7-Round Intergalactic Nerd Franchise Deathmatch
Factor 1: Originality
Turns out the creators of Star Wars are some of the greatest plagiarizers the world has ever known.
Star Trek hit the tubes Sep 8, 1966. Star Wars... almost 11 years later reared its head on May 22, 1977. You can build quite a case against an enemy if you've had over 10 years to exploit their weaknesses and craft a new tale.Star Trek: 1 | Star Wars: 0
Factor 2: Character Sensuality
A picture is worth a thousand words, so, we'll just leave you with this...
Factor 3: Cleanest Asses
There's no competition when Chewie has to take sheep shears to his ass every other Tuesday so his backside doesn't look like peanut butter smeared on a shag carpet.
Even Klingons don't have cling ons.Star Trek: 3 | Star Wars: 0
Factor 4: Infliction of Collateral Damage
While William Shatner is making mills off Priceline by hocking cruises to old ladies who don't know how to use the internet, Harrison Ford has been a hostile threat since the first time the Han hopped in the pilot's seat.
Factor 5: Reviled Character Creation
Jar Jar was meant to be a star and ended up the most hated character in the history of cinema, even among Star Wars fans. That would be like New England hating Tom Brady.
Factor 6: Enterprise Sell-Out-Ability
For $4 billion. To Disney. In case you've been living under a rock.Star Trek: 3 | Star Wars: 3
|Factor 7: Use of Sexual Taboos
It doesn't get much more taboo than incest.
