What the h*ll is on George Lucas's noggin. Most unbiased people will agree his 4th overrated, badly acted film was horrible save for special effects. Now he's gonna p*ss off millions of true Star Wars fans (me not being one) to make his daughter happy. I guess she really wants her fathers career to end

I asked some Star Wars fans (me being one) the reaction. Most of them are watching there world collapsing around them again (after TPM caused it to crash). Come on guys, they will be in it for a whole 5 seconds. And they die. They won't sing, we won't know it is them (unless you check the background) and they die. Heck, I can't wait to watch them die!

Star Trek
"If we remodulate the transmittor to release a photon pulse, followed by 3 photon torpedos and 4 shots from our forward phaser arrays, we might be able to destroy the enemy."

Star Wars
"Just shoot the **** thing."

Star Trek uses too much science, Star Wars uses more mystical stuff (The Force, based off Qi). Star Wars uses more...history stuff. Obi-Wan looked like a Samurai without the armor (the white gi with the brown robes covering him). And Darth Vader's helmet was based off the Kabuto. Star Trek uses more science. My best friend is a Star Trek nut, and I had to watch the 6th film 3 times before I understood how the hell they destroyed that Klingon ship. That was pretty cool though. Most of the time I don't get what they are saying, and it bores me (slingshotting around our sun to travel through time?!)

My biggest problem with Star Trek is the forced utopia feeling I get from the whole thing. Seems to embrace socialism, gun control, political correctness to the nth degree...all the stuff that rubs me the wrong way. Bear in mind this was my impression from Next Gen, I never had time to follow all the plot twists in Deep Space 9 (which I heard rocked since it was a sort of "frontier" place), Voyager, etc.
Star Wars gets my vote...minus The Phantom Menace...let's just say I feel the Star Wars Universe is cooler than the Star Trek Universe. Star Wars just needs to avoid the attempts to "make cute, lovable characters", if they paid any attention at ALL they noticed that Maul was the most popular character in the last film...there's a reason for that. I don't care if N'Sync makes a cameo and gets blasted, it'll be no more distracting than the fact that Samuel Jackson is a jedi. It was a mistake to go with "celebrities" for roles in the new movie, Lucas may as well drag them all in now.

I admit that i dont know whats going on half the time with the warp drive this and the trans-phasic that but i grew to love Star Trek because my mother watched it. Deep Space 9 has more Mystical stuff than you could imagine. I can't decide to like something that only has 8 hours of footage compared to 1000's of episodes of Star Trek. It's all about the story to me. The only Star Treks that i dont like are the first series which i never really got to watch and the new Enterprise show. Its hard to go back to old technology when you've been going Warp 9.6 for years so to speak. Oh yea, Princess Amidala will never compare to Seven of 9 :D

hmmm... as a kid I always wondered what would happen if the Enterprise accidentially went through a worm hole & ended up in a Galexy Far Far away...

Tie fighter's bouncing off of deflector shields...

Worf getting whupped by a Jedi...

Lightsabers deflecting phaser blasts...

Data & R2d2

the away team transporting unto a Star destroyer!!!

it would be GREAT!!!
------

I found episode 1 to get a little STAR TREKKIE with it's Middiclorian reading's and scanning for the force & such...

The thing with Star trek is that it's still connected with Human History, while Star wars is not remotely connected with earth

no body's mentioned BATTLE STAR GALACTICA either?

One of the most TREMENDOUS ideas for a Voyager plot I've EVER heard was (so I heard) passed on by Lucas and company. They had considered having Voyager (near the end of it's run) come upon a huge destroyed/abandoned fleet...and looking at the fleet it turns out to be...Star and Super Star Destroyers, X-Wings, Tie Fighters, Mon Calimari Cruisers, etc. that've been floating dead for untold centuries. After all, Voyager is supposed to be in a "Galaxy Far, Far Away". There was even some talk about making the Borg descendants/destroyers of the Star Wars universe...but, I read that Lucas wanted to keep his options open about Episodes 7 on up.
Might have been ridiculous talk and heresay...but, imagine how AMAZING that would have been! The coolest tie-in in movie/T.V. history...easily.

