+ - Princess Leia Strikes Back - at Captain Kirk 3

Hugh Pickens writes writes "Tony Hicks writes that 'The Lucas Empire Strikes Back' as Princess Leia has rebuffed Captain Kirk's recent assertions that "Star Trek" is better than "Star Wars." William Shatner began the feud in a video tweeted to his fans: "First of all, 'Star Wars' is derivative of 'Star Trek' by what, 10, 15, 20 years? Derivative. 'Star Trek' had relationships and conflict among the relationships, and stories that involved humanity and philosophical questions. 'Star Wars' was special effects!" Those were apparently fightin' words and Princess Leia wasn't happy. "They're not in the same league," declared Carrie Fisher. "I mean, they have the word 'star' in the title, and there's space travel, right? Where did they go? Klingon? It just sounds like a laundry detergent." Fisher had the final word. "My space buns — they're so much better than Nimoy's ears.""

    TOS had quite a few humanoid women running around in risque clothing too.

  • I always though Leia had cute buns, but I don't see how you compare that part of the anatomy with ears.

      Easy, they're both about space.

      Bonus, appending space in front of the words means you can get a separate patent for what would otherwise be denied due to prior art.

      But I agree, I'd much rather look at her buns than his ears.

      Same if you compare her pointy things to his.
