See Clearly Now, I Can!Finally, a group wherein I can put forth clarity and release the confusion. Like LordVoldemort, I didn't relate to the new trilogy. As the original trilogy was released out of sequence (for monetary/popularity reasons, I think) the new one seemed non-sequitor. But having observed in entirety, it's so clear now. All is fixed and the mind-meld was a complete success! May the Force bring Long Life and Prosperity!
Considering the first Star Wars release ‘Episode IV: A New Hope’ and the 2009 remake of the original ‘Star Trek’ (this comparison strikes my fancy), there exist Seven Similarities:
- They both begin with a small ship being attacked by a much larger one (Millenium Falcon vs Battle Cruiser / USS Kelvin vs the Narada).
- This directly leads to a rebellious young farm boy who lives with his step-parent(s) and dreams of outer-space (Luke or Kirk).
- Only to meet an elder wise man who knew his true father (Jedi Master OB1-Kenobi or Captain Christopher Pike)
- Who ask him to join some crazy space mission and visit a bar full of aliens (both stories).
- Then has to go on a rescue mission on a ship in order to save someone with that partner he originally hated but ends up becoming good friends with by the end (Hans Solo or Spock).
- Then they end up destroying the evil large ship that can destroy planets (Death Star or Narada).
- Then medals are given out at some great ceremony (both stories).
You know, Star Trek, errr umm, Star Wars. And let us forget not, R2D2 discovered in 2009 Star Trek episode was he - video proof at:
And guess who would probably win? You guessed it, Star Wars!! How do we know? Because they're more advanced. For evidence that Star Wars is more advanced see the following video by noted physicist Michio Kaku:
