Mr. Sulu Brokers Star Peace By Dissing 'Twilight'
He's cool with aliens, but not sparkling vampires
Aww, Mr. Sulu, say it ain't so.
George Takei -- the film and television actor best known as "Mr. Sulu" from the 'Star Trek' series, currently a social media impresario, and now the self-appointed broker of Star Peace -- has done the unthinkable: smacking down 'Twilight.'
In an attempt to end the ridiculous 'Star Wars' vs. 'Star Trek' feud that William Shatner and Carrie Fisher have been escalating, Takei pleads for Star Peace, stating that the "new ominous threat to science fiction" is 'Twilight':
Gone is any sense of heroism, camaraderie or epic battles. 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. Nooo…In Twilight, the only message that rings through loud and clear is: 'Does my boyfriend like me?'
Check out the video. Not sure what is scarier, Shatner's belly or Fisher's cleavage.

Twilight is garbage. I wouldn't type that if they had written their own storyline instead of ripping off Underworld’s, and replacing the sci-fi vampires with creatures that are much closer to the description of fairies. Anyone who actually enjoyed Twilight is in need of a brain enema.
Star Trek = Best Sci-Fi Television Series Ever
Star Wars = Best Space Opera Movies Ever
Twilight = Garbage Targeted at Girls Age 12-15
Star Wars/Star Trek are great science fiction. Twilight is merely love stories for teenage girls (and those who still want to be teenage girls).