I heard this morning that the cameo of the boy band has been cut....too many fan objections. HURRAH for the sci-fi geek power residing in us all!

Design Sifu, the midi cholorian crap was actually something Lucas created back in 77 when he did the original trilogy. He just never had the chance to discuss how Jedi use the power. John Williams claims that Lucas finished EP3 already (the script anyway) and that the ending will have a plot twist equal to "Luke, I am your father".

Oh and guys, I hate to break it to you, but the 'N Sync scene has been shot. And it will not be revealed if it will be in the movie or not until the last few weeks of the movie (there scene might have some relavance to the movie). So they might still be in it.

Besides, who cares? I mean come on, you will see it anyway (unless you totally hate Star Wars like Budokan) and I even heard one guy said "Lucas can be on the screen for 2 hours giving everyone the finger as he multiplies and it will still be a blockbuster."

Oh, and I doubt that Star Trek Voayager thing was true or not. Lucas said years ago he was not going to do 7, 8 or 9 because he'd be too old. He is already like mid 50s and he still has to make it to 2005. He would in close to 70 by the time he did 7-9. Since it takes 3 years per movie, say Lucas is 55 now. He will be 58 when he finishes the last movie. If he did 3 more, that is another 9 years, so he'd be 67. Imagine the crap he'd be putting in by then!

Don't y'all realize? N'Sync blown up in a battle?? Now that's one of the most instant gratifying scene I can think about on the moment :D
Blow N'Sync, Blow!!!!
If only he could hire Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin to make them play in some scene where they get eaten by a Hut, that would be even better...and Celine Dion chained to the Hut too, forced to sing, then eaten too...sorry, I got carried away ;)

I saw a video from a Saturday Night Live from last week where they were doing a skit about 'N Sync. Pretty funny stuff too.

George Lucas
"There certainly have been alot of rumors about Attack of the Clones, from 'fans' about *N Sync being in the movie. Got alot of nasty e-mails on the subject. I guess the pimply face nerd who got a Darth Vader backpack for his 40th birthday knows more about Star Wars than ME, the creator. Just forget about *N Sync, you won't even notice them." talks about how the new movie was shot on a digital camera (no joke)

Switch to scene with Obi-Wan and Mace Windu

Mace Windu "Does Anakin Skywalker have enough Midichlorians to join the Jedi Council? You're d*amn right he dont!"

Obi-Wan "Anakin is the only one who can restore power to the Force and save the Republic from the evil Count Dooku, right...*N Sync?" (Dooku is the new bad guy, played by Christopher Lee)

*N Sync member "Thats right Obi-Wan Kenobi. Cause we're here to save the galaxy and tell kids to stay in school. And (entire group) ain't no lie, baby, bye, bye, bye!"

More talk, all about Jar Jar Binks and Lucas saying he has billions and doesn't give a **** if people see it or not.

New scene:

Obi-Wan "Master Windu, we have but one choice."

Mace "I know Obi-Wan."

Obi-Wan "We have to do it. In order to save the universe from tyranny and depression, we have to...let *N Sync kick the funk out nikity new school style."

Mace "Ladies and gentlemen! *N Sync!"

*N Sync member (probably JC since only him and Justin sing) "Oh girl, you know I love you."

Voice "All Jedi report to space station Alpha Quadrant by order of the Force."

*N Sync "Oh girl, it aint over yet! You broke up my heart as if you were overfed (huh?)"

more dancing and singing, I got no idea what they are singing/saying. Pretty funny ****. You can download it over at http://www.theforce.net (its about 5 minutes and a 1.5 meg Real Player file. Check in the EP2 section. It's worth it)
