In order to put an end to the bickering between William Shatner and Carry Fisher on which sci-fi franchise is better, George Takei asked for a ceasefire in order to face off a mutual foe: Twilight.
Stepping into galactic peace broker mode, Takei warned : "What is needed today now more than ever is star peace, for there is an ominous mutual threat to all science fiction."
"It's called Twilight, and it is really really bad."
The actor, who provided the voice of Lok Durd in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, making him the sole cast member from the original Star Trek series to also have a role in the Star Wars franchise, went on: "Gone is any sense of heroism, camaraderie, or epic battle. In its place, we have vampires that sparkle, and moan, and go to high school".
