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!

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.

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.

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.
