When Star Wars battles Star Trek…

We all have our personal fandom when it comes to the most popular science-fiction entertainment.  There are those who believe that the Star Trek universe rules, there are those who believe that the Star Wars universe is triumphant.  I personally don’t have a dog in the fight, I love both universes equally.

Which came to a head last night in Fresno, California.

Let me explain.

As part of a promotion for their minor league baseball team, the Fresno Grizzlies held “Star Wars Night.”  And sure enough, during the game, Darth Vader and a crew of stormtroopers made their way onto the field, where they were greeted by a landing party from the Enterprise.

This could get ugly.  Ugly like Jar Jar Binks wearing a red tunic ugly.

So what happened when Gene Roddenberry’s imagination faced George Lucas’ imagination?

This.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!

This is too freakin’ funny!

A freakin’ dance off to the music of Afrika Bambaataa’s “Planet Rock”!

And this epic battle of space history did exactly what it was supposed to do –

It promoted the Fresno Grizzlies minor league baseball team.

Truly, the force is strong with the Grizzlies.

Live long and prosper, guys.
