“Star Trek” vs. “Star Wars:” The War Continues

It’s no secret that a few remarks by William Shatner have sparked a debate amongst fans of “Star Trek” and “Star Wars.” However, what fans may not realize is that Shatner was calling an all-out YouTube video war on the “Star Wars” franchise, namely between himself and Carrie Fisher.

So, in order to protect the good name of “Star Wars,” Carrie Fisher responded earlier this month:

Well, obviously the battle has just begun, as Shatner responded to that video with his own yesterday:

Personally, I am attempting not to take sides, but I found both of these videos hysterical. It doesn’t matter who wins this battle of the wits. In the end, the fans of both “Star Trek” and “Star Wars” get some great comedy from what are probably the two largest and most entertaining egos in the science fiction universe. How can you not love them both?

Here’s a pretty hilarious bonus video of the “Star Trek: The Next Generation” crew watching one of the “Star Wars” films. You can thank me for this later:

    I think William Shatner is preparing himself to be the male Betty White.  See the similarities.. He has already had a long career, he pokes fun at himself, he’s quiet the comedian, willing to jump in and do just about anything in Hollywood.  You see him everywhere, but doesn’t seem to suffer over exposure, etc.  He seems to have had a great resurgence and part of popular culture.  Anyone agree?  The only issue that makes Betty White in line for sainthood is that I believe everyone LOVES her.. EVERYONE… and that can’t be said with William Shatner.  But… mark my words, if he can live into his late 80’s early 90’s.. he will still be around and in big demand.

      You know, that sounds about right! I always appreciate actors who don’t take themselves too seriously, which is why I love William Shatner.
