George Takei: 'Star Trek' and 'Star Wars' Fans Should Unite to Fight 'Twilight'
Aiming to end the feud between the fans of both sci-fi films, the Hikaru Sulu depicter suggests to make a 'Star Peace' and declares the vampire series as 'mutual threat to all science fiction.'


George Takei has taken an initiative to end the long-running dispute between "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" fans. The actor playing Hikaru Sulu on the original "Star Trek" TV series recently released a video urging both franchises' stars, William Shatner and Carrie Fisher, to call a truce, and declaring "Twilight Saga" as the real common enemy.

"What's needed today, now, more than ever, is 'Star Peace' for there is an ominous, mutual threat to all science fiction. It's called 'Twilight'. And it is really, really bad," said the 74-year-old. "Gone is any sense of heroism, camaraderie, or epic battle. In its place we have vampires that sparkle, moan and go to high school."

Takei continued, "Now, I'm not above mixing in a little sex appeal to spice up the fantasy. But sci-fi fans be warned, there are no great stories, characters or profound life lessons to be found in 'Twilight'...In 'Twilight', the only message that rings through loud and clear is: 'Does my boyfriend like me?' "

Shatner, who plays Captain Kirk on the original "Star Trek" series, previously ignited the feud between fans of both franchises on a reality show called "The Shatner Project". Saying that "Star Wars" was derivative of "Star Trek", he claimed, " 'Star Trek' has relationships, and conflict among the relationships, and stories with philosophical questions which dramatizes it. 'Star Wars' was special effects, was ILM at its best."

Shatner's comment drew strong reaction from Fisher, who is famous for her portrayal of Princess Leia in the original "Star Wars" trilogy. She quickly struck back by saying that her "space buns" was far more superior than Mr. Spock's ears and that Klingon "just sounds like a laundry detergent."
