Watch: Shatner Rejects Takei’s Call For Star Wars/Star Trek Truce

George Take recently tried to call for a peace in the ongoing Star Trek / Star Wars “feud”, but William Shatner is more interested in keeping it going. Watch Bill’s video reply to George below.



Shatner rejects Takei call for Star Trek/Star Wars truce

First came Shatner’s online video in which he took several shots at Star Wars. Those comments prompted a response by Carrie Fisher, which in turn resulted in another online video from Shatner. This lead to George Takei jumping in and calling for galactic peace.

But Bill is having none of that. In a new video responds posted today, Shatner said Takei is the actually "the greatest threat to equanimity and peacefulness" to to carrying on their feud. And Shatner demands "retribution":

Without even watching yet, I love Shatner still. ( I know Harry, that’s irritating.)

January 9, 2012 5:23 pm

You have to admit he doesn’t look bad these days.

January 9, 2012 5:30 pm

Well I guess THIS is appropriate…


January 9, 2012 5:31 pm

Where the hell is he?

January 9, 2012 5:34 pm

As much as I like George, he should of kept out of it. It’s s bit of fun between Mr Shatner and Ms fisher

Hilarious. But he makes a good point (in an amusing way): who is GT to ask for peace when he’s been carrying on a stupid feud for decades. I can appreciate his desire to be funny but his involvement just seemed like trying to weasel in on some Internet “PR”.

Shat’s the man.

January 9, 2012 5:42 pm

@7 Agree 101%

Love GT but c’mon man…

January 9, 2012 5:47 pm

For once, I agree with Shat.

January 9, 2012 5:49 pm

Wow. This is getting good. I see a mud wrestling match coming up.

January 9, 2012 5:53 pm

Shatner looks so much like my dad it’s scary

There is a reason why Shatner is “captain”. Both make good points, but I have to lean to Shatner’s side.

However, I truly feel what George is doing is alright. My wife is fond of having “peace in our galaxy”.

@11 Patrick Stewart looks like mine:)

January 9, 2012 7:04 pm

Silly, childish…just embarrassing. Yet another reason to look forward to fresh blood in this upcoming sequel.

Amen to that Mr.Shatner!! :) Your the man!!

January 9, 2012 8:48 pm

see, now why can’t Mr. Takei take this stance towards ending his “feud” with Mr. Shatner? You can’t call to end the SW/ST “feud” without first burying the hatchet with your former series co-star…preferably the hatchet is not buried in someone’s flesh;)

January 9, 2012 9:01 pm

Ha. Oh my. Guys just kiss and make up.

George Takei is a third-rate celeb riding on the coattails of William Shatner and he knows it. Takei is jealous and is trying to steal some of the limelight from Shatner.

Btw, Shatner is a million times funnier than Takei will ever be.

January 9, 2012 9:37 pm

I’ve had no interest in following the Shat-Kei feud, but from what I’ve seen, Shatner’s a bit of a mean-spirited, childish instigator; hardly ‘the man.’ Nimoy’s the class act.

#20 don’t mince words, Red, what do you really think? :-D

(I happen to agree 100% with you though!)

January 9, 2012 11:40 pm

This is already a PR stunt. Yuck Yuck. And it IS quite amusing.

January 10, 2012 12:19 am

Well, at least we all know that ‘Star Trek’ is owned by CBS and ‘Star Wars’ is owned by Lucasfilm.

January 10, 2012 1:51 am

Its too bad that Shatner is mediocre at best. There are way more people who are funnier then him, and half the time they aren’t even trying to be funny.

Shatner keeps up his small-minded feud with Takei. Shame on him!

January 10, 2012 3:49 am


Loved BNS. Great stuff. Always titillating. Wouldn’t be the same if they did it today.

January 10, 2012 4:18 am

Get a room you three. You know you want to…

January 10, 2012 6:16 am

I think Shatner’s just mad he didn’t get a cameo in the 2009 movie.

January 10, 2012 6:22 am

one thing is for certain..
give the Shat an audience that doesn’t get his semse of humor and he will play them like a fiddle! well played Mr Shatner. well played indeed.

January 10, 2012 6:25 am

Shatner wins again. It was always going to happen.

January 10, 2012 6:51 am

The Shat has hit the fan and, yes, he’s THE MAN!!! So put that in your hookahs and smoke it ye Shat-detractors!! People who don’t like The Shat are just jealous girly-men.

I’m glad that your DVDs get on so well, but my vast collection of Star Trek DVDs started intimidating my 6 Star Wars DVDs, so Red Dwarf and Babylon 5 had to get in between them and break it up…

January 10, 2012 8:01 am

My Miami Vice dvd series keeps the peace in between TOS and Star Wars. And Ken Burn’s Civil War is there too, just to keep things in perspective with all that fiction.

January 10, 2012 8:14 am

Who cares anyways. Just be happy that both franchises exist so we have a CHOICE.

January 10, 2012 9:05 am

Shat doesn’t look a day over 60. Amazing.

George & Carrie Fisher on the other hand….

It’s called plastic surgery

I keep my “Star Trek” and “Star Wars” Blu Ray and dvd collections seperate. I doubt anything will happen, but I keep them seperate to ensure trouble doesn’t brew! :-D


Pretty sure Shatner hasn’t had plastic surgery.

January 10, 2012 12:22 pm

Shatner rules.

Go, Bill!!!

After the picture of Jabba Shat, there must have been a respond by Bill :-) and yes, Shatner rules! :

January 10, 2012 1:51 pm


Good stuff! It’s great to see that one again!

When are we going to see something new from that crazy warped brain of yours? Your Trek mashups are the best on the internet! I never get tired of your “Piece of the Action” one!

January 10, 2012 1:52 pm

I just hope people realise that none of this is serious and that they’re just playing for us.

Kirk, James T.
January 10, 2012 2:04 pm

Star Trek won’t be remembered for George Takei.
