Carrie Fisher strikes back against William Shatner's Star Wars slam

Remember that video of William ShatnerStar Trek's own Capt. Kirk—in which the actor debated the differences between Trek and Star Wars while, of course, taking the side of Trek? The one where he said he'd run off with Princess Leia?

Well, Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher, is striking back at the Shat.

The funny rebuttal video was posted over at Trek News. Some of the video interview's highlights include quotes from Fisher such as:

"They're not in the same league. I mean, they have the word 'Star' in the title and there's a space travel, right? Where did they go to? Klingon? It sounds like a laundry detergent."

"Maybe it's just their effects. They're not called special effects."

Then Carrie Fisher says (in one of the video's funniest bits) that Bill Shatner once borrowed Princess Leia's famous metal bikini outfit from Return of the Jedi. Now, we'd pay a great deal of money to see THAT. Actually, on second thought, maybe we'd pay a great deal NOT to see it. (Now we've got a disturbing mental image of Kirk in that metal bikini that's just seared into our brains. Gah!)

But Fisher wants to see Shatner in his klinging Star Trek outfit again—in referral to her recent weight loss and wanting to get back into that bikini herself. She wants a ''costume-off.''

(Carrie Fisher is undoubtedly referring to that Capt. Kirk klingy outfit)

More of Fisher's zany quotes:

"My space buns were so much better than Nimoy's ears.''

"George [Lucas] allowed Bill one day to be in the Darth Vader costume and do the breathing and everything. I've never seen anyone so excited. He couldn't do it."

Then the Star Wars actress finishes off by saying : "If you see Bill Shatner, call him Han Solo."

But please, check out the crazy (and occasionally slightly NSFW) goofiness in the video below:

What do you think of that video? Would YOU want to see a ''costume-off'' between Carrie Fisher and William Shatner? Do you think it's time the hatchet between Star Wars and Star Trek fans be buried?

And who do you think should make a video rebuttal next? The ball is in the Star Trek court.
