Star Wars vs. Star Trek, the state-by-state analysis. This is a bit silly, as these sorts of things always tend to be, but whatever.
Rumors. Ali Arikan says that there are rumblings that Episode VII will begin filming on April 22.
Original original trilogy. Jeremy Conrad at Furious Fanboys has four reasons we won’t be seeing the original trilogy theatrical cuts released anytime soon. Long story short: A complete restoration would be super expensive and the rights issues with 20th Century Fox.
Remember when William Shatner ripped on Star Wars? Carrie Fisher has taken up the gauntlet.
Apples and oranges? Pot calling the kettle black? Space western vs. space opera? TV budget vs. film budget? There’s no denying that Star Wars is derivative of many things, but Trek doesn’t even makes the top ten.
Still, you can’t really blame the guy for being partisan to his own franchise. (Or wanting Kirk to run off with Leia)
EDIT: And speaking of derivative, Heilemann has something of a point about Trek and Forbidden Planet.
