George Lucas and JJ Abrams

Star Wars vs. Star Trek. Which sci-fi saga reigns supreme? From this picture that’s been zipping around the web at warp eight, George Lucas and J.J Abrams want to settle this personally. Georgie’s weapon of choice? A lightsaber with customized iPod mounted in the hilt. He’ll dispatch Abrams to the rousing sounds of the London Philharmonic. Young and sneaky, Abrams plans to taunt Lucas with a very sexy blaster. Will he shoot him under the table like Han Solo? Maybe he’ll flash it in Lucas’s face. The old man won’t know until it’s too late.

The picture posted on Flickr was originally photographed at a luncheon by Joi Ito. Someone photo-shopped in the lightsaber. Ito is searching for the perpetrator. I don’t really know why this is so popular. It looks like the cantina scene from Star Wars: A New Hope. How long is this funny for? 15 seconds? Abrams may be reloading the Star Trek franchise, but he’s not a sci-fi master yet. The joke will be funnier if the movie’s a success. Sure, not many are looking forward to Lucas’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars in August. But if I want to see a made up rivalry, I’ll stick to watching an episode of The Hills.
