That Space:1999 set looks like a crossover between the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode, "Justice," set on a paradise planet with scantily clad inhabitants and a dark secret, and the original Westworld with the messed up faces.

Though TNG post-dates that episode by a good decade, there were TOS episodes with not dissimilar wardrobe choices, as the Brits would put it, "something for the dads."

This reminds me of robot wisdom weblog, which is how I found fark oh so long ago when it linked to an epic thread about who would win in a battle between the Enterprise D and an Imperial super star destroyer.

I think there was an animated gif where the intrepid crew of the Enterprise comment that the attacker is firing lasers at them and how that wouldn't even scratch the paint on the hull.

I highly recommend going back through the Messy Nessy archives.

That's an actual line of dialog in an episode, except they say lasers wouldn't penetrate their navigational shields. Either way, the Enterprise would smoke an Imperial Star Destroyer.

If I recall, that gif or similar ends with beaming a photon torpedo into the bridge. If course this predated the sequel trilogy, which buffed up the deflectors.

I learned something cool (to me the other day)

I watched THX-1138 the other day and only just realized that the sounds of the police beating scene were used by Nine Inch Nails for the song

One of the most obvious differences in the two franchises is the traffic practices.  In Star Trek generally craft, even smallcraft, maintained large separation.  Ships collided in space rarely enough that when it happened it was particularly noteworthy and in some cases integral to the plot.  In Star Wars there appear to be no boundaries and even large craft end up in formations so tight that they have to take evasive action as a matter of course.

Another important difference, Star Trek: The Next Generation has a battle bridge.  In my humble opinion the battle bridge as a set was underused on the television show by the primary command crew, as lots and lots of weapons were discharged from the main bridge even knowing they were going to be involved in a skirmish of some sort, but the battle bridge should have been crewed as an auxiliary control full time, meaning even the destruction of the main bridge shouldn't have resulted in the loss of the conn.If Star Trek had been more realistic about it, then a senior officer, probably Data as second-officer, should have adjourned to the battle bridge any time they went to Red Alert, such that a senior ranking officer was present there if needed, but regardless it would be reasonable to assume that the battle bridge would always have at least some crew in the compartment and would be ready to take over if the main bridge was no longer in control of the ship.

By contrast Star Wars doesn't appear to have even a basic auxiliary control on even the massive Executor, let alone a basic Star Destroyer, which is just silly since Wookieepedia lists the fictional ship class as having a crew of around 37,000, and Executor supposedly had a crew of 281,000. With crews this massive, none of these craft should have ever lost control simply because the main bridge or the flag bridge and its crew killed.  It simply should not have happened.  Even without a backup bridge or a dedicated auxiliary control, damage control and engineering should have taken control of the conn enough to steer the ship where it wasn't a threat to friendly units.
