Special Features


Editorial Reviews

For years, STAR WARS fan have squared off against STAR TREK fans over which space fantasy is the better choice. As a result, both franchises have been embroiled in a continuing battle for merchandise sales, publicity and box-office receipts. The science-fiction genre has never seen anything like it and, as these fictional universes continue to expand, the competition seems to be never ending. Star Wars vs. Star Trek: The Rivalry Continues compares the space opera worlds of George Lucas and Gene Roddenberry for a one-of-a-kind intergalactic documentary. It traces the origin and development of STAR TREK from conception to the spin-offs and film series. It also takes an in-depth look at STAR WARS from its sci-fi influences in the past to its continuing box-office clout. Interviews with such stars as William Shatner, George Lucas, Leonard Nimoy, Anthony Daniels, Bill Dee Williams, Carrie Fisher, James Doohan and many more help to explain the amazing phenomenon. Whether you're a Trekkie or a Jedi Knight, this is one show you won't want to miss!

Star Wars Premiere/The Star Trek Experience:

Collectors' bonus! Enjoy the comprehensive coverage of the 1997 re-release of STAR WARS and the opening of the Las Vegas attraction THE STAR TREK EXPERIENCE. Also included are the complete interviews with Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Liam Neeson, Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible January 3, 2008
This documentary provided nothing new: no fresh interviews, no insightful information and no non-stock footage of the characters, directors and writers. I take that back. There were several original shots of long lines outside of movie theaters, taken by an obvious amateur videographer. Sadly, this is the only documentary that covers a very deep and worthwhile topic. For its lack of professionalism, the flick did raise some interesting questions, such as why hasn't Star Wars made it on the television and Star Trek has? That is very important now that George Lucas recently announced plans for a Star Wars tv series. Perhaps, a real documentary team will give this topic the attention it deserves.

1.0 out of 5 stars bored August 19, 2003
Anybody who wants to 'dis' either series needs to get a life. Both have major entertaining values and is just a matter of personal opinion. I personally prefer Star Trek because it is more scientifically acurate, however Star Wars is a lot of fun. The point being IT DOESN'T MATTER! But onto the review of this dvd, It is just some schmuck's way of getting a quick buck off of die hard fans of one or the other (just like this latest Jason vs. Freddie Movie). The technical side of this movie is just so bad, that unless your into home movies, I wouldn't have spent a dime on it (and didn't since I returned it and got a refund).

Unless you are a true fan it's not worth owning. There are some redeemimg qualities but it is poorly done.

2.0 out of 5 stars Yawn September 21, 2003
If you're a fan of either series, then guess what? You're a geek, just like me. If you're arguing over which is better, however, you are a looser. Big difference.
To get into the nuances of either series would take forever, but the concept of compairing these two is silly. First of all, any preferece would be a matter of opinion. If you like big explosions and an almost western style of Good vs. Evil, you would tend toward Star Wars. If you like a more technical delivery of tougher moral choices, Star Trek is your game. Compairing them because they both have "star" in title is ridiculous at best, as they are in very different sub-genres. It would be like "Star Man" vs. "Star Search".
Star Wars is a space opera, and is comperable to Dune or Battlestar Galactica, two sources Lucas has admitted to drawing heavily from. Star Trek falls into a military sci-fi, and is best compaired to Babylon 5 or Andromeda. A clear case of apples and oranges, it makes as much sense as compairing "The Good the Bad and the Ugly" with "Moulin Rouge".
In short, get a life.

5.0 out of 5 stars if you own this dvd please write a review February 27, 2002
By A Customer
Hi, These other guys aren't even talking about the dvd! All they talk about is whether or not there should be a Star Wars vs Star Trek. If you've actually bought this dvd please write a review. If you want to debate on an issue you have then go to a message board or something but don't do it here. This is for people that want to buy the dvd and are looking for another's opinion on the "DVD". Thanks
