I want answers.
I have questions for the ages.
These questions are important.
Today I will ask the SECOND of 50 BURNING QUESTIONS.
YOU will provide the answer. YES YOU. I’ve got a poll below. Don’t just say you like this post. Answer the poll question.
Please comment as well if you want. I encourage it.
BURNING QUESTION #2
Which is it? Star Wars or Star Trek?
You can base this on anything you want. Is it the hotness level of Chris Pine vs Harrison Ford? Tribbles vs Ewoks? Is it the never ending television series or movies? Seriously I love this stuff but only the good stuff. Both have a lot of crappy movies and TV associated with them. Both have been overdone to death. Both are like car wrecks – you don’t want to look but you can’t take your eyes off of it.
You have to admit, that despite the special effects and science fiction settings, both stories are stories of the close bonds of friendship and loyalty.
YOU KNEW this would be one of the questions. I’m getting it out of the way early.
All of that said, Star Wars and Star Trek have narratives of friendship, loyalty, hot guys, and the thrill of discovery that have become embedded into our culture. They are our campfire stories. They are our legends. They spark the emotions and the imagination.
So what do you think? Maybe you don’t. Just do the poll.
