Sometime last month, after William Shatner and Carrie Fisher got into a feud over which was better, Star Trek or Star Wars, George Takei intervened by filming the above video message, urging them to make peace with each other.
In the video he begins,
"Fellow star folks. Cool it down, and shut your big worm holes! Each is wonderful in its own special way..."
Takei says this is a time when all "starfriends" need to band together, because of an "ominous mutual threat to all science fiction." He says, " It’s called ‘Twilight’ and it is really, really bad. Gone is any sense of heroism, camaraderie, or epic battle. In its place, we have vampires that sparkle, and moan, and go to high school."
I am listening George, and even though I do think Star Trek is WAY BETTER than Star Wars, I will refrain from antogonizing any fellow starfriends, because I have had it up to here with vampires. Oh, and zombies. We should all live long and prosper, and be vampire and zombie-free. May the force be with us. And may it bring us another Star Trek movie.
