It's Star Trek vs. Star Wars, but not in the way you think. William Shatner decided to good-naturedly rib Mark Hamill over Twitter about Hamill's upcoming star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, California.

"Congratulations!" tweeted Shatner. "BTW ask for a star on the south side of the street. I’m on the north side and don’t want to devalue the neighborhood." 

Shatner was awarded a star in 1983 for his portrayal of Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise on the original Star Trek TV show in the 1960s and its ensuing films. 

social-media"Thanks, Bill," Hamill responded. "It wouldn't be as special without a classic Shatner-burn from you! Live Long, But Get Lost- , mh."

social-mediaShatner is no stranger to making fun of his fellow celebrities via social media. Back in November, he accidentally blocked Star Trek: Discovery's Jason Isaacs on Twitter. After unblocking Isaacs, he wrote "He who must not be named’s bff is now unblocked," in a comical reference to the British actor's role of Death Eater Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies. 

The ceremony for the installation of Hamill's star will be held on March 8 and co-hosted by George Lucas and Harrison Ford.
