Star Wars Vs. Star Trek

Star Wars Vs. Star Trek


What’s your pick, Star Wars or Star Trek? As a movie critic, I admire both series. I believe they complement each other. What would Stars Wars be without Star Trek, and vice-versa? The answer: a monopoly.

Nobody likes monopolies. People want choices. Picture only drinking Pepsi. There’s been a universal ban of Coca-Cola. We can go to McDonald's, but Burger King has gone out of business. That would be the day!

You see Star Trek needs Star Wars just as much as summer needs winter? Rather than picking one, let’s appreciate it all.

Star Wars offers something valuable and so does Star Trek. Its characters Darth Vader, Yoda and R2-D2 fascinate me. James Earl Jones’ voice is legendary.

What is Star Trek’s answer: Spock. Oh yeah, William Shatner wasn’t too bad either.

On the flip side, Spock. Spock exemplifies the future of space travel. He’s the leader you want in case of an all out galactic universal war.

Star Trek has the most devoted fans. Star Wars’ fans seem flaky. Numbers matter in the entertainment industry.

In financial terms, Star Wars leaves Star Trek behind in the Star Dust. By the way, who is a fan of Star Dust? Star Wars is worth $30 billion.

From a marketing perspective, Star Wars has a clear advantage. Who remembers taking a Star Wars lunchbox to Kindergarten? Merchandise is a big part of the equation.

As a child, I had Star Wars’ toys. Does Star Trek even make toys? Call me superficial, but I am in awe at the commercial success of Star Wars.

Star Wars captures your imagination. That’s why it’s better. And, It’s bigger too.
