#1: [HUMOR] - Differences Between "Star Wars" and "Star Trek"

Posted on 2005-05-28 15:54:00 by Stan Jensen

{Had to post it, bt hope it doesn't start another one of "those"
threads<g>}


Differences Between "Star Wars" and "Star Trek"

"Star Trek" geeks are 30 percent smarter, but "Star Wars" geeks have a
28-percent better chance of getting laid.

"Star Trek": "... where no man has gone before."
"Star Wars": Where has Hamill's career gone?

"Star Trek": Reroute the plasma inverters from the warp drive through
the main deflector grid after reversing phase polarity on the pattern
buffers.
"Star Wars": Use the Force.

"Star Trek": briefs.
"Star Wars": boxers (except for Yoda, who is notorious for going
commando).

About $5 billion and a buttload of talent.

Borg: cube.
Death Star: sphere.
Fans of both: square.

Both have fan-favorite characters with pointy ears, but nothing in
Spock's repertoire can bed female groupies quite like, "Pork you, I
will, yes!"

Capt. Solo got Leia.
Capt. Kirk got laid.

Kirk didn't care what it smelled like -- he went in there anyway.

No sophomoric "Star Wars" jokes about circling Uranus in search of
Klingons.

The "Star Trek" creator would likely abhor commercialization of the
series.
The "Star Wars" creator commercialized the series like a whore.

Wookiees never allowed to join the Federation of Planets due to their
stubborn refusal to wear pants.

"Star Trek" androids are noticeably less effete.

"Star Trek": Diversity achieved by insultingly fake Scottish and
Russian accents.
"Star Wars": Diversity achieved by insultingly real British and
American accents.

"Star Wars" alien created by multimillion dollar special effects crew.
"Star Trek" alien created by stick-on ears and eyebrow shaping.

"Star Wars": Muppets as aliens.
"Star Trek": humans with bumpy foreheads as aliens.

"Star Wars": three good movies.
"Star Trek": three good seasons.

Dude! "Wars" is a long time ago and far away! "Trek" is right here in
the future! Gosh!

Duh! One is a series of shows where individual courage and group
friendship overcome impossible odds and save the day and the other
isn't.

In "Star Trek," the "Force" is shorthand for what keeps Shatner's
toupee in place.

Kirk never knocked up anyone, alien or otherwise, and he certainly
never had the hots for his own sister.

Kirk-Spock homoeroticism more overt than that of Vader and Solo.

Ships in "Star Wars" don't use a realistic power source like dilithium
crystals.

The "Star Wars" role-playing game requires two dice, where the "Star
Trek" role-playing game... What the hell am I saying? Neither holds a
candle to the "Lord of the Rings" game!

The green-skinned dancing girls in "Star Wars" have tentacles on their
heads.

The only lightsaber in "Star Trek" was in Shatner's pants.

Tribbles don't even scratch the surface of annoyance created by Jar
Jar Binks.

Unlike phasers, lightsabers don't have any sissy "stun" setting.

Vader: "I am your father."
Kirk: "Am... I... your... father?"

William Shatner, rugged hero of "Star Trek," parlayed his success into
a sweet deal as a spokesperson for an online travel discount service.
What have *you* done, Harrison Ford?

Yoda's odd syntax was intentional. Kirk's just meant that Shatner was
butchering his lines again.

"Star Trek": cardboard sets.
"Star Wars": cardboard actors.

"Star Trek" fans sit in front of televisions watching reruns.
"Star Wars" fans sit in front of theaters that won't even be showing
the film.

Darth Vader needs the Force to make people gag.
William Shatner merely acts.

Some Trekkies are now old enough to have moved from their parents'
basement to the retirement home basement.

Lots of fans can speak Klingon, but only losers speak Wookiee.

"Trek": The bad guys are thinly disguised non-Americans.
"Wars": The bad guys are thinly disguised Americans.

"Star Wars": buns on the head.
"Star Trek": buns in the uniform.

Luke: "Well, not unless you can alter time, speed up the harvest or
teleport me off this rock."
C-3PO: "Not really, sir. Time travel and teleportation are more of a
'Trek' thing."

Lightsabers are powered by D cells, while phasers take a 9-volt.

Gene Roddenberry was a legendary pioneer of thought-provoking,
futuristic science fiction.
George Lucas created Jar Jar Binks.

Spock puts the TP on so it rolls over the top, whereas Vader likes it
to roll underneath.

