Summary and Commentary will focus on the following excerpts Prologue Strong Son of God, immortal Love, Whom we, that have not seen thy face, By faith, and faith alone, embrace, Believing where we cannot prove; Thine are these orbs of light and shade; Thou madest Life in man and brute; Thou madest Death; and lo, thy foot Is on the skull which thou hast made. Thou wilt not leave us in the dust: Thou madest man, he knows not why, He thinks he was not made to die; And thou hast made him: Thou seemest human and divine, The highest, holiest manhood, thou.
Among his issues with Star Wars and George Lucas, whom he accused of "having an agenda", is that the Star Wars galaxy is too "elitist", with arbitrary rulers on both the evil and good sides, replacing one another without any involvement of the population.
He criticizes both sides of the Galactic Civil War as part of the "same genetically superior royal family". In contrast, he argues that, despite its flaws, Star Trek is "democratic" and follows genuine issues and strong questioning. According to him, "Star Trek had relationships and conflict among the relationships and stories that involved humanity and philosophical questions.
Abrams became involved, Star Trek was able to "supersede Star Wars on every level". Voyagerclaims that it is difficult to find common enough elements to be able to compare the two. Among those common elements are their similar settings of unique characters and technologies. He echoed Shatner that Star Trek reflects common human issues, the morals of exploration and considers ethical questions.
Star Wars in his view is a classic medieval tale dressed up as action-adventure, and that embraces the Eastern philosophy of inner-strength. Russ concludes that despite both their success and popularity, Star Trek comes out as the better of the two, as it is set in "our" galaxy and therefore people can relate better to it, whereas Star Wars takes place in another galaxy.
He acknowledged that he could be biased. He is a huge fan of Star Trek: He argued that while both franchises are popular, Star Wars comes out as the superior, for its soundtracks and special effects. Herzthe of The New York Times argued, "Trek fandom revolves around technology because the Star Trek universe was founded on ham-fisted dialogue and Gong Show-caliber acting.
But the fictional science has always been brilliant. The science in Star Wars is nonsense, and everyone knows it.
But no one cares because Star Wars isn't about science. It's about those incredibly well-developed characters and the moral decisions they face. People don't get into debates about how the second Death Star works. They get into debates about the ethics of blowing it up. Star Wars is the capitalist show.
Star Trek is the communist one". He further stated "There is no money in Star Trek because you just have the transporter machine that can make anything you need. The whole plot of Star Wars starts with Han Solo having this debt that he owes and so the plot in Star Wars is driven by money.
It was young King Arthur growing up, slaying the evil emperor finally. There's nothing wrong with that kind of entertainment - everything doesn't have to create a philosophy for you - for your whole life.
You can also have fun. Star Wars sources and analogues The two franchises have a "symbiotic relationship" stated Shatner, who credits Star Wars for launching the Star Trek films. He clarified this statement by explaining that at the time of the release of the first Star Wars film A New HopeParamount, then under new management, was struggling to come up with something that could compete with it.
A Star Trek relaunch was the choice. Since then, public interest has returned to Star Trek. A few years earlier, Roddenberry had contributed an entry in honor of Star Wars and Lucas at a convention honoring the latter.
In a interview, Shatner commented that Captain Kirk and Princess Leia eloping and running off into the sunset would be the "perfect union" between Star Trek and Star Wars.
Amongst them were commemorating the 35th anniversary of the poorly received Star Wars Holiday Special. The Final Frontieranother poorly received film.
