Star Wars and Star Trek. Two of the biggest sci-fi franchises ever. And for decades, the debate has raged among fans as to which is best.

It also provided us with a hilarious debate between William Shatner, aka Capt. Kirk, and Carrie Fisher, aka Princess Leia, as to which franchise is best, a debate that was started here. At one point, even George Takei took part in this heated exchange.

Now that J.J. Abrams, the man who’s managed to breathe some much-needed new life into the Star Trek franchise, is also poised to pull some heavy duties for Star Wars: Episode VII, the debate rages on hotter than ever.

Still, Star Wars vs. Star Trek, who is the winner?

Below is a fascinating new infographic that pits the two mighty spacefaring franchises against each other.

The criteria used? Well, we have number of films for each franchise, box-office gross, live-action series and animated series, the number of Academy, Grammy and Emmy Awards each franchise has managed to win, as well as videogames, books (So. Many. Books.), toys (George Lucas would be so proud) and … social media followers!
