Well as most of you (or some) know, Star Trek fans and Star Wars fans are often in dissagreement or disliking of one another. But i was watching TNG today and noticed something during the credits...

Industrial Lights and Magic is credited to helping with each episode of The Next Generation. Industrial Lights and Magic is a major part of Lucas Arts....Ironic eh?

I'm a huge Star Trek fan - not to the point of attending the conventions or wearing the uniforms or a Klingon costume - but I've been watching ST episodes since I was a little kid.

I enjoyed TNG AFTER the first couple of seasons - up until then, they were just original Star Trek remakes (done poorly) but got much better when Tasha Yar put on the two piece and did some "downloading" with Data....

Liked Voyager, but missed the entire last two seasons because our cable company got rid of the channel that had it. Hated DeepSpace 9. Loved Enterprise, but it was too short lived.

I like Star Wars, but never got into it as much as others. I think I liked the "possible" future that Star Trek showed for humans, as opposed to the "long ago, in a galaxy far, far away" stuff....

Kirk, Stewart and then Scott Bakula, in that order for Captains....WAYYYAAYYYYY down the list is that Katherine Captain chick...

i just see most scifi as C or B class movies. they have potential that isnt reached and become poorly made.

lol....that's not what i was saying...his post of...

:quote: Tdown to scifi :/quote:

...can be interpreted to mean "ALL" scifi (and that's how I understood it) but the genre of 'scifi' would include his avatar. His response should have been written to include "channel" ....if that's what his true intention was - and if that's the case (which it obviously is), the grammar Nazi should look within himself for perfection before slamming me for a T instead of a D :dodgy: .....lol...but enough of that...

...but overall, marvin is correct on some of the lower budget MOVIES...they are made kinda crappy...

I was speaking about scifi in general. Victa originally posted about star trek/star wars and the fact that....

.....which has little or nothing to do with the "scifi channel" in it's proper description...perhaps star wars might appear there, but Star Trek is on the lower 50 channels more often...so it matters not for the reference to the "scifi channel" in general...

The irony he points out is that one company produced (or helped produce) the special effects for two competing (if you can call it that) shows within one particular genre.
