What? Come on Jordan, there has been Star Trek episodes that has moved me to tears. It explores what it means to be human, explore loss, and friendship. Also, the tech in Star Trek seem more within reach than Star Wars.

Ehab saleh (5 days ago)
No his alive but most of those sort of humand are a result of being introvert,reading to much and they have Good ability to endoscopy But ofcourse that's useless and boring if you wanna be sociable person cuz most of humans communication is about listening being curious and of course funny, silly most of time,and stereotype person i think

2:15 "And in fact to expand on that a little bit I think that you’ll find..." is when Jordan's thinking "Conan what's going on why are you not interrupting me" but he had to keep going

Short answer.. star trek is a utopian socialism (Though I always wondered who "volunteers" to work in a dilethium mine exactly). While in the star wars universe ..asside from the stupid "took the 30 days course of how to be a Jedi knight for dummies" it's a complete clusterfuck of every bit of everything. All ruled loosely from above by a very realistic bureaucracy that is also very much not effective..just like in real life. Not to mention lone star ships where response time is less than a second compared to a galaxy class ship where they talk on and on before doing something

I have new appreciation for Jordan. That was impressive as Hell. If that was delivered extemporaneously, as it appears it was, that was lightning fast and without a single hiccup. Wow, Jordan. I now understand why a guy who can only claim to do "Various" things in the execution of his "Job" is kept around by Conan. Brilliant!

This is ALMOST as good as Patton Oswalt's Star Wars filibuster on Parks & Rec (the complete uncut version). That was maybe the greatest sci-fi nerd rant I've ever seen. If you haven't seen it, here's the link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BBhNkywMJY&t=275s

Well Star trek is grounded in our own frame of reference and as such suffers from the limits of our own trife reality. In fact, star wars delves more into the world of fantasy and mythology an touches on some universal mythological themes that have been present across humanity since the beginning of time. You’ll find that most cultures on earth share a common mythology, in fact the Greek Odysseus was known as Ulysses in Rome, the Greek Zeus was known as Jupiter in Rome, the Greek Poseidon was known as Neptune in Rome, and you’re talking about a story of a young farm boy from the middle of nowhere that goes up against a great oppressor, and this story is common in a lot of mythology such as Davie and Goliath and you’ll find again that this touches a core human emotion that we that we all need to explore through a fantasy world those concepts which we cannot achieve in our own reality world. Now, on another note I find that the universal worldwide acceptance of Star Wars is also grounded in this commonality that we all share instead of being limited through one frame of reference, through one focal point we can see things in a cross-cultural manner if you will. And in fact to expand on that a little bit I think that you’ll find, the star wars universe is relatable for any culture on earth, any economic standing, any financial standing on earth, because again we’re talking about themes that are core to the concept of humanity in general and emotional. Furthermore, I can tell you that the types of themes that you’re talking about in star trek are limited to a certain set of circumstances that exist in almost a Two-Dimensional Plane, where in star wars you’re really exploring different feelings about humanity, happiness, sadness, all the various spectrums of the human existence, and I find that even though you’re talking about characters that are often not human, we as human beings can identify through their struggles and you’ll find that most great storytelling has to deal with a protagonist, an ordinary person against extraordinary odds and I think that if you look at the literature across the history of recorded time, you’ll find that a lot of the greatest stories have followed that same theme. The Story line is almost unimportant because you’re talking about grand themes here about human achievement when faced with unlikely odds, and furthermore I can tell you that beyond that, it’s something that we can all agree-upon, it is all something that we can all identify with, and relatability as I’m sure you know as someone that works in the story telling world, is a concept that is necessary to have an audience invest themselves in the story that you’re telling. I’ll also tell you that the Star Wars Universe, while on some level is very exotic, had a musical soundtrack grounded in 19th century romantic music and in fact I can relate Star Wars, the appeal of it, towards some of the great impressionist paintings like the Dutch of Van Gogh, because his paintings all though not photographic, if you will, or photo realistic, inspired our own imagination to latch on to the concepts present in the painting. And for example if you look Van Gogh’s, “Starry Night”, you’ll see that, again while it doesn't necessarily look exactly like a city in stars and the wind blowing through the trees, you can feel the feeling of what it was like to be in that situation, you know unlike looking at a photograph which again, gives you that two dimensional representation, a split second, micro-second of time if we will, and as anyone knows that’s had a bad photograph taken of them, a split second in time doesn't often represent the whole picture. However, when you’re talking about the idea of a painting, and certainly an oil painting, an impressionist oil painting, you’re not necessarily capturing all the minute details, you’re capturing a feeling. Now, how do you put a feeling down on canvas? How do you put a feeling down on the screen, well that’s the job of the artistic storytelling, and in fact the story teller in this case took his own human emotions, his own human struggles and that of others, and put them into a fantastic circumstance, which none of us which none of us could have possibly experienced, yet can all take pride in, relate to, again the young struggling farm boy wanting to be a part of another. These are things that were touched upon in 1976’s, “Rocky”, I’m talking about the original “Rocky”, it wasn't about winning the fight, that movie’s not a boxing movie. That movie is about an ordinary guy, placed in extraordinary circumstances. A guy, he was the underdog, you know. Another common concept you find a lot. He was the underdog that wanted make it, all he wanted to do, was go the distance. He wanted to make it to the Philadelphia Spectrum, it probably has some corporate brand name now, but at the time, 1976 shot in 1975, it was called the Philadelphia Spectrum. These theatres and arenas, amphitheatres had real names back then, you know I think Fenway Park is still named as such, Candlestick Park I’m sure has been renamed, I don’t really follow sports myself, but I’ve heard these terms said. And I know that a lot of the rich, you know like Shay Stadium I think is like City Bank Field or something, but *Clears throat* that’s not really relevant to what I’m talking about here, but interesting nevertheless. However, what I’m saying is that for an artist to accurately portray a feeling, on film or a canvas, so whatever the medium, I mean you could be talking about a mound of clay, really the artistic meaning is irrelevant when a singer gets up and sings, you don’t care about the vocal cords vibrating in certain frequencies. You’re trying to take part in, relate to a certain feeling that, that artist is trying to convey. When a sculptor takes a look at a hunk of mud and clears away certain sections to make this great monolith of art, again, it’s not about the minerals that are present in the mud, it’s about the feeling that you’re trying to convey.
