Re: star trek vs star wars in five minutes question

When Jar Jar Binks can take down as many Battle Droids with crude aquatic weaponry and his own inherent clumsiness as a fully trained Jedi Knight armed with the best weapon his or her Order has to offer it does kinda make one wonder just how much of the Jedi mythos built up over the centuries was just pretty damn good P.R., much like how J. Edgar Hoover portrayed the FBI as almost indestructible warriors for law and justice while whitewashing the weaknesses and failings.

Of course it didn't help that the Jedi tended to fall hook, line and sinker for their own publicity.