Wookiees and Ewoks vs. Tribbles and toupees.

Substantially harder to hand-make a Chewbacca Halloween costume than a
Bones McCoy.

Besides the advantage of no one recognizing you, wearing the
stormtrooper costume keeps that parents'-basement skin pasty white!

"Star Trek": Everybody likes Seven of Nine.
"Star Wars": Nobody likes I of VI, or II of VI for that matter.

Shatner wears a girdle, but Jabba lets it all hang out.

"Star Wars" has the mystical power of the Force to lend gravitas to
the adventure, but "Star Trek" has the mystical power of chicks with
bigger hooters.

"Star Wars": Captain Solo always has a Wookiee at his side.
"Star Trek": Captain Kirk always has nookie on the side.

In one, you live long and prosper. In the other, you live large and
profit.

"Star Wars" fans don't refuse to honor the restraining order if it's
not translated into Klingon.

Captain Kirk always says, "To infinity and beyond!"
Darth Vader always says, "The Force is like a box of chocolates."

If Jar Jar Binks were on "Trek," Scotty would've given him a red shirt
and beamed him down to a hostile planet during the opening credits.

Hard-core "Star Wars" fans are all overweight, unattractive, diabetic
virgins who spend their free time and money building homemade
lightsabers.
Hard-core "Star Trek" fans are all overweight, unattractive, diabetic
virgins who spend their free time and money building homemade
tricorders.

Harrison Ford doesn't need to call 911 to ask if he should get his
wife from the bottom of the pool.

and the Number 1 Difference Between "Star Wars" and "Star Trek"...

I have no idea. And that, fanboy, is why *I* am not a virgin.

What, your force field is malfunctioning?

Put Data and 7of9 on the job.
They'll have your force field fixed in no time.

#9: [NEWS] - Chekov Treks To The Web

Posted on 2005-06-01 15:39:45 by Stan Jensen

Chekov Treks To The Web

Walter Koenig, who played Ensign Chekov in the original Star Trek
series, told SCI FI Wire that he is planning on starring in a
fan-based Internet short film that will give some finality to the
character he's been associated with for nearly 40 years.

&quot;This is a unique opportunity to give some dimension to my character,&quot;
Koenig said in an interview at Enigma Con at the University of
California, Los Angeles, over the weekend. &quot;I was most unhappy ...
that there wasn't a whole lot of dimension to the character. It was
push buttons and say 'Warp factor five' with as many inflections as
possible - and with an accent.&quot;

Koenig added that fans have approached him to do an in-depth story
about Chekov, and Koenig said he found an actor who looked eerily like
himself when he first boarded the Enterprise. &quot;He will play me in my
younger days, and I'll play the character as older, of course,&quot; Koenig
said. &quot;It will be a real gut-wrencher. If I perform properly, it will
work.&quot;

On board to write the script is D.C. Fontana, who wrote some of
Koenig's favorite stories in the original series, including &quot;This Side
of Paradise,&quot; &quot;Friday's Child&quot; and &quot;Journey to Babel&quot; and also worked
on the animated series he voiced in 1973. Koenig said that Paramount
Studios is on board, allowing the production to take place as long as
it is distributed for free on the Internet. He expects it to be
available in January.

&quot;Indeed it is fan-driven, but there are professionals in this business
who are fans and willing to work on it,&quot; Koenig said. &quot;It is cathartic
for me and an opportunity to reveal to the audience and the fans who
this man is. I want there to be some justification for all the
attention and acclaim that has been bestowed on us over these four
decades.&quot;

Koenig added: &quot;I'm doing it for fun and a sense of closure. It
vindicates something about myself.&quot;

Just one problem, Kirk never said &quot;To Infinity and beyond&quot;. That was Cmdr.
Peter Quincy Taggart in Galaxy Quest. The rest of this is hilarious, though.

I'd mentioned just the other day the the fanfic group Star Trek: New
Voyages was doing great things - well this is the group Walter Koening
D.C. Fontana, and Eugene Roddenberry are working with.

Link to article from CBC news Canada:
<a href="http://www.cbc.ca/story/arts/national/2005/05/27/Arts/koenig050527.html?ref=rss" target="_blank"> http://www.cbc.ca/story/arts/national/2005/05/27/Arts/koenig 050527.html?ref=rss</a>

I can't wait to see the new episode when it comes out... to see the old
ones, go to <a href="http://www.newvoyages.com/downloads.html." target="_blank">http://www.newvoyages.com/downloads.html.</a>

Enjoy what Trek you can...

