Neil deGrasse Tyson Picks Between Star Trek Enterprise And Star Wars Millennium Falcon


In the latest installment of National Geographic's Star Talk, celebrity scientist Neil DeGrasse Tyson launched the latest in a round of blows against Star Wars by elements of the News Corporation.

After some unflattering stories on Fox News recently, Tyson told NatGeo's in-house production that Star Trek's USS Enterprise is the easy choice over the Millennium Falcon if he were offered the opportunity to pilot one or the other.

"There are real scientists and real engineers on staff [who are] on the ship, monitoring its engines, its warpdrive and photon torpedoes," he said. "It is the first-ever spaceship represented in storytelling that was not designed to go from one place to another — it was only designed to explore."
