Star Wars and Star Trek Stars Mourn Loss of Carrie Fisher


There’s often a feeling of competition between Star Wars and Star Trek fans, but today stars of both great science fiction franchises mourn the loss of Carrie Fisher.

We all miss General Leia, and know that her legacy will live on in the hearts of the fans whose lives she touched. Today we all need the force to be with us.

William Shatner and Carrie Fisher often sparred on social media, but truly cared for each other.

Devastating indeed, may the force be with all Star Wars fans today.

We feel that way too Lando.

We agree Marina, 2016 is a scruffy looking nerf herder.

Bryan Fuller’s pet even sent condolences to Carrie Fisher’s beloved French Bulldog.

Meanwhile Carrie Fisher’s bulldog has this tweet pinned.

It isn’t just Star Trek and Star Wars stars though, all of Hollywood is mourning Carrie Fisher.

It doesn’t matter if you love Star Trek or Star Wars more, it really doesn’t. They are both incredible pieces of science fiction that helped mold the lives and childhoods of countless people. Through Princess Leia we learned that it doesn’t matter what your title is, you can still take command of the rescue mission. The Star Wars universe just isn’t going to be the same without General Leia in it.
