WATCH: Neil DeGrasse Tyson answers the age-old question of which is best, the Millenium Falcon or The USS Enterprise

December 4th, 2015 by Phil Robinson Comments


World-renowned astrophysicist and Internet sensation Neil DeGrasse Tyson is here to settle the oldest question in the sci-fi fandom big book of war; which would win in a fight, the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars, or Star Trek’s Starship Enterprise?

Using his logic and scientific prowess for good, the intellectual personality – who is no stranger to dissecting the science behind science fiction – has weighed up the facts and made his decision, after being asked by a fan via National Geographic’s Youtube channel via Squareeyed on their Star Talk show, DeGrasse Tyson answers, almost immediately with no hesitation, following the question “Millenium Falcon or Starship Enterprise? Which one would you choose and why?”

Check out his decision in the video below:

Despite picking the side of Star Trek – and splitting the SquareEyed office in half with screams of joy or rage – we don’t see this bringing a conclusion to the great debate anytime soon.

Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further... If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths. Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
