Star Wars and Star Trek: the two most heavily debated IPs when it comes to which is the better space saga. One is a science fantasy saga revolving around telekinetic power and laser swords, and the other is a science fiction adventure with scientists and blasters. Some will tell you that you can’t like both.
Well, we rock with a No Bullshit guarantee. So, I’ll call BS on that one.
Because I like both.
Like. A lot.
In all seriousness, though, I have no idea why these two franchises are constantly pitted against each other. In all types of entertainment, I just don’t get the constant competition and aggression of ‘my series is better than yours!’ In the end, it all comes down to the story and, I just don’t see how you can’t like (or in my case, love) both!
Storytelling is one of the most powerful tools when it comes to entertainment and marketing. The message you are trying to push out to your audience is best moved across in the story you tell. We as humans have a rich tradition of storytelling that is important for society. It’s an important human characteristic that we have. It’s natural for us to tell stories and inform others of our life events, and has been used for teaching lessons and spreading messages for thousands of years. Evolving from cave drawings to oral traditions, to the written word, stories have been passed down and spread across the world. This is organic in nature, nothing a droid could do.
No matter the media, we all consume stories. Where would we be without them?
The stories that matter, the ones that are important to us at that moment, are the ones that will stick with us for a long time.
So I’ll immerse myself in these movies. I’ll take in the planetary explorations of strange, new worlds, and I’ll smile bright seeing a princess of Alderaan turn into a General of the Resistance. Those are the stories that are most important to me.
Boldly go where no one has gone before! Tell the stories that matter, the ones that you need to hear.
