Though it's been the subject of decades of debate among nerds of all stripes, the Star Trek/Star Wars rivalry has died down as of late. Trek in particular seems to be in something of a lull right now -- though the new films have met with varying degrees of success, they're still more or less Federation-themed Star Wars movies. Maybe CBS' upcoming Star Trek revival show will put more gas in that tank. In the meantime, it might help to have a refresher in preparation of the inevitable moment when this comes up again.
