I like Star Wars but I LOVE Star Trek and I personally feel the weight of my own nerdiness for being a Star Trek groupie (even mentioned it outright on my profile when I came on board) but I assure you I am unashamed and unabashed to be labelled a nerd!
Star Wars is a little bit more "mainstream" which is why it is not associated with Nerd-dom so much.
HOWEVER, Star Trek dealt much more with social and humanity issues and delved into characterization and personal conflict/development. Star Wars was more about action/adventure and special effects. It takes some brains to love Star Trek, hence the "Nerd" nomenclature.
