

That's a tough one.  Both favorites of mine.

I would probably give the edge to Empire but I loved the Khan character.

Tie between Star Wars (1977) and The Undiscovered Country, and Khan!!!!! I love Ricardo Montalban. His Space Seed Kahn Noonien Singh is the coolest genetically-modified villain ever, IMHO (and that's a tough group to lead).

Empire. Vader is really the only interesting & compelling character in the whole Saga.
