Star Trek's Rivalry: Star Wars Versus Star Trek

Good Essays
Star Wars vs Star Trek is a rivalry that has been going on since 1977 when Star Wars released A New Hope in theaters. Although Trekkies seem to believe that Star Trek is better than Star Wars, they would be wrong. Star Wars The Force Awakens broke the box office record and has a net worth of $1.783 billion, while Star Trek’s highest net worth is only $282 million. Darth Vader is the greatest cinematic villain of all time, bar none. Star Trek's Khan was, in all fairness, one of the best as well. But a plastic-chested, Shakespeare-quoting Ricardo Montalban or venom-spewing Benedict Cumberbatch can't hold a lightsaber to Vader. Star Wars also has better weapons, Star Wars’ lightsaber, a pulsating beam of light that is a sword that slices through

Star Trek strategy, as described by Peter J Brews, underscores how strategy must be evaluated: as a work of creative fiction sending firms boldly to go where none have gone before. Perhaps you are a CEO or business unit manager…
