William Shatner Is Right: Star Trek Is Better Than Star Wars
Obviously William Shatner isn’t exactly an unbiased source on these matters, but he makes some pretty good points in a new video in which he discusses that age old nerd question of which is better: Star Wars or Star Trek. Watch:
These points in particular resonated with me:
1. Star Trek was first, and influenced Star Wars. Star Wars is derivative.
2. Star Trek is about relationships and big, relevant sociological ideas. Star Trek is about humanity. Star Wars is really just an adventure movie.
3. Han Solo is probably just a special effect.
