William Shatner rejects peace talks with 'Star Wars' fans

January 11, 2012 - Wellington

William Shatner, who has shot down all hopes for a peace deal between 'Star Wars' and 'Star Trek' fans, has now called for retribution.

Fellow 'Star Trek' actor George Takei had called last month for devotees of both franchises to unite against the mutual threat to all science fiction 'Twilight'.

However, his superior Shatner, who played Captain James T. Kirk in the original 'Star Trek' series, has hammered down on his Lieutenant's quest to broker a peace in the decade-long feud between Trekkis and 'Star Wars' devotees.

"George, ??u're the biggest hazard to calmness and peacefulness," quoted Shatner as saying in a video message.

"You've carried on an argument for all these years. You can't just disintegrate in a matter of words. Retribution must be paid, George. We need retribution," he said.

Since the Millenium Falcon first arrived on movie screen in 1977, 'Star Wars' fans and supporters of Cpt Kirk and his crew on the USS Enterprise have exchanged bitter words, as to which franchise was the superior one.

The 80-year-old actor didn't elaborate how their retribution should be carried out.