I remember way back when the old series was canceled. Mr. Koenig was
asked about Star Trek, it's return, another series? . His reply way,
Star Trek is dead!!
And that is a quote!
Well, almost 40 years later.......................
It's great to have a wonderful long term memory.

Live long and prosper

&gt;Walter Koenig, who played Ensign Chekov in the original Star Trek
&gt;series, told SCI FI Wire that he is planning on starring in a
&gt;fan-based Internet short film that will give some finality to the
&gt;character he's been associated with for nearly 40 years.
&gt;
&gt;&quot;This is a unique opportunity to give some dimension to my character,&quot;
&gt;Koenig said in an interview at Enigma Con at the University of
&gt;California, Los Angeles, over the weekend. &quot;I was most unhappy ...
&gt;that there wasn't a whole lot of dimension to the character. It was
&gt;push buttons and say 'Warp factor five' with as many inflections as
&gt;possible - and with an accent.&quot;
&gt;
&gt;Koenig added that fans have approached him to do an in-depth story
&gt;about Chekov, and Koenig said he found an actor who looked eerily like
&gt;himself when he first boarded the Enterprise. &quot;He will play me in my
&gt;younger days, and I'll play the character as older, of course,&quot; Koenig
&gt;said. &quot;It will be a real gut-wrencher. If I perform properly, it will
&gt;work.&quot;
&gt;
&gt;On board to write the script is D.C. Fontana, who wrote some of
&gt;Koenig's favorite stories in the original series, including &quot;This Side
&gt;of Paradise,&quot; &quot;Friday's Child&quot; and &quot;Journey to Babel&quot; and also worked
&gt;on the animated series he voiced in 1973. Koenig said that Paramount
&gt;Studios is on board, allowing the production to take place as long as
&gt;it is distributed for free on the Internet. He expects it to be
&gt;available in January.
&gt;
&gt;&quot;Indeed it is fan-driven, but there are professionals in this business
&gt;who are fans and willing to work on it,&quot; Koenig said. &quot;It is cathartic
&gt;for me and an opportunity to reveal to the audience and the fans who
&gt;this man is. I want there to be some justification for all the
&gt;attention and acclaim that has been bestowed on us over these four
&gt;decades.&quot;
&gt;
&gt;Koenig added: &quot;I'm doing it for fun and a sense of closure. It
&gt;vindicates something about myself.&quot;

Posted on 2005-06-03 21:23:01 by Bozo the Evil Klown

Imperial Stormtroopers can't aim to (litarelly) save their lives,
Starfleet Security never even tries to aim.

Trek prequel sucked like a hull breach in open space, Wars prequels
blew like a bantha sneezing.

Trek prequel started showing signs of improvement too late, Wars
prequels finally decent once Lucas stopped making them.

Trek fans annoyed by Mary Sue genius Pestley Crusher, Wars fans annoyed
by Marley Should Sue moron Jar Jar Binks.

Trek uses pretty CGI to distract us from plot holes, Lucas uses CGI in
his Special Editions to create plot holes.

Original Trek borrowed heavily from &quot;Forbidden Planet,&quot; original Wars
borrowed heavily from &quot;Dune.&quot;

Intruders on Voyager or (NX-class) Enterprise can get away with
whatever they want, intruders on Death Star have to sacrifice one
character before the rest can get away with everything they want.

The Force fails to detect dangerous items like the Chancellor being the
embodiment of Eeeeeeeevil, while in Trek their sensors detect dangerous
space anomalies- they just blithely enter them anyway.

Some weeks they don't use money on Trek, while even the crappy Wars
prequels made butloads of cash.

Luke Skywalker had issues with his father, while Jim Kirk had issues
with his son.

Wars planetkiller easy to destroy with a one-man fighter, Trek
planetkiller has a hull impenetrable even by energy beams that could
trash a starship.

Wars retconned mitichlorians, Trek retconned, well... everything.

Luke Skywalker mentored by an old man, Ben Sisko calls his old mentor
&quot;Old Man.&quot;

&quot;Fandom Menace&quot; had pointless and seemingly endless pod race, &quot;Nemesis&quot;
had pointless and seemingly endless dune buggy race.

AI in Wars is commonplace and often friendly, AI in Trek is rare and
almost universally evil.

