This woman trolled Star Wars and the mansplaining that followed was out of this world
Here’s someone called Sarah Griffith joking about Star Wars and the way its characters behave differently in alien environments compared to people on Star Trek.
what I really love about Star Wars is how dumb as shit the characters are. every time they land on a new planet in Star Trek, they check to see if there’s oxygen, signs of life, etc. Star Wars just bounds out of the Millennium Falcon like “oh cool is that grass?” fucking idiots

Possibly she knew what kind of response it would generate. Possibly she didn’t. But we’re very glad she said it because this happened and it’s as least as enjoyable as The Last Jedi.
Star Wars is fantasy, Star Trek is science fiction. What is hard to understand?

I guess the hardest thing to understand in this thread is that I’m making a light joke

Congratulatoons, you just discovered the difference between science fiction and science fantasy😉

There’s like 30,000 years of exploration and terraforming preceding the Star Wars movies. Star Trek is just a few hundred years from us on earth, and they’re still exploring and charting the universe.

To be fair most of the habitable worlds in their galaxy are known and have been known for thousands of years and they have computers in their ships to tell them where they are and where they’re heading through hyperspace.

They still managed to unwittingly land the Millennium Falcon inside a giant space worm…

Star Wars is set in a long-standing spacefaring civilization where most of the galaxy is mapped, inhabited, and actively participates in a pan-galactic government.
Star Trek is about space pioneers a few hundred years from now. https://t.co/uLkeSXlKlB

But I mean in star trek they always wait until they’re already breathing the atmosphere before they pull out the tricorders….

They do it from atmosphere to make sure it’s breathable, then take more detailed readings with instruments up close
