Star Wars and Star Trek are two entirely different genres.
Star Wars is a space opera, more akin to the old Sword and Sorcery movies, or Buck Rogers serials, etc.
Star Trek is science fiction.
I never did understand this need to compare the two relentlessly. They BOTH succeed very well at what they were intended to be. If they didn't, it
wouldn't be making the stars of it money hand over fist at every Convention they go to, no matter what they've done or not done lately, hehe.....
I get your point, on Trek and social commentary, but that was never the goal of Star Wars. Its goal was simply to entertain. Lucas has said this on
I'm a geeky nerd who loves BOTH franchises.
I never did get the appeal of Seven of Nine though. I've seen Jeri Ryan in person during enough Cons, and she's attractive enough, but I don't know,
just never got it....probably because I'm a smiles guy. (she does have a pretty smile in person, you don't see it in her character).
