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.""
