A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Star Wars was born. Since then the debate has been over which is better--Star Wars vs. Star Trek... Here are my arguments in favor of Star Wars. Let the battle begin!
5: E.T. was a senator in the Star Wars universe.
4: Name anybody in Star Trek who looked cooler than Boba Fett. You can't.
3: The dimly lit and busy Mos Eisley Cantina was worlds better than 10-Forward, which looks here like a game room.
2: Prominent Star Wars aliens* included a gigantic slug who chained women up in slinky outfits, and a red and black spikey martial artist with a double-bladed lightsaber. Prominent Star Trek aliens included a guy with pointy ears and a tight shirt, and shit-ton of guys with cranial malformations.
1: Lightsabers are never, ever set to "stun."
I made it through without a single Wesley Crusher joke! Okay Trekkers (or as Roddenberry preferred, Trekkies), let me have it in the comments below (and Star Wars fans, share this with your Facebook friends). Soon to come, I'll run this the other way--reasons Star Trek is better than Star Wars...
*Yeah, technically everyone on Star Wars was an alien--galaxy far, far away and all that--but you know what I mean.
