Anyhow, the author of the SW vs ST article fails to mention the Federations most potent weapon: the officers. Kirk can beat up anyone in the Empire and sleep with their women. Picard could bore them to death with his philosophy. Sisco could overact and throw baseballs at them. Janeway, though, would run away.
And you didn't mention that Stormtroopers can't seem to hit the broad side of a barn from 10 feet away.
(Oh, sure, they blame it on the blasters
My money's still on SW, however...http://www.johnwaitethehardway.com/index2.htm
