Star Trek Enterprise vs. Star Wars Millenium Falcon (Source)

Enter our fun Star Wars vs. Star Trek tournament for a chance to win one (1) of two (2) USB drives!

Update: We're in round 2! Vote on Geek Madness now!

The wait is over and my brother and I are happy to start the March "Geek Madness" Tournament 2014!  Last year we followed the Star Wars "This is Madness" tournament, but this year we're taking on the greatest debate in science fiction: Star Wars or Star Trek?

For the next few weeks, on Monday and Wednesday, you'll be able to vote between your favorite 16 Star Wars and 16 Star Trek characters. My brother and I went through all the most popular characters, selected 8 from each category and ranked them. Not everybody made the cut unfortunately. No one is going to miss Jar Jar Binks, but we'll miss Wesley Crusher. It was brutal.

Come back next Monday to begin voting on the greatest Star Wars and Star Trek character of all time.

Prizes

The first place winner can select between one of the two (Star Trek or Star Wars) USB drives. The second place winner will receive the other drive.


Star Trek Spock 8GB USB Flash Drive


Star Wars Yoda  R2-D2 8GB USB Flash Drive

The Yoda USB drive looks oddly similar to R2D2. So basically I have to predict how people will vote? My money (if I had any) would be on either Boba Fett or Darth Vader ending up against Spock or Data. But perhaps there will be a Butler Bulldogs-type character who will surprise everyone.

LOL You're right Pat. Yoda was wearing an R2-D2 costume. Fixed :)