Wars lifted Coruscant from Asimov's classic Foundation trilogy, Trek
lifted conclusion to &quot;Marauders&quot; from Mel Brooks' classic &quot;Blazing
Saddles.&quot;

The Joker in the Eeeeeeevil Cabal Deck of Cards.

Flip4Mac's plugin is fantastic. I downloaded it, tried it out (it
actually played the audio and video in sync!), and paid the shareware

&gt; I just don't like the thought of having any software even remotely
&gt; related to Microsoft anywhere on my system.

Boy, what nerve. The rest of the functioning world has to deal with the
AutoCrash(tm), BSOD(pat pend.) and UpgradeSuckUDry(copyright) MisroSoft
software subsystems and YOU think you can avoid all this??

Just exactly who are you, anyway, to get this miracle cure????

Keeper&gt; How much is the shareware fee?

$9.99. (They also make several pricey apps for editing Windows Media and

Keeper&gt; Is Flip4Mac as compatible with WMV files as the Windows

Keeper&gt; (That'd be just like Microsoft...)

I don't know; you can download it and try it out for as long as you'd
like (unregistered versions will only play the first half of any file).

Hmm, guess who is the most successful software provider for the Mac
platform? Yep, Microsoft. Apple needs Microsoft, and Microsoft needs
Apple. MS is using Mac G5's as the development platform for the
upcoming Xbox 360, and I read that they make more money per Mac sold
than per Windows PC sold. They don't hate each other as much as their
&quot;fans&quot; do. At least, not anymore. :)

They both crash, they both have costly upgrades (how you can accuse MS
of this and not Apple is a mystery), and they both have sleezy
business practices. It's just that one is twenty times bigger (market
share) and needs to be watched more closely.

You know, as much as I distrust Microsoft's business ethics (or
complete lack thereof), I shudder to think what would have happened if
Apple had won the PC war. At least with MS winning world domination,
we really only have half of the monopoly. IBM quickly became
irrelevant in the PC market, which opened the door for competition and
plummeting prices. With Apple, the software *and* hardware would have
been part of the monopoly. Sure, this helps them be somewhat more
stable by controlling both ends, but it's no wonder the market
relegated them to niche status, in retrospect.

It's funny, Apple had a gigantic lead in OS technology, but stagnated
and then fell way behind MS. Now, with OSX they have caught up with
if not surpassed MS again. I haven't used it yet, but would love to
get an OSX box if I could find an excuse.

Sorry to take this even further OT... but I love this stuff, and am
tired of the fanboyism from both sides.

Ok, that is very cool of Paramount. This could be interesting. I

of any acting talent whatsoever. Well, ok, maybe Koenig doesn't help

Oh, I kid because I love. Their heart is in the right place. It will
be very interesting to see what comes of this. This really opens up
new &quot;legitimate&quot; possibilities for canon Star Trek on screen, without

