George Takei urges Star Wars and Trek fans to unite against Twilight

In yet another chapter of the silly but extremely diverting William Shatner vs. Carrie Fisher video saga, actor George Takei is now trying to broker a peace between the two in order to unite all Star Trek and Sar Wars fans against their TRUE common enemy: Twilight.

(You can watch the whole Shatner-vs.-Fisher thing in order here, here and then here.)

Yes. It's true. Mr. Sulu himself has taken to YouTube to try and broker a peace between the warring factions of Trekkies and Star Wars fans in this new video.

Because, as we all know, the one true common enemy to ALL sci-fi fans out there is a movie saga that has sparkly vampires and a supernatural romance at its core.

Says Takei:

"Gone is any sense of heroism, camaraderie, or epic battle. In its place we have vampires that sparkle, moan and go to high school. Now, I'm not above mixing in a little sex appeal to spice up the fantasy, but sci-fi fans be warned, there are no great stories, characters or profound life lessons to be found in Twilight ... In Twilight, the only message that rings through loud and clear is: 'Does my boyfriend like me?'"

Will Takei's appeal for a common unity against Twilight prevail? Will the Shat and Carrie Fisher (as well as Star Trek and Star Wars fans) finally bury the hatchet after 30 years of conflict? Will a Star Peace finally reign?

We doubt that, but in the meanwhile, it makes for a heck of an entertaining ride, don't you think?
