Tell him he's the reason George Lucas sold Star Wars to Marvel. George Lucas hates Star Wars fans.

Hmmm. Might backfire. He might be like, "Of course he does, he's a Trekkie."

The goal here is to get rid of his ridiculous idea that just because he already likes Star Wars means that he's obligated to not like Star Trek. It's like a Megadeth fan who hates Metallica on principle rather than on their own merits.

Megadeth's basically a Christian conservative thrash metal band so fuck 'em anyway, but that's because they're them, and not because I'm a Metallica fan.

Well . . . there's always the 'false dichotomies are for grade-schoolers' argument. He's a big boy now and can handle expanding his tastes in a genre he enjoys. The world will not end. 

Although I really like PopeTom's suggestion. I'm tempted to do that to my roommates. Their heads will EXPLODE.

That won't work. Tried it by pointing out that he's the only person we know who thinks this, and that Villager, Aaron, and myself are perfectly fine with liking both. I even said that I am most definitely a Trekkie and not a Star Wars fan but that I rather liked Star Wars regardless. Doesn't matter. He's supporting the team in a rivalry that doesn't even really exist.

That is to say, a rivalry that doesn't exist for people who have sex, but happen to enjoy stories in space. Dude's having sex, so he has no excuse there.

Compare it to choosing sides between "Twilight" and "Harry Potter". Both of those are absolutely stupid retarded and people are drawing lines of battle over that shit. Or "Team Emo Werewolf" vs "Team Stalker Vampire". :P

Actually I quite like that idea, but switching it around.

:googling:

Me: Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?
Him: What?
Me: You know, Twilight. Do you want to see the sparkly wussy vampire or the shirtless token werewolf in a vampire film to tap that personality lacking poon?
Him: Twilight sucks.
Me: Oh so, you're not interest in choosing teams with something that sucks? Let's take that to it's logical [hehehe] conclusion.

But that's an interesting thing, does Lucas actually hate Star Wars fans?

For evidence of the above, I submit:

Death-dealing hormone freak of deliciousness
Pagan-Stomping Valkyrie of the InterbuttsÖ
Rampaging Slayer of Shit-Fountain Habitues

"My father says that almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know, everybody you see, everybody you talk to. He says that only a few people are awake, and they live in a state of constant, total amazement."

If Luna was a furry, she'd sex humans and scream "BEASTIALITY!" at the top of her lungs at inopportune times.

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

:spittake:

To be quite honest, I loved Enterprise and hated episodes 1-3.

Which means, at least from my perspective, while I like Star Wars, I consider the least liked Trek to be good, and the prequel trilogy to be terrible. Though I'll say III was way better than I and II.

I've noticed, at any rate, that Trekkies call the director in question, "Jar Jar Abrams"

Dorn is just a badass. He singlehandedly redifined the word Klingon. Brilliant acting. Patience of a saint, considering the makeup job.

Truth. I loved watching the evolution of his character through ST:NG and DS:9.

If I was going to go mmmm.... Trek actor/ress though...

I'd have to say Jolene Blalock (Subcommander T'Pol, Vulcan attache to the United Earth (not United Federation of Planets) starship Enterprise, NX-01.

Followed by, funny enough, Connor Trinneer (Commander Charles "Trip" Tucker III, chief engineer USS Enterprise NX-01, and Subcommander T'Pol's romantic interest)

I recently got Purple Fraggle into ENT, and we've been debating who's hotter, Trip, or Lt. Reed.

I was disappointed. Villager and I went to a Trek theme party and there was a song about Worf in the background giving away that he was going to marry Dax. Now, at this point she had gotten to DS9 (I started her on TNG, and we're eventually going to get to TOS), and had taken a particular interest in Trills, so, she was all about Dax like I would be as about Commander Shran, since I have a thing for Andorians, and Worf wasn't even on DS9 from her perspective yet, and I was like "oh god... I hope you're not listening"

And then suddenly she whips around and goes "Worf and Dax get married? Wait, Worf gets transferred to Deep Space 9?!"

She has no clue about Ezri though. No sad, sad, clue.

Fucking Ezri. What a simp. Haaaaaate.

Armin Shimmerman and Rene Auberjonois, awesome through out, saved that damn show for me at that point.

I haven't watched Enterprise, yet. Tasha Yar and Seven of Nine get a vote each. Aaaaand I'm too tired to think anymore. I'll sleep on it and see who else I come up with. :P