&gt;&gt; threads&lt;g&gt;}
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Differences Between &quot;Star Wars&quot; and &quot;Star Trek&quot;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot; geeks are 30 percent smarter, but &quot;Star Wars&quot; geeks have a
&gt;&gt; 28-percent better chance of getting laid.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: &quot;... where no man has gone before.&quot;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: Where has Hamill's career gone?
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: Reroute the plasma inverters from the warp drive through
&gt;&gt; the main deflector grid after reversing phase polarity on the pattern
&gt;&gt; buffers.
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: Use the Force.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: briefs.
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: boxers (except for Yoda, who is notorious for going
&gt;&gt; commando).
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; About $5 billion and a buttload of talent.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Borg: cube.
&gt;&gt; Death Star: sphere.
&gt;&gt; Fans of both: square.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Both have fan-favorite characters with pointy ears, but nothing in
&gt;&gt; Spock's repertoire can bed female groupies quite like, &quot;Pork you, I
&gt;&gt; will, yes!&quot;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Capt. Solo got Leia.
&gt;&gt; Capt. Kirk got laid.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Kirk didn't care what it smelled like -- he went in there anyway.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; No sophomoric &quot;Star Wars&quot; jokes about circling Uranus in search of
&gt;&gt; Klingons.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; The &quot;Star Trek&quot; creator would likely abhor commercialization of the
&gt;&gt; series.
&gt;&gt; The &quot;Star Wars&quot; creator commercialized the series like a whore.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Wookiees never allowed to join the Federation of Planets due to their
&gt;&gt; stubborn refusal to wear pants.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot; androids are noticeably less effete.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: Diversity achieved by insultingly fake Scottish and
&gt;&gt; Russian accents.
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: Diversity achieved by insultingly real British and
&gt;&gt; American accents.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot; alien created by multimillion dollar special effects crew.
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot; alien created by stick-on ears and eyebrow shaping.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: Muppets as aliens.
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: humans with bumpy foreheads as aliens.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: three good movies.
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: three good seasons.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Dude! &quot;Wars&quot; is a long time ago and far away! &quot;Trek&quot; is right here in
&gt;&gt; the future! Gosh!
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Duh! One is a series of shows where individual courage and group
&gt;&gt; friendship overcome impossible odds and save the day and the other
&gt;&gt; isn't.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; In &quot;Star Trek,&quot; the &quot;Force&quot; is shorthand for what keeps Shatner's
&gt;&gt; toupee in place.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Kirk never knocked up anyone, alien or otherwise, and he certainly
&gt;&gt; never had the hots for his own sister.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Kirk-Spock homoeroticism more overt than that of Vader and Solo.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Ships in &quot;Star Wars&quot; don't use a realistic power source like dilithium
&gt;&gt; crystals.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; The &quot;Star Wars&quot; role-playing game requires two dice, where the &quot;Star
&gt;&gt; Trek&quot; role-playing game... What the hell am I saying? Neither holds a
&gt;&gt; candle to the &quot;Lord of the Rings&quot; game!
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; The green-skinned dancing girls in &quot;Star Wars&quot; have tentacles on their
&gt;&gt; heads.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; The only lightsaber in &quot;Star Trek&quot; was in Shatner's pants.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Tribbles don't even scratch the surface of annoyance created by Jar
&gt;&gt; Jar Binks.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Unlike phasers, lightsabers don't have any sissy &quot;stun&quot; setting.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Vader: &quot;I am your father.&quot;
&gt;&gt; Kirk: &quot;Am... I... your... father?&quot;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; William Shatner, rugged hero of &quot;Star Trek,&quot; parlayed his success into
&gt;&gt; a sweet deal as a spokesperson for an online travel discount service.
&gt;&gt; What have *you* done, Harrison Ford?
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Yoda's odd syntax was intentional. Kirk's just meant that Shatner was
&gt;&gt; butchering his lines again.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: cardboard sets.
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: cardboard actors.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot; fans sit in front of televisions watching reruns.
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot; fans sit in front of theaters that won't even be showing
&gt;&gt; the film.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Darth Vader needs the Force to make people gag.
&gt;&gt; William Shatner merely acts.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Some Trekkies are now old enough to have moved from their parents'
&gt;&gt; basement to the retirement home basement.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Lots of fans can speak Klingon, but only losers speak Wookiee.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Trek&quot;: The bad guys are thinly disguised non-Americans.
&gt;&gt; &quot;Wars&quot;: The bad guys are thinly disguised Americans.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: buns on the head.
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: buns in the uniform.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Luke: &quot;Well, not unless you can alter time, speed up the harvest or
&gt;&gt; teleport me off this rock.&quot;
&gt;&gt; C-3PO: &quot;Not really, sir. Time travel and teleportation are more of a
&gt;&gt; 'Trek' thing.&quot;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Lightsabers are powered by D cells, while phasers take a 9-volt.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Gene Roddenberry was a legendary pioneer of thought-provoking,
&gt;&gt; futuristic science fiction.
&gt;&gt; George Lucas created Jar Jar Binks.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Spock puts the TP on so it rolls over the top, whereas Vader likes it
&gt;&gt; to roll underneath.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Wookiees and Ewoks vs. Tribbles and toupees.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Substantially harder to hand-make a Chewbacca Halloween costume than a
&gt;&gt; Bones McCoy.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Besides the advantage of no one recognizing you, wearing the
&gt;&gt; stormtrooper costume keeps that parents'-basement skin pasty white!
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: Everybody likes Seven of Nine.
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: Nobody likes I of VI, or II of VI for that matter.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Shatner wears a girdle, but Jabba lets it all hang out.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot; has the mystical power of the Force to lend gravitas to
&gt;&gt; the adventure, but &quot;Star Trek&quot; has the mystical power of chicks with
&gt;&gt; bigger hooters.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: Captain Solo always has a Wookiee at his side.
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: Captain Kirk always has nookie on the side.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; In one, you live long and prosper. In the other, you live large and
&gt;&gt; profit.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot; fans don't refuse to honor the restraining order if it's
&gt;&gt; not translated into Klingon.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Captain Kirk always says, &quot;To infinity and beyond!&quot;
&gt;&gt; Darth Vader always says, &quot;The Force is like a box of chocolates.&quot;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; If Jar Jar Binks were on &quot;Trek,&quot; Scotty would've given him a red shirt
&gt;&gt; and beamed him down to a hostile planet during the opening credits.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Hard-core &quot;Star Wars&quot; fans are all overweight, unattractive, diabetic

&gt;&gt; Hard-core &quot;Star Trek&quot; fans are all overweight, unattractive, diabetic
&gt;&gt; virgins who spend their free time and money building homemade
&gt;&gt; tricorders.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Harrison Ford doesn't need to call 911 to ask if he should get his
&gt;&gt; wife from the bottom of the pool.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; and the Number 1 Difference Between &quot;Star Wars&quot; and &quot;Star Trek&quot;...
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; I have no idea. And that, fanboy, is why *I* am not a virgin.

I think Taggart's line was, &quot;Never give up, never surrender&quot;.

&quot;To Infinity and beyond&quot; is from Toy Story IIRC. &quot;Never give up..&quot; is
Taggart.

I was not wanting to be the one to mention it, but &quot;To Infinity and
Beyond.&quot;... that was Buzz Lightyear. Easy to confuse the two though, they
sound so dang similar. (g)

&gt; {Had to post it, bt hope it doesn't start another one of &quot;those&quot;
&gt; threads&lt;g&gt;}
&gt;
&gt;
&gt; Differences Between &quot;Star Wars&quot; and &quot;Star Trek&quot;
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot; geeks are 30 percent smarter, but &quot;Star Wars&quot; geeks have a
&gt; 28-percent better chance of getting laid.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: &quot;... where no man has gone before.&quot;
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: Where has Hamill's career gone?
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: Reroute the plasma inverters from the warp drive through
&gt; the main deflector grid after reversing phase polarity on the pattern
&gt; buffers.
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: Use the Force.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: briefs.
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: boxers (except for Yoda, who is notorious for going
&gt; commando).
&gt;
&gt; About $5 billion and a buttload of talent.
&gt;
&gt; Borg: cube.
&gt; Death Star: sphere.
&gt; Fans of both: square.
&gt;
&gt; Both have fan-favorite characters with pointy ears, but nothing in
&gt; Spock's repertoire can bed female groupies quite like, &quot;Pork you, I
&gt; will, yes!&quot;
&gt;
&gt; Capt. Solo got Leia.
&gt; Capt. Kirk got laid.
&gt;
&gt; Kirk didn't care what it smelled like -- he went in there anyway.
&gt;
&gt; No sophomoric &quot;Star Wars&quot; jokes about circling Uranus in search of
&gt; Klingons.
&gt;
&gt; The &quot;Star Trek&quot; creator would likely abhor commercialization of the
&gt; series.
&gt; The &quot;Star Wars&quot; creator commercialized the series like a whore.
&gt;
&gt; Wookiees never allowed to join the Federation of Planets due to their
&gt; stubborn refusal to wear pants.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot; androids are noticeably less effete.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: Diversity achieved by insultingly fake Scottish and
&gt; Russian accents.
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: Diversity achieved by insultingly real British and
&gt; American accents.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot; alien created by multimillion dollar special effects crew.
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot; alien created by stick-on ears and eyebrow shaping.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: Muppets as aliens.
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: humans with bumpy foreheads as aliens.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: three good movies.
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: three good seasons.
&gt;
&gt; Dude! &quot;Wars&quot; is a long time ago and far away! &quot;Trek&quot; is right here in
&gt; the future! Gosh!
&gt;
&gt; Duh! One is a series of shows where individual courage and group
&gt; friendship overcome impossible odds and save the day and the other
&gt; isn't.
&gt;
&gt; In &quot;Star Trek,&quot; the &quot;Force&quot; is shorthand for what keeps Shatner's
&gt; toupee in place.
&gt;
&gt; Kirk never knocked up anyone, alien or otherwise, and he certainly
&gt; never had the hots for his own sister.
&gt;
&gt; Kirk-Spock homoeroticism more overt than that of Vader and Solo.
&gt;
