I've been a Doctor Who fan since Patrick Troughton but I have to go for Star Wars.

I'm a near lifetime fan of Doctor Who (but not into the Chibnall/ "fam" era -- I also went off Doctor Who in the 80s), The Tomorrow People, UFO and Star Trek, but when I saw the title I looked for one specifically in the list that I have also been into since I was young, Blake's 7. That show could be quite bleak indeed. A bold start and a bold finish.

While I loved Star Wars, the earliest-made two especially, as a young child, those didn't continue to hold my interest. That said, I do want to see the Mandalorian.

Sci-fi TV, books, and film has been my comfort food in a way for most of my life. I did stop watching and reading most sci-fi kind of things throughout my 20s and into my early 30s, but came back to it in a sort of nostalgic way.

By the way, one who likes Farscape might like Lexx. I like a tonne of sci-fi, most of it being Earth based.

I was trying to decide between Star Wars and Star Trek and broke the tie with Stargate SG-1.  :)  I am a sci-fi fan.  I am actually currently binging on Star Trek Deep Space Nine.  I have watched a number of episodes over the years but with the power of Netflix I am now watching them in order from the beginning.  Still in the first season but hoping to make it through all of them and then doing the same with Voyager.  I've watched most of the Next Gen episodes years ago and watched all of the Star Trek Enterprise episodes when it was originally airing.  I've always been a big Star Wars fans...even the Jar Jar Binks movies and the latest three.  For my birthday I got an annual membership to Disney +, mostly so I can watch the Mandalorian.  

My vote went to SG-1 though, because that was one that I bought all the seasons on DVD and was must watch TV for me.

While I always have favourited the original series, I loved the last series Star Trek: Picard. It was heartfelt, poignant, it was really meaningful to me.

sort of killed the love for him from then till forever man.... some scars never heal

That's too bad, because the recent series Picard was so beautiful (even if it went too body horror at least once -- really gruesome). The way it dealt with his frailty, mortality, and 7 of 9 was kick-ass great. Issues of friendship, loyalty... I loved it. To me this was a wonderful continuation. I have watched every Star Trek series to date and the latest was amongst my very favourites (it would help to know and like TNG).

Just last night I watched the Star Trek pilot again, with Jeffrey Hunter. I like Kirk, but I would loved to see more of the direction that Roddenberry was going with the pilot (I did prefer post-pilot Spock).

By the way, those that haven't seen Blake's 7 and are into classic sci-fi are I think really missing out (check youtube).

yeah...  I can dig that... but you'd understand if you had been in my sheets

he was a great character.. and suppose I can understand the love women seemed to have for him. The Hawkeye Pierce of the.. whatever those were.. 80's.. 90's.. minus the Lothario shtick.  I love having long hair... but he did once tempt me to try the whole bald is sexy thing...  but again.. any thoughts of that went up in smoke and suds..

Ahh, Ming the Merciless, nice choice.   In  fact, I'd have to go with the original Flash Gordon serial.   Really well done for the time, and you can't tell me George Lucas wasn't directly influenced by it.

Flash Gordon (serial) - Wikipedia

Flash (Buster Crabbe) fights a disguised Prince Barin (Richard Alexander) in a "tournament of death" using swords in the 1936 movie serial "Flash Gordon."

Star Trek was my first exposure to a serial space wars thing...but came to be a fan of Dr Who after 1975 so I guess Who, but I loved Babylon 5 , Stargate , and of course the Star Wars saga.

I grew up on a diet of Gerry & Sylvia Anderson particularly later with UFO and Space 1999. Also loved Blakes 7 and Tomorrow people. Loved the original Star Trek, loved the whole concept, the multinational-ness of the crew and whilst I enjoyed the later films and series (what I saw of them) I remained loyal to the original. I have always been ambivalent about Doctor Who though I did enjoy the Jon Pertwee era. A special mention has to be made to 'Quatermass and the Pit', 'Them' and other 50's and 60's Sci-Fi films which scared the sh*t out of me as a young boy!

^ Wasn't Space:1999 originally conceived as a followup to UFO ?
