George Takei Advocates Star Peace, Knocks "Twilight"

After "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" actors start slinging mud, Hikaru Sulu steps in and identifies a much greater threat.

Leave it to William Shatner to instigate a flame war between Trekkies and Star Wars fanboys. After he called the latter franchise 'derivative' of his own series, Carrie Fisher stepped in to retaliate, and the back-and-forth between aging sci-fi stars could have gotten really tedious...

Until the inimitable George Takei stepped in. Listen as our favorite intergalactic gay (who has participated in both series) asks his comrades to reconcile and take up arms against a bigger phantom menace: glittery vampires. He still has a healthy appreciation for a six pack, though.