&gt; Ships in &quot;Star Wars&quot; don't use a realistic power source like dilithium
&gt; crystals.
&gt;
&gt; The &quot;Star Wars&quot; role-playing game requires two dice, where the &quot;Star
&gt; Trek&quot; role-playing game... What the hell am I saying? Neither holds a
&gt; candle to the &quot;Lord of the Rings&quot; game!
&gt;
&gt; The green-skinned dancing girls in &quot;Star Wars&quot; have tentacles on their
&gt; heads.
&gt;
&gt; The only lightsaber in &quot;Star Trek&quot; was in Shatner's pants.
&gt;
&gt; Tribbles don't even scratch the surface of annoyance created by Jar
&gt; Jar Binks.
&gt;
&gt; Unlike phasers, lightsabers don't have any sissy &quot;stun&quot; setting.
&gt;
&gt; Vader: &quot;I am your father.&quot;
&gt; Kirk: &quot;Am... I... your... father?&quot;
&gt;
&gt; William Shatner, rugged hero of &quot;Star Trek,&quot; parlayed his success into
&gt; a sweet deal as a spokesperson for an online travel discount service.
&gt; What have *you* done, Harrison Ford?
&gt;
&gt; Yoda's odd syntax was intentional. Kirk's just meant that Shatner was
&gt; butchering his lines again.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: cardboard sets.
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: cardboard actors.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot; fans sit in front of televisions watching reruns.
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot; fans sit in front of theaters that won't even be showing
&gt; the film.
&gt;
&gt; Darth Vader needs the Force to make people gag.
&gt; William Shatner merely acts.
&gt;
&gt; Some Trekkies are now old enough to have moved from their parents'
&gt; basement to the retirement home basement.
&gt;
&gt; Lots of fans can speak Klingon, but only losers speak Wookiee.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Trek&quot;: The bad guys are thinly disguised non-Americans.
&gt; &quot;Wars&quot;: The bad guys are thinly disguised Americans.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: buns on the head.
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: buns in the uniform.
&gt;
&gt; Luke: &quot;Well, not unless you can alter time, speed up the harvest or
&gt; teleport me off this rock.&quot;
&gt; C-3PO: &quot;Not really, sir. Time travel and teleportation are more of a
&gt; 'Trek' thing.&quot;
&gt;
&gt; Lightsabers are powered by D cells, while phasers take a 9-volt.
&gt;
&gt; Gene Roddenberry was a legendary pioneer of thought-provoking,
&gt; futuristic science fiction.
&gt; George Lucas created Jar Jar Binks.
&gt;
&gt; Spock puts the TP on so it rolls over the top, whereas Vader likes it
&gt; to roll underneath.
&gt;
&gt; Wookiees and Ewoks vs. Tribbles and toupees.
&gt;
&gt; Substantially harder to hand-make a Chewbacca Halloween costume than a
&gt; Bones McCoy.
&gt;
&gt; Besides the advantage of no one recognizing you, wearing the
&gt; stormtrooper costume keeps that parents'-basement skin pasty white!
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: Everybody likes Seven of Nine.
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: Nobody likes I of VI, or II of VI for that matter.
&gt;
&gt; Shatner wears a girdle, but Jabba lets it all hang out.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot; has the mystical power of the Force to lend gravitas to
&gt; the adventure, but &quot;Star Trek&quot; has the mystical power of chicks with
&gt; bigger hooters.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot;: Captain Solo always has a Wookiee at his side.
&gt; &quot;Star Trek&quot;: Captain Kirk always has nookie on the side.
&gt;
&gt; In one, you live long and prosper. In the other, you live large and
&gt; profit.
&gt;
&gt; &quot;Star Wars&quot; fans don't refuse to honor the restraining order if it's
&gt; not translated into Klingon.
&gt;
&gt; Captain Kirk always says, &quot;To infinity and beyond!&quot;
&gt; Darth Vader always says, &quot;The Force is like a box of chocolates.&quot;
&gt;
&gt; If Jar Jar Binks were on &quot;Trek,&quot; Scotty would've given him a red shirt
&gt; and beamed him down to a hostile planet during the opening credits.
&gt;
&gt; Hard-core &quot;Star Wars&quot; fans are all overweight, unattractive, diabetic
&gt; virgins who spend their free time and money building homemade
&gt; lightsabers.
