Literal 'Star' Wars!
In September, William Shatner boldly went where few have gone before, saying, "Star Wars is derivative of Star Trek."
He went on to explain, "Star Trek had relationships and conflict among the relationships and stories that involved humanity -- Star Wars was special effects. It was ILM at its best." The Shat even took a swipe at Carrie Fisher, saying, "Princess Leia, as beautiful as she was and as wonderful an actress as she [Carrie] is can't compare to the marvelous heroines we had on Star Trek. I’m not saying that's just the only thing that makes Star Trek better than Star Wars. I'm saying the stories were better."

Well, Carrie caught wind of this diss and released a video reply for William today where she says, "They're not in the same league. I mean they have the word 'Star' in the title and there's a space travel, right?"
Carrie went on to sling a few more arrows at Shatner, talking about the time he sold a kidney stone online and how he couldn't fit into his Star Trek costume today. Not to be a dick Carrie, but ... do you really want that table turned?
Check out Carrie's video here and then weigh in: Star Trek vs. Star Wars, where do you stand?
