Winning the cultural war?

I took an impromptu informal survey of 44 people in a class I was in today and here are the alarming results:

The respondents were asked to identify which Science fiction series/world was their favorite, the choices being Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica and Firefly.

Star Trek's showing was surprisingly low, with only two going for that.

Battlestar Galactica got another two, which wasn't really surprising, as it it is not quite as well known.

Firefly got a solid four, tying BSG and Star Trek together. Browncoats Forever!

The rest of the group, all thirty six of them, threw up their hands and cast their votes for Star Wars.

It's clear to see who is winning the marketing wars in the Sci Fi world. With the release of the upcoming Star Wars movie, a long time ago in a galaxy far far away is as popular now as ever.

On another note, Han Solo clearly shot first. And justifiably so.
