Ready to Rumble? ‘Star Trek’ versus ‘Star Wars’
So on and so heated, I’ll just sit this one out in a real world far, far away … or something like that.
When it comes to these franchises, most people believe that they are the same. However, they are nothing alike. Star Trek is considered a space western, but it really is not. This franchise is more like a futuristic ‘Age of Discovery’. The Enterprise spaceship can be compared to Christopher Columbus’ fleet of ships venturing into the “New World”. In this case the “New World” is a planet. Star Trek is a voyage and a more optimistic story than Star Wars.
