I'd say so. The story development of the Federation and the Cardassians was enough to keep me hooked as the show progressed.

Then there's the crossovers they did with TNG.

Ahhh I haven't seen the show in years.

Whether you should or not, that's another thing.

I never see a point in comparing them (or most other shows/films) - the only thing that matters is each person's opinion of each.

Also, isn't the technology to create a ring that controls people and acts as a cloaking device to make you invisible the sort of thing you might expect from science fiction....

I'd preferred the Star Trek movie to any Star Wars movie that's been made, but that's not saying much really as I'm sure most Trekkies scoffed at it.

Star Trek for me. I prefer shows with ethical dilemmas, instead of physical ones.




Edit: To expand on that, I think that the former have greater potential to draw viewers in because you can disagree with the conclusion or it can challenge your real-life beliefs. The latter doesn't challenge the viewer any more than 'well, I would have shot the dude on the left first instead of the dude in the front.'

Also this very much. Star Trek is more more cerebral.

Wiki says it better;
"Science fiction has been used by authors as a device to discuss philosophical ideas such as identity, desire, morality and social structure"
Science fiction tends to be more like that then fantasy. But yeah there is common ground.

Yep, this is why it has me hooked. Just so much more interesting, and more depth IMO.
