One of the funnier things to come out of the Internet lately has been this video debate between William Shatner and Carrie Fisher over which is better, Star Trek or Star Wars. Obviously they're on opposite sides of the argument and have some funny and interesting reason why. Now George Takei (Dr. Sulu in Trek) has come out with a video in the hopes of ending the feud and uniting the fans over a common enemy....Twilight.
Like I said, fans have gotten a kick at the surprising back and forth between Shatner and Fisher about Star Trek and Star Wars, so this new video that just came out, is just the icing on the cake. It briefly shows the videos that sparked the 'feud' but then features George Takei with an urgent plea for "Star Peace":
He's right, the common enemy here is Twilight. It is awful and terrible and us fanboys need to unite to combat the Twi-Hards out there and try to make them realize just how bad those movies (and books really are).
Despite the humor inherent in the video and topic, Takei actually makes some really valid points. The most notable being the severe lack of life lessons in the Twilight story (I'm sorry, a teenager's choice about which boyfriend to choose isn't a life lesson):
“Gone is any sense of heroism, camaraderie or epic battles. In its place, we have vampires that sparkle, moan and go to high school...”
So let's support George and ensure peace between the fans!
