William Shatner: Star Wars is “derivative” of Trek

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.

  1. The best part is how Zapp Brannigan James T. Shatner talks down Star Wars acting. Wow. Just wow. ;-)
