William Shatner sided with Star Trek in the Star Trek vs. Star Wars debate that we all still have, whether we admit it or not.

Shatner did a video interview with his daughter at his site, The Shatner Project. That's where Shat spoke truth to Shatnition.

Shatner clearly is throwing bait to virulent fans. He's right about Star Wars special effects . But then he makes the circular argument that Trek is better, because thanks to JJ Abrams, Trek now has superior special effects.

He nails Star Wars on the lack of women. He says the Trek women are prettier. Oh no he didn't. Yes! He did. But it's true, just by sheer volume.

Shatner argued this point in the 1998 movie Free Enterprise. But here he is today, in what appears to be an Ultimate Fighting t-shirt.

The whole three and a half minute interview is silly and precious. Check out his daughter's face when Shatner says "Star Wars is derivative of Star Trek."

Then when he starts talking about Princess Leia. It looks like she's thinking, "Here we go."

RevolutionSF's Joe Crowe inches ever closer to Shatneity.
