Carrie Fisher Star Trek, actress Carrie Fisher fired back at William Shatner for comments he made in September that Star Trek is better than Star Wars.
In an interview posted on her YouTube, she said, “They’re not in the same league. I mean, they have the word ‘Star’ in the title.” She knocked Star Trek’s budget: “Maybe [it’s] just their ‘effects,’ they’re not called ‘special effects’ in the case of [Star Trek].”
In response to Shatner’s claims Fisher never fit into Princess Leia’s famous metal bikini, she cracked,
“By the way, Bill has borrowed it,” and she challenged him to a costume-off. ”
From there, Fisher got personal.
“My space buns — theyâ€™re so much better than (Leonard) Nimoy’s ears.”
Then things turned political.
“I hear that (former vice president Dick) Cheney likes ‘Star Trek,'” she said with a grin.
Before signing off, Fisher offered a tip aimed at Shatner.
“So, here’s the thing. If you see Bill Shatner, call him Han Solo,” she said. Ahem, thatâ€™s Qoâ€™noS, but point taken.
