What's with all these comparison of Trek ships and characters with other SF ships and characters ?

It's a silly, obvious way to drum up people are going to do it constantly and without end.

It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want. - Spock

Well the short and simple answer is: Because it's a bit of harmless fun.

The only harm it does is to people who are sensitive enough to take offence.

For those who have little interest in such contests (Like me.) they are easy peezy to spot and to avoid.

Because Roddenberry set the standard - all others are compared to him.

I use to whole heartedly charge into those debates and now I avoid them like the plague. I thought it would be fun to compare just for the sake of doing so.

The problem is you get one or both sides who want to play lawyer and gut the other sides examples or tech manuals etc.

So in the end the debates never get anywhere because both sides usually can't agree on the validity of the others source material they are using as evidense in the first place.

Now I only engage in those types of debates in person or on beter behaved forums than this place.
