William Shatner Explains Why Star Trek Is Better Than Star Wars

| Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersPerezTVWilliam Shatner

This oughta stir up some controversy with sci-fi fans!

Check out the video (above) of William Shatner explaining why he feels that Star Trek is better than Star Wars.

He makes some valid points, but he's CLEARLY going to be biased since he WAS Captain Kirk after all!

Maybe next time they can have Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill explain why HE thinks Star Wars is better!

…Actually, maybe he wouldn't prefer Star Wars. It hasn't really treated him so well over the years, now has it? LOLz.

And without further adieu, here's the ultimate question…..

TEAM STAR TREK or TEAM STAR WARS???

    I have my name tattooed in Vulcan on my back - STAR TREK ALL THE WAY!!!!



  6. 6

    So long as George Lucas is still alive to screw up the original trilogy (HAN SHOT FIRST!), then its Trek all the way. I'll take every bad Star Trek episode before i put up with Jar Jar Binks.

    Star Trek!!!!!! Star Wars is a bunch of mindless nonsense and plush toys!

    Even though most of the people that i've encountered on this site have HORRIBLE tastes in music, it comforts me to know that they at least have decent tastes in Science Fiction. But to be honest, I'm personally not even a fan of comparing the two. Reason one is like what Mr. Shatner said- Star Trek was more about relationships, conflict, and humanity, while Star Wars was nothing but special effects. And reason two is because there's simply no comparison. And even if we were to compare them, it wouldn't matter anyway because Star Trek is the shit while Star Wars is just… well, shit. And nothing but. I don't know, it would be like comparing Baskin Robbins ice cream to a dust-covered jar of sardines- although they're not even similar, you still know which one you'd pick. So because of that, there's no real need to even bring about a competition.

    Well i'm going to be different and say I love the first 3 star wars films and by that I mean the old ones. I can't stand Star Trek. I'm a girl though and I have never met a girl that likes Star Trek. So boring.

    Star Trek, of course. I will also say something sacriligious to many. Star Wars was boring. A few good moments but mostly a C grade western in space.

    I loved them both, but Captain Picard was the best. Star Trek TNG all the way.

    Star Trekkin across the universe :p

    Star trek, of course! You can't even compare the two. Trek has hours upon hours of original, thought-provoking, philosophical material with well developed characters and plot lines. Not that I dislike star wars, it just doesn't hold a candle to trek. The humor is more clever and subtle, too. I won't even get into jarjar binks.

    Sounds to me like Shatner has some sour grapes in his mouth. (or up his ass) It's TEAM STAR WARS for me.
