'Star Wars' > 'Star Trek,' says Carrie Fisher

Posted on

The-39-Clues-booksCarrie Fisher fired back at William Shatner for comments he made in September that Star Trek is better than Star Wars. In an interview posted on her YouTube, Fisher said, “They’re not in the same league. I mean, they have the word ‘Star’ in the title.” She knocked Star Trek‘s budget: “Maybe [it’s] just their ‘effects,’ they’re not called ‘special effects’ in the case of [Star Trek].”

In response to Shatner’s claims Fisher never fit into Princess Leia’s famous metal bikini, she cracked, “By the way, Bill has borrowed it,” and she challenged him to a costume-off. Oh snap, it’s about to get real in here. Watch Fisher’s full comments, including digs at Shatner’s nether regions and Leonard Nimoy’s Spock ears, after the jump.

What do you think, PopWatchers? What was your favorite jab? (For my money, it’s “Klingon? It just sounds like a laundry detergent!”) Where do you stand in this debate: Team Trek or Team Wars?
