It's been more than 40 years, but the space battle between the "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" franchises continues. "Solo: A Star Wars Story" hits theaters on Friday, May 25, and the latest installment is expected to crush it at the box office (just like all the other "Star Wars" movies). Since "Star Trek: The Original Series" debuted in 1966—the franchise has produced an animated series, five more TV series, and 13 motion pictures. Which space franchise is the greatest? 🖖👽☄️

Trekkies have been loyal to the "Star Trek" franchise for 50 years now—a decade before "Star Wars" even existed! The franchise was rebooted in 2009 and has since released two successful sequels. The franchise made its grand return to television last year with "Star Trek: Discovery." Production on the second season is already underway.

Watch a behind-the-scenes clip from the second season of "Star Trek: Discovery" below.

Let's be real. The "Star Wars" franchise has topped the "Star Trek" franchise. "Star Wars" may have produced less work, but the franchise has brought in much more in the box office, and that's without nostalgic TV series backing it up. 

The franchise has made more than $7.7 billion worldwide, and the latest installment, "Solo: A Star Wars Story" will crush it at the box office. "Star Trek" has only made $2.2 billion worldwide. So, ask yourself—doesn't a lightsaber triumph over the Vulcan salute?

Check out the trailer to "Solo: A Star Wars Story" below.
