Star Wars and Star Trek very probably have the most rabid fans known to geekdom. But they’re constantly trying to one up each other! What’s better! Who’s more awesome! Even the stars — William Shatner and Carrie Fisher — have gotten into it with each other. STOP IT. NO MORE. There’s a bigger enemy out there: Twilight.
George Takei made a hilarious video encouraging fans of each franchise to put away the bad blood and competition between Star Wars/Trek and unite against a common enemy: those dreadful sparkly vampire teeny bopper movies that are ruining everything and killing taste in humanity. He sums it up best here:
Sci-fi fans be warned, there are no great stories, characters or profound life lessons to be found in Twilight… In Twilight, the only message that rings through loud and clear is: ‘Does my boyfriend like me?'”
Truer words have never been spoken. I’m with you Sulu. [Chicago Sun Times]
