This is probably as geeky as a “would-you-rather”-type game gets — would you rather pick the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars? Or Star Trek‘s Starship Enterprise?
For National Geographic StarTalk host Neil deGrasse Tyson this is a laughable no-brainer.
“Oh, that’s easy, oh, my gosh. The Enterprise — there’s no question,” he says.
Watch the video for his explanation as to why he’d pick the Enterprise — and also explain “fake-real” vs. “fake-fake.”
To put it in earthly terms, it would be like picking a cool-but-junky muscle car from the ’60s vs. a Tesla. Sure, there’s a cool factor to both, but one is going to be much, much more practical.
