I mean seriously,...most of the clips have a Star Wars scene that are almost the same?

God damn it, humans on space ships? That's Firefly. Star Wars ripped off Firefly. And now Abrams is ripping off Star Wars. Mother fuckers.

Re: Almost every clip?

Yeah, and another blatant Star Wars rip off by Trek is Stratos from The Cloud Minders - so obviously a riff on Bespin from Empire... oh... wait...

Even Vengeance looks exactly like the Death Star. The resemblance in uncanny. Almost like I look like Charlize Theron.

Huh, I thought that was the last one. You mean it's going to be Star Wars again?
