Star Wars vs Star Trek takes a look at socially-awkward suburban teens and their attempts at connecting to each other through science fiction fan clubs. Their fantasy world has strict rules and those that break them can be ostracized and left out on their own. A budding relationship between a boy and girl is threatened by their own awkwardness and the strict rules of their fan club. And ultimately; which is better? Star Wars or Star Trek?
Gabe- (With a tin hat on his head)The question of the ages since the 1970's The question that has divided society, that has pitted geek against geek, fan against fan, live action role player against live action role player; is which is better, Star Wars or Star Trek? Are the various Captain Kirk's and the various Enterprises any match for Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewie and the Millenium Falcon? Is Darth Vader more evil than Khan or Kang? To find out the answers to these extraterrestrial questions, and to observe teenage nerd dating habits we go to the source, we go live to suburbia. To Nerdsville, the socially dysfunctional nerve centre of bright teens everywhere.
Ryan- Wasn't that great Elliot?
Elliot-It was awesome. It was like Star Wars plus eight.
Gabe-I could totally see the green screen effects and what's with the cgi? I think Lucas has lost it.
Elliot-Don't be so negative. Don't rain on our adolescent adoration. Star Wars is the best.
Gabe-I was just offering my opinion.
Ryan- But regarding Star Wars, dissenting opinions are not allowed.
Brogan-Hey fellahs. That was great.
Ryan-Oh hi Brogan.
Elliot- Thanks for buying the popcorn, the drinks and the tickets.
Brogan- I am your girl friend remember?
Star Wars vs Star Trek is a funny and poignant look at smart and computer literate kids and their painfully awkward attempts at making connections in the real world.
